About this event

The Jackson and Jackson Developments project was opened on 2 September 2015 one year after signing the construction contract with Kier Construction and completed in time for the arrival of the next University of Lincoln cohort.

It has been built in response to demand from increasing student numbers and reducing the impact of students living in more established residential areas of Lincoln by freeing up family homes.

Due to high costs the project was initially delayed and innovative techniques were utilised to ensure the project would be a success.

The eight storey building contains around 990 tonnes of steel, 520 bathrooms, 386 kitchens and 68 kilowatts of solar power with retail spaces on the ground floor.
