Opal One Student Accommodation







Opal One Student Accommodation


Opal Property Group



We worked with Opal Property Group to create a high quality residential development situated in the prime city centre location adjacent to George Street Bridge and Usk Way.


The new residence embodies student safety and security, and is a prominent, landmark structure in the Old Dock area of Newport. Accommodation ranges from 4 to 6 bedroom apartments with their own living and dining spaces.


A sustainable approach was adopted throughout, with consideration being given to the external fabric, natural ventilation and the inclusion of Biomass boilers. As such, the building achieved a BREEAM Very Good rating. We also provided interior design services for the project.
