Student Accommodation

Student Accommodation

Maximising Asset Value with PBSA

A post-pandemic world demands innovative residential solutions that speak to the concerns and challenges facing students today. We develop purpose-built, cost-effective accommodation designed for simple operator management, whilst creating a home-from-home for students.


We understand the importance of delivery to project timelines to align with the student rental calendar. Working proactively with our clients, we identify effective solutions to the problems each development faces, keeping project on-track supporting 'heads on beds' investor requirements.

Our engagement extends to client pre-sales requirements ensuring we create effective marketing suites and showflats for off-plan sales and early lets.


We combine best-in-class market knowledge, site-specific research and innovative design to create impactful, multi-purpose spaces that are cost-effective and simple to manage and operate. Prioritising quality, affordability and usability, we oversee every step of the process, from the big picture to the smallest detail.

From high-density, low-cost accommodation, that doesn’t feel cramped, to luxurious add-ons to attractive international students, we excel in meeting complex project requirements.

Our extensive sector experience means we continue to innovate design throughout the development process so that the finish accommodation meets the fast evolving requirements of students and clients.


As a responsible construction partner, we are experts at working in live environments. Our Site Logistics expertise proactively manages site operations and works with sustainability in mind. We minimise noise, air pollution and disruption by incorporating off-site manufacturing and streamlining deliveries our operations and from our supply chain.


PBSA has evolved significantly in the past 20 years with covid creating a further step change in investor and student requirements. Our team works with clients to create community spaces that go beyond a shared kitchen or living area. Communal study and multi-use spaces help create building communities that students want to be part of whilst also supporting investor returns.

High levels of robust connectivity are essential and are a key part of the design process. As is the need to support increasing levels of blended learning as university teaching methods evolve.


Our Leadership and Project Delivery teams combine extensive PBSA experience with deep sector knowledge. We utilise this experience on each project to simplify the development process for clients, improve the usability for building operators and increase the student satisfaction of the finished product.
