The Client

Elements Europe, working in collaboration with the main contractor McLaren Construction, successfully manufactured and installed 184 Bathroom Pods for a new student accommodation scheme in Paris Gardens, London. This scheme was a joint venture for McLaren Property and Victoria Hall.

This development is an addition to the growing number of student accommodation schemes Elements Europe has both manufactured and installed.

Project Description: 184 Bathroom Pods

The project saw Elements Europe provide 184 Bathroom Pods, using the SoloPod system, which were installed horizontally off a platform into the concrete frame building.

The site posed logistical challenges due to its Central London location and thus a great deal of planning went into the delivery of the Pods to site. This included a risk assessment and carefully controlled operational procedures to ensure that the lift of the Pods was conducted safely.

The student accommodation was completed in time for the start of a new academic year.
