YPG DEVELOPMENTS: PEMBROKE STUDIOS, LIVERPOOL
YPG is a regeneration Company who develop student accommodation, residential accommodations and new-builds such as houses and apartments. Advantage were their warranty providers for Pembroke studios, a student accommodation based in central Liverpool – the 10-month project was completed in October last year. With luxury living quarters and hi-spec on-site communal amenities, Pembroke Studios is the ideal accommodation for those studying in Liverpool. The development consists of 94 new build self-contained studios in a 6-storey complex located in an enviable position in the heart of the learning centre of Liverpool.
Andy Grabe, Construction Director at YPG Developments:
“Advantage were reliable and professional in their approach. One of the qualities which stood out the most with Advantage is that they were consistently proactive, which is what you need from a Structural Defects Insurance Company when working with deadlines. The staff at Advantage are very user-friendly – they worked well with the site manager’s and we had a good relationship throughout the process. They also provided an excellent service in terms of a one to one service with the site managers. As property developers, we have dealt with many other warranty providers in the past and you often get the feeling that they aren’t on your side – this is where Advantage differ, I have already awarded them with other contracts since working with them and will continue to do so!”
YPG developments have since awarded Advantage with other developments, such as Clee Meadows development in Grimsby, which is a 178 private residential development envisaged as a new and sustainable community enjoying a high quality environment and public realm. Advantage are also the chosen Warranty providers for Kings Dock Mill in Liverpool L1, a luxury student living development which is a short walk away from the Liverpool One shopping centre.
David Sumner, Advantage commented:
“Due to the start date of the students YPG were on a tight schedule. At Advantage we face any challenges or tight deadlines that we may face during a project head-on, thus we were able to overcome the unique challenges we faced during the project. Our processes include ensuring that a dedicated surveyor visits the site at keys stages to ensure all agreed objectives are being met. We look forward to working on more projects with Andy and the team!”
