Hi-fi Shop to Make Way for Students
24th Apr 2019
Chinese based CIMC Modular Building Systems Holding Co (CIMC MBS) has hailed the recent opening of Park View Student Village as being the largest of its kind in the country.
The Chinese manufacturer specialises in modular building and regards the recent opening of six student accommodation blocks at Newcastle University as the largest scheme of its kind.
Galliford Try, general contractor on the project, said it took two years to build the new accommodation, whilst using traditional methods would have taken more than three years.
CIMC said its technique allowed more than 90% of the buildings to be finished in a factory, reducing build time and waste.
The build cost £75 million, making it the university's largest investment project.
Commenting on the scheme, Paul Milburn, project manager of Galliford Try, said: "It would have taken three years minimum using traditional techniques. But using the modular services provided by CIMC MBS, the construction company was on site for a total of 110 weeks, a significant reduction in the construction period."
CIMC has completed similar developments in the US, where it delivered a modular student accommodation building at the University of California.
