Crown Place in Swansea will be Offsite Solutions’ sixth and largest student accommodation scheme for the developer and brings the total value of its projects for Crown Student Living to £6.8m
Designed by ECE Westworks, Crown Place will have shower rooms with a tile-effect wall finish, a large mirror, wall cabinet, contemporary dark bamboo-style flooring, and specially-designed access for ease of maintenance.
The ensuite shower pods have been designed by Offsite Solutions in collaboration with Crown Student Living. The waterside scheme will have an extensive range of communal facilities including an on-site gym, cinema, hotel-style lounges and 1,000sqft of commercial space.
The Swansea project awarded to Offsite Solutions follows its earlier student schemes for Crown Student Living in the university cities of Bristol, Reading, Cardiff, Portsmouth and most recently Norwich, which is nearing completion.
Options include steel-framed pods with porcelain-tiled finishes for high-end apartments and hotels; robust and low maintenance GRP composite pods for student accommodation, care homes, social housing and healthcare; hybrid pods for specialist projects, and award-winning demountable GRP pods for ease of installation in refurbishment schemes.
Alan Pulver, Director of Crown Student Living commented: “Our aim is to create an exceptional student experience which is reflected in our approach to bathroom construction. The quality of the ensuite shower rooms is definitely a significant factor in students’ choice of accommodation – which can be their home for up to three years.
“We have specified Offsite Solutions’ bathroom pods from our very first development – a refurbishment and conversion project in Bristol – and for every scheme after that. We have established a very good and positive working relationship with their team.”
