Pickstock Construction and sister company Elements Europe will deliver for the group, a brand new student accommodation scheme in Plymouth.
Pickstock Construction will build two blocks of student accommodation on land in Plymouth’s city centre that was once home to redundant and unattractive garages. The first building, 13 storeys high and the second, 10 storeys high.
Jefferson Sheard’s team of architects has worked hard to ensure the design is in line with the local vernacular. The design features massing which is stepped with the apex of the southern elevation and the upper storeys set back from the main façade and glazed so to soften the scale of the building. Limestone will also be sourced locally for the ground floor façade.
Pickstock Construction’s sister company Elements Europe will provide a modular solution to both blocks of accommodation. For Block A, the taller of the two buildings, it will manufacture Room Modules and kitchen modules.
Pickstock Construction will build Block B traditionally, featuring 60 rooms. Elements Europe will manufacture 60 Bathroom Pods for this part of the development.
The accommodation is set to open in time for the September 2017 intake of students with Mears Group being the student operators.
