Belgrade Plaza is a new twenty storey student accommodation block situated at the heart of Coventry City centre.   Currently the tallest building in Coventry this £40m project includes commercial units at street level with 152 student bed spaces above.  

The project represents a true collaborative approach in all aspects.  Firstly between the developer Downing’s and Liverpool City Council as Building Control assessors (design stage) and then more recently during construction when site inspections were handled jointly between  Coventry City Council’s Building Control team (managed by Acivico Building Consultancy) and an Acivico surveyor (Keith McBride).     

The final phases of construction were understandably pressurized with all units fully let and required for occupation by September 2017.  All parties worked together to ensure that this deadline was achieved and that a new landmark building was opened on time and on budget.
