Union Square - Phase II

Project Type – Residential, Small space conversion

In 2015, Taemar completed the renovation of five new studios and a new social area in the basement of Union Square.

Voted Newcastle and North East Student Hall of the Year 2015*, Union Square is an eight storey, 228 bed student accommodation located in Ouseburn, Newcastle upon Tyne. The development was completed in July 2014 opening its doors to students from almost 30 countries across the globe.

In summer 2015, Taemar began work on the creation of new social areas and a small number of additional apartments for the development in some under-utilised space in the ground floor of the initial development site.

Taemar completed construction of five additional studio apartments and a new dedicated social area for residents of Union Square. The communal area consisted of a break out room, dedicated study areas, cinema room and WC.

This renovation of the previously under used space was finished in 2015, on time and in budget, regardless of the additional challenges created as the team worked in an operational building.
