The Tannery, Leicester

Student Accommodation

With 415 en-suite rooms and 47 studios, The Tannery is a student accommodation scheme
located just a short walk from De Montfort University and Leicester city centre. The latest
addition to the £250 million-plus Waterside Regeneration programme, The Tannery has
many communal facilities and amenities including a cinema, games room, fitness studio,
lounges and study areas.

Logistics were particularly challenging for this vast project as only selected timed delivery slots
were available. Careful consideration and robust coordination between the main contractor, the
specialist installer and Frameclad’s operations team ensured smooth and unhindered progress
to keep the development to time and on programme.

Case Studies

Goods Corner

Located in a prominent area of Edinburgh the scheme consisted of 3 blocks of student accommodation. Frameclad supplied all of the frames and floor cassettes to form the three-storey structure. The developer was keen to use some of the previous buildings stonework which were incorporated in the external cladding of the cottage building.
