Roompod Solution for Stylish Student AccommodationApril 10, 2012
Elements Europe has provided stylish student accommodation in collaboration with main contractor Multibuild, for a new-build at Bishopsgate in the heart of Birmingham.
The West Midlands based modular construction company has manufactured and supplied a total of 175 modules, consisting of 147 bedrooms and associated cleaning rooms, plant rooms, stair cores, floor, ceiling and corridor cassettes- for the project.
Elements Europe also sourced and managed the procurement of a modular pre-cast concrete lift shaft for the 5-storey scheme.
All of the bedrooms have been designed in a contemporary way, offering high quality student accommodation with en-suite bathrooms, kitchenettes with breakfast bars and sensor-controlled ventilation systems to improve the building’s energy efficiency.
The rooms were manufactured over a factory period of seven weeks and on-site installation took just 8 weeks.
Elements Europe’s Kevin Arthur comments: “Modular construction offers many key advantages including a quicker build programme and improved quality of finish as the rooms are constructed in a quality controlled manufacturing environment. We take pride in working to international quality standards and in ways that limit our environmental impact and energy use.”
Elements Europe is part of the Pickstock Group of Companies covering construction services to food.
