Specialising in the design and delivery of private and public sector construction and civil engineering projects, main contractor Winvic Construction Ltd has reached a multi-room milestone, completing 10,000 beds across Build to Rent, purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) and hotel projects.

The 10,000 bed milestone spans 29 projects and includes two recently handed over Build to Rent schemes – PLATFORM_’s Sheffield scheme and Corkfield in Edgbaston, for client Patrizia.

The six, seven and fourteen-storey steel-framed PLATFORM_ development includes 179 home in a mix of one-bedroom, 50 studios, 89 two-bedroom and 17 three-bedroom apartments, which all achieve EPC B rating.

Winvic also constructed and fitted out a 1,800 sq ft residents’ lounge, a 1,400 sq ft private dining room, a 1,250 sq ft gym, and landscaped roof terraces on three levels. Two commercial spaces totalling 7,650 sq ft can also be found on the ground floor.

“This significant milestone of 10,000 beds completed by Winvic across 29 PBSA, Build to Rent and hotel projects, plus our extraordinary growth in the sector over the last six years stands as a clear testament to our unwavering dedication to residential excellence and innovation.”

Winvic was also appointed by Patrizia to deliver 189 one-bedroom, 169 two-bedroom, and 17 three-bedroom apartments at the Corkfield Build to Rent scheme in Edgbaston. Corkfield’s concrete-framed blocks reach five, seven, eight, 13 and 18 storeys.

The scheme includes 6,100 sq ft shared amenity spaces, an undercroft car park for 111 vehicles and 214 cycles, a 3,000 sq ft rooftop terrace, a 21,700 sq ft landscaped podium deck, and five commercial units totalling 15,000 sq ft. 

Winvic also created the new entrance plaza and made improvements to the adjacent Edgbaston Stadium – home of Warwickshire County Cricket Club – alongside highways improvements to Edgbaston Road and Pershore Road.

The company also exceeded local authority S106 employment and skills requirements on both schemes.

Winvic’s Director Mark has also taken the company’s sector turnover from £30m in 2017 to £230m. The company‘s team has also expanded during this time, from 10 to 130 people. Although initially focused on PBSA, Winvic has capitalised on the Build to Rent market boom and now 70% of the company’s multi-room strategy focus is on Build to Rent schemes.

“Each of our projects are more than just buildings, they tell stories of precision, dedication, our commitment to safe and timely delivery and consideration to communities. The Winvic team members of course play the leading roles in these stories and we’re proud to have grown and nurtured a team that truly shares our vision and understands collaboration is crucial to success; from programme and operations to achieving sustainability goals to delivering social value activity that makes a difference to local people’s lives. I’d like to thank our team for their ongoing hard work and all our clients for putting their trust in Winvic to bring their residential visions to life.

“As we reflect on these achievements, we’re not just looking back; we’re looking forward with anticipation and excitement because with our drive, the best is yet to come.”
