Colchester Phase 2 Sees Module Install Commence

Installation of room modules has commenced on Phase 2 of the Colchester student accommodation scheme.

An additional 398 student rooms will be installed into the second phase as well as associated kitchen modules, plant rooms, corridor cassettes and stair cores.

Elements Europe will complete manufacture of all room modules by the 4th May. The Pickstock Construction team on-site are now working towards all 398 modules being in position by the end of May.

Brickwork teams are working at podium level and will commence the envelope of the building by block once all modules are in position.

The Colchester student accommodation scheme welcomed 381 students into Phase 1 in September last year. Since then Phase 2 has become the focal point to open in time for this September’s intake of students.

Rooms in Phase 2 will see a different style to the first phase thanks to The Pickstock Group’s Interior Designer Ilaria Revello.

“The furniture and colours I have utilised have a young and vibrant feel, and each block of accommodation is unique in style.” Ilaria commented.

“The main aim was to create the right environment for students, modern yet homely.”
