HG Construction named as contractor on 706-bed PBSA scheme

HG Construction has been named as the main contractor on a new purpose-built student accommodation scheme for Studio Hive in Bristol.

Silverthorne Lane Plot 6 will comprise 706 student rooms including cluster bedrooms and studio rooms along with amenity spaces.

The development will form an important part of the regeneration of land off Silverthorne Lane, in Bristol’s Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone (TQEZ), which will see c£375m being invested into residential, student accommodation and commercial developments, as well as a new comprehensive school.

The new student accommodation scheme is split over four blocks ranging from five to 15 storeys high, with blocks being interconnected in pairs.

A landscaped external courtyard at the centre of the buildings will provide an important meeting place for students, with sports and games facilities along with quieter areas for relaxation.

The scheme is expected to complete in 2026. 

Adam Quinn, CEO at HG Construction said: “We are delighted to be involved in the regeneration of the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.

“This is our first scheme for Studio Hive and it’s a pleasure to be working in partnership with them on this landmark PBSA development.

“As our first scheme in Bristol, we’re looking forward to getting to know the local area and will maximise opportunities for local employment and community engagement throughout the construction of this project.”

Jason Collard, managing director at Studio HIVE Ltd, said: “We have been involved in the Silverthorne Lane Masterplan for a number of years and it is now very exciting to have HG Construction on board and delivering a great new piece of regeneration for this part of Bristol.

“Our partners Far East Orchard, Woh Hup and Atlas Land are equally excited about this new PBSA scheme which is acting as a catalyst for private investment in the TQEZ.”
