DEVELOPMENT | Student Accommodation

The Maltings student accommodation scheme located on King Edwards Quay, Colchester is the largest student accommodation scheme the group has delivered to date. This student development comprises 779 rooms across eight floors and offers seven types of student accommodation.

One bed flats, studio apartments and en-suite cluster rooms were delivered using Elements Europe’s full volumetric room module system. The additional 255 room modules were for shared kitchen facilities for students and plant rooms.

The scheme was delivered by The Pickstock Group as a turn-key solution with its sister company Pickstock Construction acting as the main contractor to complete the traditional construction works.

The construction delivery of the project was achieved in two phases, both phases being open in time for a September intake.

The scheme offers modern, high quality accommodation within a short walking distance to Colchester’s Essex University.
