Morgan Sindall has been chosen to build a new development for Arts University Bournemouth (AUB).

The project is part of the redevelopment of its main campus and will see Morgan Sindall build a new 300-bed student accommodation scheme.

Morgan Sindall has already completed several schemes for AUB including its drawing studio, student services building, photography building, and other student accommodation projects.

The current project, which was secured via the Southern Construction Framework, will feature clusters of eight bedrooms with communal kitchen and dining areas.

These residences will be provided in three- and four-storey buildings that are located around a central courtyard.

Most of the bedrooms will have ensuite facilities, while the development as a whole will have a focus on sustainability, with upgraded pedestrian and cycle routes to connect the site with the nearby bus station.

The scheme is due to be finished in summer 2020.

Morgan Sindall is already on site at several other projects across the region, including a new £28m sports centre for Solent University in Southampton.
