Pinewood Structures Ltd were delighted to be selected to supply timber frame for this large purpose-built self-catered student accommodation complex, part of Preston University, only a short walk away from the campus. Following demolition of the existing University annex buildings, work commenced on the timber frame construction of the 424 bedroom student accommodation. The development comprised of 11 distinctive blocks with a total of 86 student flats and the £0.8m timber frame project was developed to provide each bedroom with an en-suite, communal open plan kitchen and lounge in every flat.

Pinewood Structures had to design, supply and erect a timber frame structure which fitted with the architect’s contemporary design, created to make maximum use of the site’s sloping nature. Despite the unique, individually designed and crafted blocks, Pinewood Structures completed the timber frame construction in 18 weeks by working closely to the program with the contractor. This greatly benefited the project for it allowed the follow on trades to complete their works to ensure the building completion date for the student intake date was achieved.

  • Consistent approach to detailing meant individual blocks could be easily built in timber frame 
  • Ability to work closely with the contractor
  • Non-weather dependent
