New NUI Galway Student Accommodation
We are delighted to announce that planning permission has been granted by An Bord Pleanala for a new-build 674-bed student accommodation project on the NUI Galway campus. This project follows on from the recently completed Goldchrest student accommodation project at the same location, which provided 429 beds. PUNCH provided civil, structural and traffic engineering on both projects.
The new scheme will comprise 125 no. apartments with 4-6 ensuite bedrooms per cluster, with communal living facilities in each. The scheme is arranged in four blocks, ranging in height from 4-8 storeys, and has a total gross floor area of 23,858m2.
