Winner for Hertfordshire uni

27 July 2012 The University of Hertfordshire has announced the preferred bidder for its 3,000-bed student accommodation PPP scheme.
The Uliving consortium, comprising contractor Bouygues and not-for-profit accommodation operator Derwent Living, has been chosen for the £100m project.

Under the plans, 502 existing residences will be transferred to the private contractor to manage, while Uliving will build and operate a further 2,511 units at the university’s College Lane campus in Hatfield.

It will be delivered in three phases, the first of which is due to begin in May next year and completed in time for students arriving for the academic year in September 2014.

“This is a remarkable achievement for Uliving and we are really proud to be a part of such a transformational scheme,” said Stephane Slama-Royer, managing director of both Uliving and Bouygues Development.
