A STOWMARKET-BASED building firm is celebrating the completion of a £7.5million college building complex in Cambridge.

Haymills built the five storey accommodation block and four-storey study facilities block at St Edmunds College over 70 weeks within an extremely confined site in the city's Mount Pleasant area.

The new buildings, designed by Bland, Brown & Cole Architects, include 71 student bedrooms, a library, meeting spaces, teaching rooms and associated facilities.

To add to the challenges builders faced, the new buildings were on a sloping site and included full and semi-basements.
