Berkeley Homes Choose Elements Europe to Complete Premier Inn Woolwich
Elements Europe has again been selected by Berkeley Homes as its preferred modular solution specialist. The project will see the delivery of 120 bedrooms to Premier Inn’s latest ID4 standard.
The Woolwich development was re-aquired by Berkeley Homes earlier this year. Residing on Beresford Street, the major route through Woolwich, the partly completed building is in much need of completion following abandonment.
Elements Europe and Berkeley Homes will now work in collaboration to complete the construction of the 6 storey building. The site is part of Berkeley Homes’ Royal Arsenal Riverside project, which has seen a huge investment within the Woolwich area delivering high quality apartments along the River Thames.
The hotel was previously installed with imported shipping containers as its hotel rooms, these have now been removed from the site.
Elements Europe will manufacture 130 Room Modules for Premier Inn, adding to a wide portfolio of previous work.
Stair cores and linen rooms will be manufactured by Elements Europe as well as flat roof cassettes with off-site manufactured plant areas. The roof will also feature a section of green roof and have a space saving rooftop plant room.
Elements Europe is currently working closely with EPR Architects to ensure all design work is finalised before the Room Modules go into manufacture.
Mark Jowett, Design Manager for Elements Europe commented “The existing transfer structure which includes concrete frame towers and slab penetrations raised a few challenges in design. However working closely with Berkley Homes, Elements Europe’s design team has been able to create a modular design solution which has allowed the required room sizes to be achieved with minimal remedial work to the original structure.”
This will be the second project Elements Europe has worked with Berkeley Homes on following the successful delivery of Green Park House, an iconic student accommodation scheme in Bath’s city centre.
