Student Accommodation, Bath – Berkeley Homes

Client: Berkeley Group

Project: Green Park House, Green Park Road, Bath, Somerset.

Date: June 2015

Contract: The Commercial team at Berkeley Homes sought the services of ASW Scaffolding Ltd during the early stages of this project.  Following a period of design and detailed planning with the production team, ASW Scaffolding were able to provide guidance and scaffolding services to assist in the completion of this, much needed, student accommodation.

The Challenge: The build was unusual in that the accommodation consisted of pre-constructed Room Modules that were lifted into place using a tower crane, the scaffold was subsequently adapted to allow the façade to be constructed.  In total there were over 600 room modules installed over five stories.

The Result: The completed development has provided much needed accommodation for students attending Bath Spa University.  The building has been finished to very high standard, it offers a laundry room, bicycle storage facilities, student common room and a study/meeting place.  

ASW Ltd were very pleased to be part of the team creating the development, it was interesting to see an alternative method of construction and be on site to follow the buildings progress through to completion.

"ASW Ltd have provided efficient access solutions for us at Berkeley Homes for over 10 years now.  I have always found Steve and his team to be accommodating and very committed, they have worked on numerous projects for us and have proven to be both reliable and conscientious. Their commitment to Health and Safety is evident and their approach to problem-solving has been invaluable."
