Create Construction secures planning for second phase of Salford Quays PBSA project

Create Construction has received planning for the second phase of its Discovery Quays student accommodation project, in partnership with Bricks Capital.

Phase two of the PBSA scheme in Salford Quays has a construction value in excess of £30m.

It will offer 457 student beds, extra communal and lounge spaces, and will double the facility’s footprint with an additional 14,200m2 of living space.

Work for the 15-storey building will begin in Q3 of 2020, with completion due two years later.

Paul Mathison, CEO at Create Construction, commented: “Our partnership with Bricks Capital is going from strength to strength, as they share the same core values of ‘integrity’, 'collaborative', and ‘easy to do business with’. 

“We are looking forward to another successful partnership in the delivery of this next phase of our Discovery Quays project in Salford — an important part of the exciting regeneration of the city."

Peter Prickett, group CEO at Bricks Capital, said: “The expansion of our ‘true’ development at Salford Quays marks another major step in establishing the brand as a major player in the PBSA management arena and we’re delighted to be working with Create once more in delivering this exciting project.”

The specialists in high-volume accommodation will complete phase one of the PBSA scheme this month (September), when it will welcome its first guests.

It comprises a 75%/25% split between club suites and shared apartments, with 402 student bedrooms over 14,500m2.
