We achieved substantial completion this weekend on Goldcrest Village, the new student accommodation on campus at NUI Galway. The state-of-the-art, 429-bed residence looks spectacular in the morning sunshine and is already bustling with students starting the new university term.
This project involved the design and construction of the new student residence with 4, 5, and 6 bedroom apartment types. There are 76 apartments in total all with communal living areas.
The development consists of a series of multi-storey accommodation blocks set around landscaped courtyards. The main block houses the reception and administration and there are excellent links to the campus network. The development also includes accommodation and parking facilities for the less mobile.
Constructed on a green field site on the north campus of the University this project greatly enhances the facilities for students in Galway City.
