McAleer & Rushe D&B Contractors
White Ink have completed a number of new build Premier Inn hotels in partnership with McAleer & Rushe D&B Contractors for various private developer clients. These have ranged in size from 100 bedrooms at Aberdeen airport to 400 bedrooms at Heathrow airport, and contract values from £3.5m up to £16m.
Appointed from tender stage, White Ink worked closely with the Contractor to develop RIBA Stage 2+ designs by other Architects into financially viable developments in accordance with Premier Inn’s exacting Brand Standards and stringent acoustic requirements.
All projects were completed via a fast track, fixed price Design & Build contract where works included turnkey interior finishes to the Premier Inn Brand Standards and all associated landscaping and site works.
Each project threw up its own challenges: close proximity of sites to the runways at both Heathrow and Aberdeen airports and to the A4/M4 stacked carriageway at Brentford required specialist acoustic consideration and detailing within the facade; stringent planning requirements in Woking required careful attention to levels and co-ordination of M&E plant; tight site constraints at Brentford and Maidenhead required stacked accommodation and the inclusion of basement car parking.
"Very responsive even with remoteness of project to office. Very successful project. Well done."
