Student Accommodation

Frameclad were chosen by the main contractor to provide light steel frame solutions for the Goods Corner development in Edinburgh. Located in a popular and prominent part of the city, Goods Corner comprised three blocks of high-quality student apartments. Frameclad provided the steel infill system and roof for the project, delivering on time and to budget.

Goods Corner is a conveniently situated development of high-quality, sophisticated studios for student accommodation. Located in the city of Edinburgh, abundant with rich architectural heritage, it was very important to the client that due care and attention be paid to ensuring the building was in keeping with the aesthetic of the local area.

Waitrose

This uniquely shaped building designed by B&R Architects is on the site of the former Bellerby Theatre in Guildford. Main Contractor Bowmer & Kirkland were tasked with building a new Waitrose food store on the ground floor with 30 apartments and 18 affordable homes on the tapering floors above. Several of these enjoyed roof gardens which are sheltered by high parapet walls constructed from Frameclad SFS.
