McAleer & Rushe wins International Project Award

McAleer & Rushe was engaged as the design and build contractor by the global leader in student accommodation to develop the scheme through the entire evolution process. The project, which was worth £50m, completely transformed and extended the existing derelict 1970’s landmark office building, Zurich House, on Stanhope Road.

The original structure was given a stateof- the-art refurbishment providing a 405-bed student accommodation along with the design and construction of an 11-storey new build extension delivering enough space for an additional 595 beds. Dominic Trainor, McAleer & Rushe Contracts Director, said, “It is a great honour to be recognised by our peers for this project, which further cements our position as leading contractors in the student accommodation sector.

I want to pay tribute to our team’s hard work and commitment and thank our client, GSA, for entrusting us with the scheme.
