Ocon finishes latest student building

Manchester-based Ocon Construction has completed a £5m student accommodation scheme on Liverpool's London Road for Westville Developments, part of the Parkmooor Group.

The building, designed by architecture practice Lewis & Hickey, contains 100 en-suite studio apartments, over basement parking and ground floor retail.

Ocon has completed a total of 1,800 student beds for various developers this year. Ocon is currently on site with a £34m, 710-bed project, called Vine Court, on Chatham Street, for Liverpool University.

Andrew Barker, managing director of Ocon, said: "This is a high profile scheme that has seen us deliver the results within a challenging 12-month building programme."
