Located in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Verde Student accommodation offers both single and shared apartment options in addition to a vast array of leisure facilities. Its city centre location makes it popular with students of all ages, whether they’re studying at College or University. The building is situated in close proximity to St James’ Park, home of Newcastle United Football Club.

The colour and design of this building certainly has a standout appeal and we worked closely with the client to ensure the exterior envelope of the building met the requirements in terms of practicality and style.

Featuring both terracotta rainscreen cladding and aluminium rainscreen panels, the façade is designed to stand-up to the elements all-year-round. The steel framing system (SFS) backing structure provides an extremely strong and efficient construction solution.

  • Sapa 75 Si Windows
  • Terracotta rainscreen panels
