Planning Granted For Revolutionary Park Plaza Hotel

Planning permission has been granted for a new £15m Park Plaza Hotel on Western Avenue in London.

ESA – part of Capita Symonds – is designing the 160 room hotel, which will occupy a prominent gateway site opposite Park Royal tube station, on behalf of the PPHE Hotel Group.

The 6,750 sq m hotel will offer four star accommodation over six storeys including a ground floor comprising a bar, restaurant, gym and conference facilities.

It will be constructed using a fast built system that will see most aspects of the hotel – from the key hotel facilities on the ground floor to the completed rooms above – designed and built off site before being stacked together to form the building.

Marek Sroka, ESA, said, “The design philosophy is to deliver a high quality four star scheme for a highly competitive price. Park Plaza Hotels and ESA architects have invested five years of design development and research into producing a modular hotel proposal that will achieve an exceptionally high level of quality design for a reasonable cost.

“We have worked closely with a modular construction company that has allowed us to develop a design that combines modular building and construction insight along with the necessary logistical and industrial production principles and facilities that are key to delivering a successful project of this type. The flexible modular building system and unique facade design that the team has developed has allowed us a good degree of freedom and flexibility as it is the construction process that we have standardised, not the design.”

The scheme also includes a new four storey 1,850 sqm headquarters office building and a 5,000 sqm data centre.

Work on the hotel will start on site later this year.
