Student accommodation takes shape
Sladen Estates and Peveril Securities have joined forces to develop the former B&Q site appointing Church Lukas as Architects and Bowmer and Kirkland as Main Contractor who in turn appointed F P McCann as their precast concrete contractor.
With a sub-contract value in excess of £1.4 million PCE Ltd are responsible for the installation of precast concrete walls, floors, stairs and landings, as well as the bathroom pods and various structural steel components.
80 individual flats
Whilst on site PCE will erect over 2,990 precast concrete elements manufactured by F P McCann, which will form the generally 3 storey high 6 blocks of student accommodation containing 80 individual flats for multi-occupancy and 103 separate studio rooms as well associated communal facilities including a gym, movie room, quiet spaces, two retail units.
The project will be completed in time for students to take up residence in September 2017.
