Greystar development is being built by Tide Construction and Vision Modular Systems.
Construction work has kicked off on building modular
student accommodation at the Savoy cinema site in west London.
Being developed by US build-to-rent investor Greystar, building work is being carried out by Tide Construction and Vision Modular Systems
The firms are manufacturing the modules
at their factory in Bedford, transporting them to Acton and then installing them on site.
Designed by HTA Design, the student homes will be made up of 338 modules
in total and operated by Chapter, Greystar’s student accommodation brand. The Savoy development is the US firm’s ninth student scheme in London.
At seven storeys high, the development will feature 306 studio apartments, plus communal spaces including a café, student lounge, arcade and gym.
Troy Tomasik, managing director, Investments at Greystar, said: “Savoy Circus is a great example of what modular construction
can achieve – a high quality product delivered at speed.”
Last month Greystar signed a deal with Telford Homes to construct nearly 900 rented homes in Nine Elms, Battersea.
