Greyfriars House, Coventry
  • Value: £3.6m
  • Duration: 49 weeks
  • Completion: February 2020
  • Client: Blue Bear Management

The conversion of the former newspaper office Greyfriars House, located in Coventry City Centre, into a 98-bedroom student accommodation. The development, which included the construction of a double rooftop extension adding a further two storeys to the building, contains a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom studio apartments. Solar panels on the roof generate all the electricity to service the roof top extension, reducing the impact of the development on the local electrical network. TCC were involved in the development from the outset through to completion and delivered the project on time and to budget.
