New Apartments, Lincoln College

Lincoln College has completed the latest step in its project to expand city-centre student accommodation, acquiring the highly coveted property of 120-121 High Street.

The 19th century grade II listed building, located on the corner of High Street and Alfred Street, was occupied by NatWest and Coutts bank. All businesses on the high street remained open and operational, whilst the 8,100sqft extension to the rear of the building was redeveloped as accommodation for Lincoln students.

The conversion of the property created 15 modern apartments, with a further storey being added to the property providing two additional penthouse apartments.

The new penthouse flats were constructed on the roof of the existing structure and were built using a steel frame solution, with the last details being finalised by our delivery team.

The project took place adjacent to an occupied live environment, due to the close proximity of the College, residential and working areas, noise played a particularly large part when planning out the works. With close and regular coordination with the College, we arranged our works to avoid sensitive periods within the College day and calendar in order to avoid causing any disruption.
