The design and build project commenced in October last year, with Robertson expected to finish work on the building in the summer of 2018.

David Cairns, Managing Director of Robertson Central, said: “This is Vastint Hospitality’s first student accommodation project in Europe and it is our job to ensure that their vision is realised. Our team has been on site for around six months and the progress to date has been significant, with the erection of the steel structure a sign of how far we’ve come. We look forward to completing the project and seeing the first students move in at the start of the 2018/19 academic year."

The S-shaped building will be set over six storeys, with a private courtyard to the south and a semi-public courtyard to the north. The accommodation will feature a mix of standard, cluster and accessible rooms.

The development will join other Robertson Central projects in the Glasgow area including Huntershill Community Sports Hub in Bishopbriggs for East Dunbartonshire Council and Ward Refurbishments for NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde at Stobhill and Gartnavel Hospitals.

Robertson Central also recently completed work on the ‘Heart of the Campus’ project for Glasgow Caledonian University – with their students likely to benefit from the student accommodation currently under construction.
