Peel Park Campus topped out

The development of the University of Salford’s Peel Park campus has reached a milestone with a topping out ceremony for the £81m project.

Graham Construction has completed the steel frameworks for the site which will consist of nine blocks ranging from five to nine storeys. We reported this project here, back in February.

Peel Park will provide a total of 1,387 new bed spaces across two separate sites.

Graham Construction started work on the project in November 2013 as part of the Salford Villages Consortium.

This includes Graham Investment Projects, Campus Living Villages, Equitix and Kier Project Investment, who have jointly invested and developed the property with the project finance being provided by Standard Life Investments.

The site is expected to be open by September 2015.
