Founded in 1992, Unite Students was the UK’s first private provider of purpose-built student accommodation. Their goal is to create places for students to live where they can feel at home, making the leap to university and getting the most out of their time there – referred to as a “Home for Success”. William Coates where delighted to be the mechanical partner on this new build Unite Student project in Edinburgh working on behalf of McAleer & Rushe.
WThe project was a new mixed-use development of purpose built 580 bed student accommodation along with Class 1 (Retail) / Class 2 (Financial, Professional and other Services) and associated facilities. The building was designed around a central courtyard, with direct access from St Leonard’s Street via the entrance. The courtyard provides a communal focal space at the heart of the development within which students can safely congregate and interact.
