The new, three-storey accommodation block will form the second phase of The Homes Partnership’s King Square Studios scheme in Bristol city centre, close to Bristol University. The project will mark the roll out of the developer’s ‘twodio’ student living concept, whereby each pair of en-suite study bedrooms adjoins a shared kitchen, creating a ‘twodio’ unit.

The 35-week construction programme sees ISG erect a timber frame building on the former car park site, with cladding and render elements to its façade. For speed and quality, the design incorporates prefabricated bathroom pods, which will be delivered to site on a ‘just in time’ basis and craned into position.
