Morecrofts were awarded this 522-bedroomed student accommodation scheme in Nottingham city centre by main contractor NMCN PLC after the successful completion of the 330-bedroomed scheme on Talbot Street.


The real achievement here was to hand over on time despite NMCN sadly going into administration halfway through this project. We adapted and were able to work closely with a really positive client – completing the scheme directly for Jensco and the team in time for the September 2022 academic year.

The project involved the new build of two linked student accommodation blocks containing 522 bedrooms and studios. Works to the 6-storey building near Nottingham train station included the complete design and installation of all electrical and life safety systems, such as mains distribution, sub mains, main switchgear and supplementary distribution equipment as well as lighting, emergency lighting, small power systems, fire alarm, data systems and lightning protection. This was a modern, high-specification project providing fantastic living accommodation for the large university population in Nottingham.

Morecrofts carried out the design and installation of all electrical services at our Ten Traffic Street project in Nottingham City Centre, a 522-bedroom student accommodation scheme. They performed extraordinarily well throughout the project and played a significant part in us managing to achieve PC and in turn student occupation in September 2022. This was a complex scheme that suffered enhanced pressure when our construction company, NMCN PLC went into administration in October 2021. This resulted in Jensco employing Morecrofts and other sub–contractors directly to complete the project. The proactive way in which Morecrofts dealt with the obstacles in front of them was commendable and we would have no hesitation in using them in the future and also recommending them to other contractors & developers alike.
