Weather conditions in the UK over the past week have caused disruptions to airports, traffic networks, and according to economists the construction industry.
Elements Europe, modular manufacturers, has continued to install the bedroom pods at the University of Chester for the main contractor Morgan Sindall.
“Modern methods of construction offer many advantages compared to traditional construction methods, one of the most advantageous is the fact that we can continue to manufacture and install during the bad weather” says Stuart Johnstone, Commercial Director at Elements Europe.
“The construction industry always suffers during severe weather conditions, projects more often than not get delayed but with modular construction, we can continue at the same rate as usual” adds Mr Johnstone.
The Chester University project will see Elements Europe manufacture and install 224 studio student bedroom pods all of which will feature kitchenettes and en-suite facilities. The student accommodation will be open in time for the 2013 academic term.
