Exeter student housing project takes shape

Work is now well underway on new multi-million pound student accommodation hub in Exeter

Midas Construction has been on site at Exeter Cricket Club for a month and has already begun the bulk groundworks for the £8 million development, which will boast halls of residence for 159 students. 

As part of the project, Midas has also taken down the former cricket pavilion at the Prince of Wales Road venue, replacing it with a temporary building on the grounds while the development works are ongoing. 

A new, state-of-the art, two-storey pavilion complete with changing rooms, kitchen, bar and office space will be built in conjunction with the student accommodation.

“This is an exciting new development, which will not only offer more modern accommodation for those studying at the nearby University of Exeter but also a brand new cricket pavilion protecting the future of Exeter Cricket Club,” said Alan Hope, Chief Executive at Midas.

“One of our first jobs on site was to erect a temporary cabin for those using the current pavilion so as not to disrupt the cricket season.”

Midas is due to work on the site until June 2016, with the keys to the new pavilion expected to be handed over to the cricket club this December.
