Brandauer Student Village

Rame Consulting Limited is currently appointed to act as Project Manager for the development of Brandauer Student Village located in Birmingham. The scheme will be built on what was formerly the old Brandauer Works factory – a Grade II listed pen factory that has been derelict since 2000. The scheme aims to be opened for the start of the 2022 academic year.

The scheme provides 335 units comprising 180 studio apartments and 156 bedroom clusters.

The scheme also benefits from many high quality amenity spaces, including a dining area and party room, a cinema space, a gym, and study rooms.

Students can also benefit from outdoor spaces such as a central courtyard and a mix of green space and external dining.

Rame led the technical team through pre purchase due diligence which resulted in proposed amendments to the original permitted scheme. The procurement system selected recognises the challenges of working with a heritage asset as well as the delivery of new sections of the development within reasonably constrained site.
