|Client||Location||Sector||Contract Value||Main Contractor|
|Fresh Living||Exeter||Student Accommodation||£7.50 million||Henry W Pollard & Sons|
Sigmat light gauge steel frame specialists have completed another transforming student accommodation scheme in Queen’s Street, Exeter.
Working with main contractors Henry W Pollard & Sons, Sigmat’s light gauge steel frame has helped create Exeter’s newest student accommodation being let by Fresh Living.
Addressing the severe shortage of university accommodation spaces in the city, Queen’s Street Studios is another example of the high specification and lifestyle orientated projects that light gauge steel framing can facilitate. Combining both high specification en-suite studios with large common areas, Sigmat was able to deliver a comprehensive programme in a timely and efficient way.
“Offsite construction ensures precision components, higher quality systems and accurate timescales to work to. We planned from the design stage for the date when the light gauge steel frame would arrive on site, with our team taking care of the logistics and on-site installation as well as the manufacturing of the sections.
