Portobello House student accommodation
Plonked – quite literally – on the doorstep of Sheffield University’s Sir Robert Hadfield and Amy Johnson buildings Portobello House is within easy walking distance of the University and is a short walk from Sheffield Hallam University and the city’s main train station.
JBCEURO Ltd. was subcontracted by Robertson Construction to fit out all the apartments and common rooms with kitchens, furnishings and safety features for this £6.1 million project that comprises a combination of studios, ‘super studios’ and self-contained two-bedroom apartments totalling 128 beds over seven storeys, on a tight city centre site.
Lawrence Street apartments York
Buoyed by their success at Portobello Street in Sheffield JBCEURO Ltd. was given a new contract by Robertson’s Construction to fit out a new four-storey student accommodation building on Lawrence Street in York.
The £5.8 million project was along with the new build flats to turn a grade II-listed former working men’s club and The Tam O’Shanter public house into a 115 bedroom premium student accommodation scheme, complete with communal work space and leisure facilities.
The facility is now open accommodating students from the University of York and York St John University.
