Premier Inn – Uxbridge
Premier Inn hotels are part of leisure giant Whitbread Plc. We have worked with Whitbread and their construction partners for many years on numerous projects across the UK. The award winning Premier Inn chain continues to grow as customers seek good quality hotels on a budget.
Premier Inn Uxbridge is a recent example of our work. As part of their ‘Good Together’ corporate responsibility programme Whitbread are committed to being a force for good in the communities in which they operate so sustainability and energy efficiency were at the heart of this project.
Working alongside the client and our construction partners from inception to handover, we were responsible for a full Mechanical and Electrical services design. In line with London planning requirements we were required to reduce energy usage by 35%. Key elements of our strategy were the installation of Photovoltaic (P.V.) panels and a roof mounted solar collector providing a hot water supplement.
We met client objectives and equally importantly to us all, the feedback provided by guests staying at the hotel has been overwhelmingly positive.
Premier Inn is the fastest growing hotel chain in the UK. By 2018 there will be an additional 23,000 Premier Inn rooms in the UK, taking the total to 75,000. Whitbread make a commitment to their customers that growth is never at the expense of quality and we are partners to that commitment. We continue to be part of this fantastic success story.
