Our Hotels Team are providing Project Management and Cost Consultancy services for a ground breaking scheme at East Midlands airport. The £22m, 216 bedroom hotel is on target to be the first BREEAM Excellent hotel in UK.
Edmond Shipway are experts in Hotel construction, particularly in Value Engineering and spatial efficiency, and with our detailed knowledge of off-site construction we are delivering the scheme to programme and within tight financial constraints.
In line with East Midlands Airport’s commitment to be carbon neutral by 2012, the hotel will utilise a range of low energy technologies to reduce the energy demand of the building; supplemented by an on-site Combined Heat and Power (CHP) engine with a Pure Plant Oil (PPO) TriGeneration Energy Centre; that will export electricity to the national grid outside of normal occupancy hours. This system will also collect and store any waste heat generated in a thermal store, which will be used to heat and cool the whole hotel; and will deliver a 87% reduction in CO2 and supply up to 90% of the consumed energy from a renewable source.
We are delighted to be involved in such an innovative project and look forward to working with our Client to deliver a completed building ready for opening in summer 2011.
