This student accommodation development located in the heart of Glasgow’s west end required demolition of a former commercial building to transform the site into a bright, modern retail space and student residence.

The city centre site location proved to be challenging as railway tunnels run directly underneath the site. Patrick Parsons liaised extensively with SPT and a series of reports were prepared, including a dilapidation survey of the inner circle line, to determine the condition of the tunnel and which also allowed for accurate setting out of foundations meaning that transfer of any vibration during pile installation and any additional loading to the tunnel would not occur.
