Stage two of Albany’s affordable student accommodation development is set to kick-off, providing a much-needed boost to the local construction industry.

Albany-based Wauters Enterprises has won the tender to build the 40-bed accommodation facility following a tender process led by project proponents Advance Housing.

In preparation for the new student accommodation, the Albany headmaster’s house and the former school buildings have been refurbished.

The new accommodation will be built in the parking areas behind the existing buildings, preserving the heritage elements of the site.

Stage 2 follows the completion and commissioning of Stage 1 near the UWA Albany Centre in Stirling Terrace, including self-contained units providing accommodation for up to 20 undergraduate and post-graduate tertiary students.
