David Barkley, contract manager for Glendale, comments: “We are looking forward to working with the University of Bradford maintaining The Green to an exceptional standard not only for the students who live there but also to ensure the site is in a great condition for future students.
“We have to be very aware of the noise restrictions imposed on the student village and we are working with the university to plan our work schedule appropriately to take into account student study times and exam periods.”
