JUSTICE MILL LANE
DML are working with Client Sydney and London Properties on the repurposing of a former Travelodge hotel into Student Accommodation. The site on Justice Mill Lane in Aberdeen currently houses a 128 bed hotel. DML are appointed as Development Manager, Project Manager and Quantity Surveyor on the scheme. Planning was obtained in March 2022 and works commenced on site in September 2022 with opening planned for September 2023.
This is one of several projects DML are working on with clients who have existing assets but are looking for “value add” opportunities due to the changing economic conditions of cities around the country. The repurposing of buildings is also a key factor in lots of clients sustainability agenda and the local council have been supportive of refurbishment rather than clearing the site in its entirety.
Following planning approval, DML was responsible for leading the procurement of a main contractor who started on site in September 2022. DML will act as Contract Administrator to deliver the scheme via a Traditional Standard Scottish Building Contract.
The final scheme will see 101 student bedrooms created with high quality modern amenity spaces provided throughout the building including a cinema, gym, common lounges, study spaces, private dining room and games rooms.
