Premier Inn, Croydon, Ipswich & Dorchester

The Client

Elements Europe worked in collaboration with three main contractors to successfully manufacture and install Bathroom Pods to three Premier Inn hotels. Working with Leadbitter for the Dorchester hotel, ISG Jackson for the Ipswich hotel and Bowmer & Kirkland for the Croydon hotel, Elements Europe manufactured and installed a total of 328 Bathroom Pods using the Solopod system.

These hotels were just 3 of the Premier Inn schemes Elements Europe has helped to deliver for Whitbread PLC. Working with a range of architects, contractors and subcontractors on each project, Elements Europe has played a fundamental role in the construction of numerous Premier Inn hotels across the UK.

Project Description: 318 Bathroom Pods

These three new Premier Inn projects delivered a total of 318 Bathroom Pods, 168 Bathroom Pods to the Croydon-based Premier Inn hotel, 85 to Ipswich and 65 for the Dorchester hotel. All Bathroom Pods, are designed in accordance with the specific design requirements of the Premier Inn brand.

Approximately 5% of the Bathroom Pods installed into each hotel are accessible rooms, which ensure room dimensions are suitable for wheelchair users. These rooms feature hand rails, lever-style taps and accessible sinks to ensure optimal accessibility. DDA compliant bathtubs, as well as some showers, have also been installed.
