Pinewood Structures were selected to deliver the timber frame for this 450 bed space student accommodation complex in Huddersfield, a combination of three and four storey buildings alongside the canal and clad in a local stone.

Pinewood Structures completed the timber frame works in 20 weeks which allowed the contractor to meet the stringent dates to allow the new student intake to take possession for the new term.

One of the benefits of using timber frame within construction is that it enables you to get the structure water tight much earlier, making the development less weather dependent. 

  • Typically 30% quicker than traditional methods of construction.
  • Brick work removed from critical path to enable works to proceed internally sooner.
  • Non weather dependent, making planning more predictable.
  • Reduced drying out time.
