Blandford Square is a 371-bed student accommodation scheme separated over two multi-storey blocks in Newcastle. The accommodation comprises a mix of cluster flats and studio apartments with communal areas including a lounge, study areas, reception, laundry facilities and a gym, together with landscaped garden, bike storage facilities and car park available to tenants.

FTSQUARED were appointed as Project Managers to re-position the development following the insolvency of GB Building Solutions. Following a detailed project audit and review our team quickly formulated completion strategy which defended our Client’s exit.

The project was successfully delivered in a sequenced programme and within the anticipated budget. The developer’s potential liabilities were mitigated and the asset sale was completed as anticipated.
