The property is named after Richard Morriss Woodhead, co-founder of the bike workshop which later became the Raleigh Cycle Company, which started in the city in 1885. Morriss House will consist of 661 cluster flats with ensuite bathrooms and 39 studio apartments.
In line with Unite Students’ sustainability strategy, Adrian Muir, Unite Students project manager, said the development would utilise all available roof space to install photovoltaic cells and with no gas supply to the property, air source heat pumps would be introduced for the hot water provision.
