Premier Inn, Brixton design and build scheme completed

The refurbishment of the mechanical and electrical infrastructure of a 90-bed Premier Inn hotel in the heart of London has been completed by G&H Building Services.

Situated above a row of shops in a five-storey building in Brixton’s busy high street, G&H Building Services designed, built and installed the project’s mechanical and electrical services.

G&H Building Services was appointed by main contractor JJ Rhatigan in a £1.2 million contract.

Innovative designs saw two plant rooms – one on the roof that included a combined heat and power unit and the other in the basement included distribution plant – used to make best use of the space available.

Contracts Department Manager at G&H Building Services, Paul Churchill, said: “We have extensive experience working in Central London which is vital given the unique challenges it presents.

“Due to the lack of on-site storage space, deliveries to the high street site had to be precisely timed so vehicles could park close to the hotel.

“Access to the hotel suites was via a stairwell so many of the materials and equipment had to be manually transported to the third and fourth floors.

“These logistical challenges were compounded by the close proximity of a public house and fast food outlet and a high number of pedestrians around the site.

“As well as working considerately and to the highest of health and safety standards, we also implemented late night working to minimise the disruption to people, businesses, traffic and the wider community to deliver the scheme on time and on budget.”

Due to the success of the scheme, G&H Building Services has secured the M&E services for another refurbishment project for Premier Inn in Tolworth, London.

Niall Higgins, Regional Manager at JJ Rhatigan & Company, said: “We have a large portfolio of hotel, residential and mixed use projects currently on site across London.

“G&H Building Services has delivered a high quality service throughout the build of Premier Inn, Brixton and we are delight to have them on board again for the Premier Inn Tolworth project.”
