Graham secures work on Edinburgh student projects providing over 600 beds
Contracting firm Graham has secured two key student accommodation projects in Edinburgh with a combined value of almost £35 million.
The deal with Watkin Jones, which specialises in the development of residential-for-rent schemes, involves projects close to Murrayfield Stadium and at nearby Gorgie Road.
Gary Holmes, regional managing director of Graham, said: “These projects further bolster our strong position in the student accommodation and build-to-rent sectors. The facilities we are constructing for Watkins Jones will provide high quality student accommodation, incorporating the full range of lifestyle and amenity facilities which today’s students expect.”
The £20.4m Westfield Road project near Murrayfield Stadium will provide almost 400 beds over seven storeys, while the £14.4m Gorgie Road development will deliver 249 beds. Both are due for completion in mid-2022.
Graham is a privately-owned company that specialises in the delivery of construction, civil engineering, interior fit-out, facilities management and investment projects. It operates from a network of 23 regional offices.
