Case Studies

Foundry Courtyard

The Project
Ideally situated on the east side of Glasgow city; the 536-bedroom Foundry Courtyard development is ideally situated for Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian universities and City of Glasgow College.
Following a competitive tender process, the contract was awarded to Godfrey Syrett by multinational infrastructure group Balfour Beatty.
Balfour Beatty’s first project for the direct let market comprises 2 blocks situated around a central courtyard; containing 149 self-contained studios and 387 bedrooms in cluster flats, complete with shared social spaces.

Our Solution

Our design team worked with Balfour Beatty Investments and the nominated architects for the project, Oberlanders; to put together the design scheme for the project. We also worked with the facilities management company for Foundry Courtyard, Fresh Student Living, for final approval on these designs.

Space-saving designs with cleverly integrated storage were key elements of the designs for both the studios and the cluster flats. Common room areas were furnished with soft seating elements including Skara and Jude lounge chairs, and Spark sofas.

Customer Feedback
