“The development work on the building will provide college students with modern, safe and secure accommodation to help them settle in Hartlepool, while also securing the future of Titan House. As well as students being able to access quality accommodation right in the town centre, local businesses will also benefit from the increased number of residents in the area, as they may make use of the wide range of services including the Middleton Grange Shopping Centre, local cafes, bars and other leisure facilities.”



Colette McKune
Group Deputy Chief Executive

“Forrest has experience of carrying out such work to high rise blocks and presented a very comprehensive package with great focus on customer liaison which is a crucial aspect of our work. We are looking forward to working with them as we continue our investment programme to create sustainable homes and inspirational communities that people are proud of.”
