Rushmoor Engineering has been engaged by architects, developers and timber frame manufacturers to provide structural calculations and designs of many student accommodation buildings.
Student accommodation is generally in modular buildings consisting of repetitive units in large blocks. We have found that timber frame is ideal for such structures allowing efficient and economical buildings. The lightweight structure and speed of erection are just two of the many benefits of timber frame.
We have recently undertaken much development work in modular construction using volumetric timber frame bedroom pods that are supplied pre-fabricated, with insulation, cladding, glazing and services fitted within the walls, greatly accelerating construction times.
