Premier Inn, Lichfield
S Harrison Developments Ltd
Premier Inn guarantees its customers a good night's sleep, or they get their money back. To achieve this, the acoustic performance of the finished product is critical. Our project team worked hard to review every detail, product and specification to satisfy our Client's requirements. Extensive pre-start testing to assess the background noise in the area was carried out and key envelope elements reviewed and altered as a consequence. For example, the windows alter depending on the elevation they are on and their distance from the ground.
The structure is timber frame and the exterior is clad in brick with rain screen and metal profiled sheet cladding to walls and roof. The project achieved BREEAM Very Good. Ground improvement was by vibro compaction. The project included Section 111 highways works to provide a new state of the art puffin crossing.
This is a very busy town centre site which required careful coordination of road traffic and pedestrian routes. Due to the restricted nature of the site, a tower crane was used and oversailing issues addressed and resolved. The Considerate Constructors scheme was adhered to on the site.
