Plymouth Scheme Progresses to Module Install Stage
Pickstock Construction has received delivery of the first Room Modules to its student accommodation scheme in Plymouth’s City centre.
The site will provide Plymouth students with state of the art accommodation comprising of two tower blocks one standing at 13 storeys and the other at 10. Its sister company Elements Europe is providing a modular solution to the scheme, manufacturing 349 Room Modules which will be installed into the 13 storey tower block with the adjacent 10 storey facility being built traditionally by Pickstock Construction. 60 Bathroom Pods will however be manufactured and installed into this block, eliminating major M&E works.
The modules will be delivered direct from Elements Europe’s production facility in Telford to site in Plymouth where they will be installed upon arrival over a three month period using one of the two tower cranes on-site.
Phil Darlington of Pickstock Construction commented “Seeing the modules arrive on-site marks the next stage in the development where we will quickly see the building form.”
“Pickstock Construction and Elements Europe’s experience in working together will ensure that the modules are installed in a fast and efficient manner” he added.
Pickstock Construction is a specialist modular contractor. Since its first modular hotel project over ten years ago, its expertise has grown to deliver multi million pound modular developments to hotels, student accommodation schemes and healthcare developments.
The accommodation will offer students a choice of studio and en-suite rooms. Elements Europe has also manufactured kitchen modules for students occupying cluster flats.
The modules have been designed by The Pickstock Group and offer the latest contemporary student accommodation with space and functionality in mind.
Jefferson Sheard Architects has published its annual 16/17 report which reflects on the past 12 months progression in sectors such as student accommodation and the public sector, as well as highlighting key projects of significance.
Pickstock Construction has completed install of all 60 Bathroom Pods into Block B at Crescent Point Student Accommodation scheme in Plymouth. The shape of Block B dictated that Pickstock Construction would build it traditionally
