Mount Oswald student accommodation

It took just 60 weeks from receipt of order by PCE to structural completion handover of the last block.

Main Contractor

Interserve Construction


Durham University

The quality of the built environment and the sensitivity of the surrounding architecture were fundamental drivers for both the University, its partners and local Planners.

The aspiration was to mix Georgian architecture with contemporary design to create a link between the existing student accommodation in Durham and the newer, more recently constructed modern University Buildings.


David Dixon, Contracts Manager for Interserve Construction:

“PCE in all their dealings with my team here on Mount Oswald have been professional and courteous, their Health & Safety standards were exemplary, and quality of their precast concrete solution was excellent.”

60 weeks from order placement to completion of 712 rooms.
