Quality student accommodation in the heart of Colchester

The Pickstock Group developed The Maltings as part of a Joint Venture project with funding partners Longbow & RBS. Upon completion, the asset was held for 2 years until stabilisation.

The Maltings is a 779 bed student accommodation scheme with ground floor retail (9,061sq.ft) and ancillary space.

The Pickstock Group provided a turnkey solution for the project utilising sister company Pickstock Construction for the traditional build and Elements Europe’s its off-site manufacturing business for the modular solution. The project was phased with Phase 1 opening in time for September 2014 and Phase 2 opening in time for September 2015.


A total of 1049 Room Modules were installed to the scheme offering 779 high-quality student rooms with easy access to Colchester’s Essex University Campus.
