Westridge Construction commences Alumno’s Brighton project

Green light to begin work on a new student residence project in the Falmer district of Brighton and Hove

by Georgina Johnston 22 December 2020

The new four storey Falmer Cottages student residence is being built in association with the British and Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM), Europe’s largest and leading provider of music education.

The development will be located close to BIMM’s Brighton campus and adjacent to Falmer train station, making it also easily accessible to students from the University of Sussex and the University of Brighton.

Falmer Cottages will accommodate 71 students across 55 ensuite and 16 studio rooms. A large communal area will also be located on the ground floor together with laundry facilities, reception and main entrance. Completion is scheduled for Summer 2021. 

In line with its policy of benefiting the local communities adjacent to its projects and supporting the arts, Alumno will be commissioning a bespoke permanent art installation for the exterior of the development.
