NEWS STUDENT ACCOMMODATION


Brymor Group to renew Southampton University halls of residence


5


Portsmouth-based construction firm Brymor Group has been awarded the contract to refurbish and reinvent the Montefiore Block Halls of Residence for students at the University of Southampton.


Built in the 1960s, Montefiore Blocks A & B are the oldest accommodation blocks at the University’s Wessex Lane Campus. While the buildings remain structurally sound, the facilities they provide have reached the end of their design life, and the continual maintenance issues do not reflect the standards of accommodation that the


university wishes to provide to new first year students when the buildings are re- opened in 2021. The project, designed by Newcastle-based practice FaulknerBrowns, recently started on site. The design will see the complete refurbishment of the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen facilities and communal spaces, with better kitchens added and communal washrooms converted into self-contained pods. Alongside internal works, landscaping, paving, footpaths, signage and lighting will be considered to improve the exterior of the buildings.


The re-opening of these halls in 2021 will not only attract new students to the university, but will also provide it with a boost in income, as currently the buildings are unoccupied.


The director of residential services at the University of Southampton, Trudi Vout, comments: “The University of


Southampton is a substantial contributor to the thriving culture within the city, and we are committed to improving the future living experience for our students. We look forward to welcoming them to the newly refurbished halls in 2021.”
