The construction of Nurtur House reached full height ahead of programme this week. Fraser Morgan was joined by Warden Construction, David Cox Architects, and special guest, the Lord Mayor of Sheffield.
Located in the heart of the St Vincent’s Quarter, and with views right across the City, the team marked the occasion by heading to the roof for a short speech.
The 288-bed scheme, valued at £26million, is part of Fraser Morgan’s health and wellbeing student-living offer; a concept which has hit a real niche in the market in promoting healthy lifestyles and a focus on social interaction.
It features a roof gardens and ground level garden, large communal areas, a get-together facility for cooking events and nights in watching movies, cinema room and a gymnasium. It will also have an on-site concierge service offering healthy meals for students, as well as exercise classes including yoga and mindfulness sessions.
The development will offer a flexible choice of room styles for various budgets; from classic and premium, up to garden and penthouse.
Managing the scheme will be Nurtur Student Living, set up by Fraser Morgan to ensure the meticulous details of the development are managed at every step; from initial show flat viewings and tenancy management, to providing a regular friendly welcome and point of contact for any queries or advice.
Mark Robinson, Managing Director of Fraser Morgan, said: “We had a vision of what purpose-built student accommodation should be which is turning into an exciting reality here at Nutur House. The Fraser Morgan team, in conjunction with Nurtur Student Living, are really setting the bar with this facility as this development is much more than just student accommodation; it will be a place where students live to learn and learn to live.
“Offering students the best facilities, whether it be a friendly chat from our management team, a stunning roof-top terrace to socialise and relax with friends, or even our ‘smart laundry’ service, we will ensure they have the best chance to enjoy their time during their academic studies and ultimately gain the grades they require.”
Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Councillor Tony Downing, who was invited to site to mark the occasion, stated: “Seeing this new development changing Sheffield’s skyline really does set a new standard for students living in the City.
“The scheme principles of creating a healthy environment with a strong focus on personal wellbeing is very much welcomed and, once the development is complete in the Autumn, I am sure students will thrive during their time here in Sheffield.”
Nurtur House is the second health and wellbeing student-living offer by Fraser Morgan, with Warden Construction and David Cox Architects being appointed once again following the success of Canterbury Hall in Preston, which was fully let upon completion in 2018.
Nurtur House will be open in September 2020 ready for the student term intake.
