Recent experience

Camberwell Campus, Peckham Road

Peckham Road Buildings

In 2012 Alumno completed the redevelopment of Georgian buildings on Peckham Road – formerly offices used by Southwark Council – into student accommodation for the University of the Arts London. This project reflects four years of work by Alumno and involved extensive consultation with Southwark Council, the University and the local community. The development included the refurbishment of four historic buildings (three of which are Grade II Listed) and a small new build extension to provide 155 bedspaces for the University. This sensitive development provided much needed improvement works to the buildings and ensures their long term maintenance through sustainable re-use as accommodation. It has provided much needed bedspaces to Camberwell College of Arts and created activity and a campus environment on this section of Peckham Road.

235-241 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow

Dumbarton Road

Alumno received planning permission in 2012 for the redevelopment of a brownfield site on Dumbarton Road. The scheme will provide 174 student bedrooms, with a ground floor retail unit and a landscaped courtyard and amenity deck for students. The site is within a short walking distance of the University of Glasgow and will be completed for the start of the academic year in 2014.
