    When Balfour Beatty carried out the design and construction of new £45m student residences at Aberystwyth University, Avonline Flooring was appointed to complete the £700,000 flooring contract.

    The Penglais Farm Student Residences offer the very latest in purpose built student accommodation for 1000 students. Individual rooms are bigger than anything the University has offered before, and the development includes 100 studio flats specifically designed for postgraduate students.

    Located within easy walking distance to the University’s Penglais Campus, the new residences are equipped with hard wired and Wi-Fi internet access. The development features a series of two and three storey buildings housing students living in self-catered accommodation and a central hub.
