Liverpool-based Downing Construction will work on two major schemes in Manchester and London with a combined worth of more than £140m.
In Manchester, the construction firm will deliver a 800-plus bed student scheme located at River Street next to the Mancunian Way.
While in London, Downing Construction will work on a mixed-use student development worth over £90m in London’s Vauxhall.
The scheme incorporates 841 student bedrooms within a 36-storey building alongside 40,000 sq ft of commercial space.
Ian Orton, managing director at Downing Construction, said: “This current round of contract wins will take our workflow through into 2021 on secured contracts – putting the business in an extremely good position to continue to grow and explore high-profile projects across the UK.
“Our turnover for the 2018/2019 financial year is set to top the £100m mark for the first time. This marks a key milestone for Downing Construction and one we look forward to building on over the coming years.
“We’ve established a core team that has grown in recent years in anticipation of this expected growth, and we continue to actively recruit at all levels.”
