Bathroom pods completed at 3 more Premier Inn HotelsOctober 8, 2012
Elements Europe has successfully manufactured and installed bathroom pods in three more Premier Inn Hotels. Working with three main contractors, Leadbitter for the Dorchester hotel, ISG Jackson for the Ipswich hotel and Bowmer & Kirkland for the Croydon hotel.
These three schemes are a further extension of Elements Europe’s experience in delivering on behalf of the Whitbread Premier Inn hotel brand. This has seen the development of sites implementing the bathroom pod and room pod off-site construction methods.
168 bathroom pods have been installed for the Croydon based Premier Inn hotel, 85 in Ipswich and 65 for the Dorchester hotel. Approximately 5% of the bathroom pods installed for each of these projects are accessible rooms, ensuring that the room dimensions are suitable for wheelchair users. Other features include lever taps and accessible sinks, DDA compliant bath tubs as well as some showers.
The dimensions and nature of these bathroom pods are specified to ensure access for all users. All bathroom pods were designed according to the specification designated by Whitbread Premier Inn hotel brand.
Michael Shand of Elements Europe says “we are very proud of our relationship with the Whitbread Premier Inn Brand and our continued experience in delivering pods for their hotel schemes. Modular construction methods are ideal for the hotel industry as they provide fast and effective solutions meaning that hotel operators can open their doors sooner.”
Elements Europe’s manufacturing facility is based in the West Midlands. The company provides a range of innovative modular construction solutions to many sectors of the construction industry including hotels, care homes, student accommodation and defence.
