The Walls – Southampton student ‘digs’ get a sensational modern look!

Students in Southampton have started moving into luxury new accommodation, converted from a previously dilapidated old 70s office block and into 79 self-contained studios, in the city’s Bernard Street.

We completed work on the 9 month, £4.2 million contract, named, ‘The Walls,’ for Eastbury Developments, on 15th September 2016.

The three storey building and basement was completed in two phases, with phase 1 comprising the design and conversion of the existing office block over the basement to the second floor in order to create 45 studio apartments.  This also included works to the existing façade.  Phase 2 comprised the design and vertical extension of a further two floors to provide an additional 34 studio apartments. Externally, the building benefitted from both soft and hard landscaping, with a reconfiguration of the carpark together with main incoming services.

The basement of The Walls has been developed to form social areas of an exceptional quality; including a cinema room, lounge, games room, laundry, and state of the art gym.

Greendale become members of Green PEA


Greendale has recently become members of the Green PEA program. The Green Positive Environmental Action (PEA) is an innovative energy and cost saving certification scheme that offers business members a free energy usage survey and provides recommendations for energy saving measures.

The Green PEA scheme is managed by a team of Poole–based businessmen and women, who all share the same passion and commitment to drive down carbon emissions and help businesses reduce their energy costs.

The Green PEA CIC is responsible for running the Poole Green PEA scheme, for providing support to other licensed Green PEA schemes and for managing and protecting the Green PEA brand. As a CIC it is a non-profit making organisation, with any surplus money re-invested into the scheme or the local economy.


Greendale director, Rob Hooker, said: “Greendale are very pleased to be involved with the Green Pea Scheme. Already we are finding useful practical information and links to the “Green” supply chain which will make important improvements on our energy usage and the environment, both at Head Office and on our sites.”
