Construction Firm 'Turkington' Issue Monthly Newsletters To Update Local Community On Student Accommodation at 48-52 York Street.

October Newsletter

Welcome to the October 2023 edition of our monthly newsletter relating to the York Street Student Accommodations construction project. We are taking all practical precautions to mitigate the effect of the works on the building’s surrounding neighbours, however due to the nature of the works, occasionally some inconvenience may be experienced and for this we apologise. 

These newsletters are produced on a monthly basis to let you know what is going on and how it may affect you during the project.

Brief Overview Of The Project.

The works involve the construction of an 11 storey building with a reinforced concrete frame and SFS cladding and glazed externals. The building will accommodate 307 studios with communal facilities and 3no. retail units at ground floor level.

Progress Works For October 2023.

During this month, we’ll continue to build the concrete frame on site, with the two stair cores advancements and 1st floor slab being poured later in the month.

Working Hours. 

The works on site will continue to take place between the hours of 7am to 5pm on Monday to Friday and 7am to 1 pm on Saturdays. If any works are to take place outside the hours mentioned above, our site team will ensure to communicate it to anyone who may be affected by the works.

Upcoming Works - Footpath Closure. 

It is expected that the footpath in front of our site on Frederick Street will be closed for a few hours on Monday 9th October and again on Monday 16th October to allow for the concrete pour of the 1st floor slab. Traffic Management and signage will be in place to ensure guidance and the safety of pedestrians during the task.
