Modular 589-bed student build takes shape in Glasgow’s West End
May 19 2017
Construction is now 80% complete on the true Student build at Kelvinhaugh Street, Finnieston, which is being pieced together by China-based off-site modular construction specialists CIMC.
True Student MD Marc Carter commented: “The site is coming along well and there are parts that are ready to move into. The construction process has been very smooth and we believe we’re onto a winning formula with the material and design partners we have selected. For now this will remain our primary and preferred method of building.”
Designed by KKA Architects using modular single-occupancy rooms and shared apartments with ensuite bedrooms with on-site amenities including a slide, festival space, cinema, library, café and gym.
