Waldeck has been appointed by Jackson and Jackson Developments Ltd to provide Structural Advisory Services on the ‘Viking House’ redevelopment project in Lincoln.

Given the green light by the City of Lincoln Council, the plans are to introduce a further 272 student bedrooms as part of the development.

The developer aims to meet some of the demand generated by the University of Lincoln’s ambitious expansion plans, which is anticipated to see the population of the University’s Brayford Campus increase by more than 3,300 students in the next seven years.

The University of Lincoln has fully supported the proposal of the development, which aims to make a significant improvement to the entrance of the city.

As we see the site developing, some interesting finds were discovered through the archaeology works, the team on site managed to avoid significant delay through open communications with the Councils and use of Archaeologists with a ‘can-do’ attitude.

The build programme, which is being delivered by local construction company LGG Projects, is expected to reach completion by September 2019.
