The iQ, Student Accomodation, Bristol

iQ Bristol offers state-of-the-art private student accommodation to those studying in Bristol. It offers an exceptional city-centre location, a choice of apartment types, social hubs and on-site facilities including a laundry and a building management office.

The building contains 361 bed spaces in 36 clusters, including 217 studio flats. With 11 floors of light gauge frame sitting upon a first floor podium, P.A.W. believes this is currently the UK's tallest completed light gauge steel frame building. The P.A.W. team completed the multi-level scheme in just 17 weeks.

Resident students at iQ Bristol regularly enjoy the development's modern amenities, in which they can relax and unwind with friends and fellow students. It is said that the scheme offers a 'brilliant social atmosphere'.

The expertise of P.A.W. Structures in delivering an 11-storey light gauge steel solution was a key component in the success of this landmark project. We were delighted by the practical and time-saving advantages of using a light gauge frame.
