The Story so far: The Croft, Derby

As the month of May draws to a close, we’re one step closer to opening our brand-new student accommodation in Derby, The Croft.

And with a little over four months to go until we open in September (eeekk), we wanted to share with you the latest progress on-site.

The progress at The Croft

We’ve been keeping things under wrap – quite literally, as the building has been surrounded with scaffolding for several months. But with another month in the bag, the scaffolding is disappearing, and the beauty of the building is starting to show.

Standing tall at eight floors high, the external work on the building – which is divided into three blocks (A, B and C), is almost complete and the final windows are being installed. As well as this, we’ve even started the brick work on the pathways in the courtyard.

          

So, that’s the outside. But what about the 326 bedrooms inside the building? Well, we’re pleased to say these are shaping up nicely too. Firstly, all en-suite bathrooms have been fitted, carpets are being laid and furniture is being installed in the coming weeks.

The bedrooms are arranged in 4-9 bed flats, and each flat comes with a shared kitchen and living area. The kitchen and internal walls are complete in block A and are being finished in B and C; ready for the fixtures and fittings to be installed.

You may have heard that The Croft will have a variety of on-site social spaces for its’ residents too. This includes a gym, common room, games area and study space – all of which are due for completion in August.
