The Pad (Phase I) was our first Student Accommodation development, for the first time working with HG Construction with design by Reading + West Architects LLP.

This accommodation provides 116 spacious bedrooms and studios , furnished to a high standard with each featuring an en-suite shower room.

Approached by the homeowner at 71 Egham Hill, we examined what type of redevelopment could be provided. With its commanding location, sitting right next door to Royal Holloway, University of London, it was decided that accommodation for students at the University would be the preferred use for the site. We agreed terms with the owner of 71 Egham Hill and later the owner of the adjacent property at 61 Egham Hill. To read more about our land requirements please see here.

Our proposals were prepared in close consultation with the local planning authority to take proper account of the characteristics of the site and the fact that the location was also adjacent to a residential area.

This was the first occasion that Runnymede Borough Council had considered a privately developed student housing development and consent was eventually, after an appeal, granted in 2011.  Construction commenced in June 2012 and completed in the summer of 2013 and remains a very popular option with students at Royal Holloway and has been fully booked every year since opening.

This accommodation provides 125 spacious rooms all furnished to a high standard.
