Student Accommodation

Thurso Street, Glasgow

Thurso Street offers a range of modern and stylish studios and en-suite rooms for students in Glasgow. The brand new four-block accommodation is situated in Glasgow’s West End.

P.A.W. Structures had to respond to difficult site conditions including sloping ground levels and a constricted urban site. This meant meticulous planning had to go into the frame design and its assembly on site.

Despite these challenges, P.A.W. was able to deliver an accelerated programme to meet a tight 20-week deadline. The project had an immovable deadline and was completed on time in September 2011 so that students could be admitted at the beginning of the 2011-12 academic year.

Our established relationship with P.A.W. Structures meant we could put an accelerated programme in place and we had every confidence in them to install the frame within the 20 week timeline. The P.A.W. team overcame problems with ground levels and were able to deliver a quality solution on time.
