Ogilvie Construction has started site operations to build a new student accommodation facility at Haymarket Yards in Edinburgh for Aurum UK.
When complete, the new facility will provide 156 high quality studio apartments. It will also include extensive internal and external amenities including study spaces, a gym, cinema and private dining facility, as well as a roof terrace and shared gardens.
Haymarket Yards is a zero-parking development with cycle parking for over 150 bikes. The building is well situated for easy access to public transport with Haymarket station and tram and bus stops nearby.
Donald MacDonald, Managing Director, Ogilvie Construction, said: “We are delighted to have started construction of this high-quality project for Aurum UK in the heart of the city. Our team has extensive experience in the student sector having successfully delivered 13 student accommodation facilities in Scotland over the last 7 years.”
Commenting on the project, Phil Johnson, Director of Who Hup’s Arum UK business said: “We are delighted to be working with Ogilvie on the delivery of Haymarket Yards. This is our first project in Scotland and adds to our growing pipeline of 1100 beds currently in development across the UK. We continue to look for opportunities to expand our footprint in the purpose-built student accommodation/living sectors.”
