Scheme kicks off later this month

McLaren - The Old Oaks student accomodation

McLaren Construction has been awarded a £45m contract to deliver a student accommodation project in Coventry.

The scheme, which will deliver close to 400 bedrooms, is being developed by McLaren Property.

The development, known as The Oaks, is situated within the Westwood Business Park and is next door to a Warwick university campus.

It will include four, five and six storey buildings and will provide a choice between individual studio apartments and shared ‘cluster’ units with communal kitchens and lounges.

Other facilities include a communal games room and lounge, an interactive training room as well as a landscaped external communal courtyard and a fifth floor paved terrace area.

Main construction begins at the end of the month with work expected to wrap up in May 2020.
