On Thursday, McAleer & Rushe marked an important milestone in the construction of a 759-unit student accommodation scheme which it is building for Unite, at Angel Lane in Stratford.

Peter Hornby, Unite Construction Director, joined McAleer & Rushe Chairman, Seamus McAleer, and many members of the design and build team, for the topping out of the 8-14 storey East London scheme.

The HCD Group-designed project is very conveniently located close to Stratford Station and boasts fantastic views across London. The majority of bedrooms are provided as cluster flats of single en-suite rooms with shared kitchens, and there are also a number of self-contained studio rooms on each floor level. It also includes 900m2 of commercial space on the ground floor.

Peter Hornby said:

“I am delighted to be able to mark the progress that has been made on this challenging scheme. I have particularly appreciated the very collaborative approach adopted by McAleer & Rushe and I look forward to working together on further projects. We feel very comfortable with this excellent design and build team.”

McAleer & Rushe Business Development Director, James Hicken said:

“This project is a fantastic showcase for us and I’d like to pay tribute to everybody involved with the project. McAleer & Rushe is proud of its ethos of being a safe pair of hands and a friendly face. With each job we promise to deliver value, on time, and to a great quality standard.”

The McAleer & Rushe Project Director leading on the £30m Angel Lane contract is Dominic Trainor.
