Allison Pike have recently completed a project adding 6 new Premier Plus rooms to the York City (Blossom Street North) Premier Inn. The new accommodation includes one fully accessible room as well as five standard layout rooms, all designed as “best new rooms with all the perks”. Located within underutilised ground floor space, these new facilities add to the range of bedrooms on offer at this site.
A proposal designed by Allison Pike for a 71 bedroom Premier Inn with Beefeater restaurant & 90 parking spaces to be constructed in the car park of the Leekes of Melksham department store was recently approved by Wiltshire Council. Currently brownfield land comprising an unused section of the store’s car park, the site lies at an important gateway for the town.
Located opposite two Grade II listed buildings, the design of the hotel & restaurant had to respond these buildings; the adjacent department store; and mark the northern perimeter of the town centre.
Allison Pike Partnership completed their latest project for Whitbread in October. The project, a four-storey, 44 bedroom annex at Premier Inn Stoke Hanley, was handled by Director, Paul Dunlop and project architect Deborah Greenwood. Medlock FRB were the principal contractors and the project managers were Monaghans.
The 23 additional bedrooms provided at the Burton upon Trent Central Premier Inn were handed over a week ahead of programme this month. Adding to the existing 64 rooms, this extension creates an 87 bedroom hotel and the project included a reception upgrade to bring the scheme up to date. Planning permission was granted by East Staffordshire BC on 25th January this year and work started on site on 8th May. Originally projected to complete on 19th October, Practical Completion was achieved a week earlier than scheduled.
A recent completion in the Premier Inn Extension programme has been handed over at the contemporary Widnes hotel. Built over 4 floors in timber framed construction this design by Allison Pike features solar shading on the south facing elevations to reduce heat gain. The external walls are finished in a K Rend through colour system onto a blockwork outer leaf. The lower floor is faced in an artificial stone.
