MOST of a four-storey office building has been converted into student digs.

The top three floors of 26 Market Place, Durham, were formerly offices.

They are now a five-bedroom student house.

The ground floor remains in business use.

The conversion was managed by Naylors Chartered Surveyors.

Building surveyor Simon Craigs said: “We were initially brought in to advise the client on the feasibility of such a conversion.

“Our findings favour the conversion and with high demand for student accommodation in central Durham the project proved to be a great success.”

The accommodation is now fully occupied.
