Works starts on Nantwich student housing


Work has started on new student accommodation at Reaseheath College.

Builder and developer, Seddon, has begun work on the £11m project, which will deliver five blocks of six, eight and 10-bedroom townhouses at the centre of the Nantwich campus.

Each of the two and three-storey buildings will feature communal and dining areas, a kitchen and bathroom facilities to promote shared living among students aged 16 and over.

A total of 200 bedrooms will be provided through the scheme.

The first phase will be finished in time for the start of the academic year in September 2018 and the second phase will be ready by December 2018.

The expansion is the result of continued demand for places at Reaseheath as one of the country’s leading, specialist land-based colleges.

Ben Hunt, Reaseheath’s head of estates, said: “The new halls of residence are an important part of our current £30 million development programme which is being delivered over the next 12 – 18 months.

“The project, which is supported through Cheshire & Warrington Local Enterprise Partrnership’s Skills Capital Fund, will ensure that the college has first-class, secure and safe onsite accommodation to support students on our advanced engineering, agricultural engineering, horticulture, food manufacturing, block release apprenticeships and associated courses.”

Ed Wootton of Seddon Construction, said: “It’s a privilege to work with clients such as Reaseheath and help them provide their students with the very best facilities and living standards possible.”
