|Project Title:||Premier Inn, Exeter|
|Project Size:||120 Bedrooms|
|Project Solution:||Room Modules|
|The Client:||Trathen Properties|
Pickstock Construction and Elements Europe, both members of The Pickstock Group , collaborated to deliver a 120 bed Premier Inn hotel in Exeter along with two levels of basement car parking. The construction value of the development is £9.7 million and is being delivered for Plymouth based private investor client Trathen Properties. The project was a turnkey solution by Pickstock Construction.
The main construction contract and project management was undertaken by Pickstock Construction, whilst sister company Elements Europe manufactured and installed their Room Pod system. Implementation of the Room Pod building system resulted in an expedited construction program, which was a considerable benefit to the client who were able to open the hotel much earlier to derive revenue.
The fully volumetric Room Pods were manufactured to the strict specification of the Premier Inn ID3++ dark standards. Elements Europe also provided linen rooms, stair cores, corridor cassettes and the flat roof structure for the development. The site incorporated a double level in situ case concrete structure to accommodate two levels of underground parking below the hotel.
Pickstock Construction has previously delivered turnkey solutions for the hotel sector including Premier Inn. Elements Europe has now delivered Room Pods and Solopods for nine Premier Inn hotel developments throughout the country, working with other contractors to successfully achieve the standards of the Whitbread Group plc.
