Offsite Solutions has won a £1.6 million contract to provide bathroom pods for a new student accommodation development in Swansea.

Crown Place will represent Offsite's sixth and largest student accommodation scheme and brings the total value of its projects to £6.8 million.

The Highbridge based firm will manufacture 645-bathroom pods at its factory, which will be fitted into ensuite bathrooms in the nine-storey development.

Commenting on the development, Alan Pulver, director of Crown Student Living, said: "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."

"We like dealing with Offsite Solutions and would never consider traditional bathroom construction for any of our schemes."
