Projects – 'Student Accommodation New Build'



Potain MR225


Lancaster Street, Birmingham


New Build


Radius Group is supporting major UK contractor, Winvic, with the construction of a multi-room student accommodation new build; comprising 33 storeys, with 9 and 12 storey blocks to the sides.


The development provides a mix of en-suite cluster, studios and accessible studio units including ground floor external landscaped areas, internal reception, hub, fitness and cafe spaces.

Due to the close proximity of this site to neighbouring buildings and the specific lifting capacities required for the project, the MR225 was the favoured tower crane at Lancaster Street. The tower crane was initially erected to 77m tall in June 2023, and will be tie & climbed to reach a height of 102m in the summer of 2025. The crane will be on site for 125 weeks in total.
