The Project

Offsite Solutions was awarded a £1.6m contract for Crown Student Living. Crown Place in Swansea was Offsite Solutions’ sixth and largest student accommodation scheme for the developer and brings the total value of its projects for Crown Student Living to £6.8 million.

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.

The Bathroom Pod Solution

Offsite Solutions has manufactured 645 GRP composite bathroom pods working with Midas who are main contractor for the £40m scheme on Swansea’s waterfront. All the bedrooms in the nine-storey development will be ensuite and furnished to a high standard.

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 Customer Perspective

Alan Pulver, Director, Crown Student Living:

“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.”

“This use of offsite construction allows us to have every ensuite built to the same exacting quality standards. It also gives us the benefit of a much shorter programme than in-situ bathroom construction. There is no assembly on site, only M&E connections which are extremely efficient and fast. We like dealing with Offsite Solutions and would never consider traditional bathroom construction for any of our schemes.”

Offsite Solutions offers a comprehensive range of high-quality bathroom pods for student accommodation and has unparalleled experience in design, manufacture and supply for this sector. As the UK’s leading manufacturer, it can provide bathrooms to suit all budgets, from cost-effective GRP composite pods, to premium steel-framed porcelain-tiled pods.
