Thurston Building Systems offer 160 bedroom modular halls of residence - ready for September 2010

Thurston Building Systems have unveiled a unique opportunity for a university or higher education college to add 160 en-suite bedrooms to their halls of residence portfolio ready for the new academic year.

The bedrooms, which are part way through construction, will be completed to a hotel quality finish and will include a bed, wardrobe and desk. Due to the flexibility of modular building, the ground space needed for the final construction is extremely flexible and a range of external finishes can be applied to comply with planning conditions and integrate with the environment.

Jonathan Petch, Chief Executive of Thurston Building Systems, said:
“Such units are built to order and have only become available due to planning delays with another project, so this is a fabulous opportunity for higher education institutions. They now have the opportunity to purchase a project which can be completed to an extremely high specification in a short space of time. Thurston buildings have the finish of traditional buildings but the advantage of off-site construction – a great combination for institutions looking for quality, value and speed.”

Thurston construct units in a closed environment unaffected by weather and can arrange the units of a number of different configurations to fit the site. They can be transported anywhere in the UK.

The rooms are built with three external walls and an independent roof and floor ensuring that they are extremely robust, and they offer residents greater separation than traditional builds.
