The first Premier Inn constructed using the V-System. As a trial-run project the Whitbread group wanted to use a small hotel extension in Blackpool to test the effectiveness of this construction method.
Challenges and Resolutions:
Certain site restrictions and local logistic issues meant that these modules were delivered late in the afternoon and the erection carried through into the late night. With our simple patented connector system each module could be located and fastened in position even in these low-light conditions.
Using the Warminster design this Premier Inn at Blackpool closely followed many of the same details; masonry façade, clay tiled pitched roof, link corridor. The repetition of similar design features increased efficiencies within our factory.
Continued Success:Having proven the system works, Whitbread were happy to discuss developing other, larger hotel projects with CIMC-MBS.
