Like the Hilton Garden Inn at the Airport, these rooms are going to be Chinese factory made, assembled in 3 weeks and shipped here aren't they. This will actually fly right up in amongst the steel & brickwork from Clegg.

There's the link to the Hilton Garden Inn thread with a video of the procedures & stuff
Following up on this, the Glasgow student accommodation is also under the True branding, which this'll be, sounds good.

The views of the demolition / site clearance from the no 45 bus on Pershore Street.

Clegg Construction



The back of the old building on Upper Dean Street is being demolished (the temporary modern bit added back when Travelodge went up)



Only half of Chicken.com gone!

You have to go back to 2010 when they protected this old building on Upper Dean Street next to the Travelodge.



Part of this wall built in 2010 is now being demolished!

Regarding only demolishing half of the old chicken place, i suppose they will need to do the same as they did at the Beorma Quarter and close the road in order to demolish the rest ??

This is going to be so interesting to watch considering its a modular build.

This is the new Glasgow True Student block, built the same way, it looks absolutely quality, It'll be a huge hit with the Chinese students considering the area.



This is how the student space will look, this will be in the building retained on Upper Dean Street, look at that slide



Architects: KKA http://www.kkaarchitecture.co.uk/#de...er-dean-street

Also a snippet from Ogilvie Construction when the Glasgow block was being built. Gives a little insight as to what we could see.

Quote:
Military precision

Getting the modules from the factory in China to their place in the structure is like a military operation, Carter says. The ship arrives from China at Southampton, on England’s south coast. Because the modules are larger than a shipping container, they are last in, and first out. Then they are loaded onto lorries and trucked north approximately 425 miles to Glasgow. There, a 500-tonne mobile crane lifts them into place.

“For about nine weeks we had eight to 10 units arriving every day,” Carter said. “Managing that process is pretty military in terms of organisation. With the size and weight of the module the risk is always in the lifting, so you don’t want to do it too many times. Off the ship onto the lorry, off the lorry into place, is the preferred way. It’s a sight to behold.”

True Glasgow West End will be seven storeys in height, although the system allows up to 15 storeys.

The company has immediate plans for two more student developments in the UK using modular.

“We just bought another site in Glasgow, where we hope to stack to 11 storeys,” Carter said.

Meanwhile, work on another site in Birmingham, nine storeys in height, begins in April.
