Colchester Student Accommodation Update

Despite an unsettled start to 2014, Colchester’s student accommodation scheme remains on schedule!


The adverse weather conditions at the start of this year has caused serious problems on-site in Colchester.  The tower crane has been winded off numerous times and the wet conditions have created ground remediation delays.  Despite the conditions, the team have strived to ensure that the critical path remained on schedule. This determination meant that as planned, on the 14th of February a key milestone was hit, with the student Room Pods arriving on site from Elements Europe, the off-site modular construction company within The Pickstock Group.


Providing a turnkey solution to projects such as this is what The Pickstock Group do best. Ensuring that the schedule is fully integrated both on the ground and in the factory at Elements Europe.


Meanwhile, the show flats on-site remains busy with students viewing and now reserving their rooms.
