The Client

Elements Europe, in collaboration with Leadbitter, delivered on a 101-bedroom Premier Inn hotel in Coventry.

Our  Bathroom Pod and Room Pod offsite construction systems have now been integrated into numerous Premier Inn schemes. Elements Europe has therefore built a strong relationship with Whitbread PLC, Premier Inn’s parent company – and we have now delivered on projects all across the UK for this client.

Project Description: Bathroom Pods and Room Pods

The project saw Elements Europe provide 59 Bathroom Pods  and 42 bedroom modules using its Room Pod system. The roof structure and plant rooms were also supplied to Leadbitter by Elements Europe, which were incorporated as part of the structure using Elements Europe’s LSF Façade product.

The hotel is located in the City College, The Butts; it originally opened in 1935 during the height of the art deco movement. The scheme combines ultra-modern Bedroom and Bathroom Pods designed sympathetically and in line with the original features, which included coloured leaded windows and column flooring.

The building was extended from a two-storey structure by placing a steel grillage over the existing second floor accommodation. This allowed the third floor of Room Pods to be installed. Elements Europe also manufactured and installed a modularised roofing cassette system to assist the main contractor.
