Galliford Try’s Building business has signed contracts with Mace Developments to construct a new student accommodation block in Cardiff.

The 644-bed facility is due to be built on the site of the former west wing of Cardiff Royal Infirmary, on Glossop Road in the Adamsdown area of the city.

The 10-storey development will incorporate a mixture of apartments, studio-style living and cluster accommodation. Other facilities include two retail units, an on-site media room, gym with yoga studio, private dining and study areas. A private courtyard will provide a dedicated open space for students.

Mark Wusthoff, Galliford Try South West Area Director, said: “We are delighted to have been trusted by Mace Developments with this much-needed student accommodation project for Cardiff. We have an excellent track record in providing high-quality accommodation within Wales and we look forward to building on that reputation at Glossop Road in conjunction with all the stakeholders involved.”
