Six-Storey Modular Moxy Hotel Construction
Team: Total Group
Type: JCT Design & Build Contract
Project value: £3,900,000
Procurement: Competitive Tender
Scheme Overview: On behalf of our client, Vastint Total Group, we are excited to announce the construction of a new six-storey modular Moxy Hotel in Bristol City Centre. This innovative project will feature 214 rooms and will be a key component of the city’s ongoing regeneration plans.
Situated next to the flagship retail and leisure development, Cabot Circus, the £8.65m Moxy Boutique Hotel will offer guests a convenient and stylish accommodation option in the heart of Bristol. With its prime location and modern amenities, the hotel is expected to attract both business and leisure travelers.
The design of the hotel includes a spacious lobby and reception area, a vibrant bar/restaurant, and a well-equipped gymnasium. These facilities have been carefully planned to provide guests with a comfortable and enjoyable stay, whether they are visiting for business or pleasure.
The construction of the Moxy Boutique Hotel is part of Vastint’s commitment to investing in Bristol’s future. By contributing to the city’s regeneration plans, Vastint aims to create a vibrant and dynamic urban environment that will benefit both residents and visitors alike.
We are proud to be involved in this exciting development, which is scheduled for completion in Spring 2021. The modular construction approach ensures a faster and more efficient building process, allowing us to deliver a high-quality hotel within a shorter timeframe.
As the project progresses, we will continue to work closely with Vastint to ensure that every aspect of the Moxy Boutique Hotel meets the highest standards of design and functionality. Our team of experienced professionals is dedicated to delivering a hotel that exceeds expectations and provides an exceptional guest experience.
Whether you are a business traveler looking for a convenient location or a tourist seeking a comfortable base to explore Bristol, the Moxy Boutique Hotel will offer a welcoming and stylish environment. We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting new addition to Bristol’s hospitality scene in Spring 2021.
Project challenges and resolutions
The challenges and resolutions faced during the construction of a six-storey modular Moxy Hotel. In this article, we will explore the unique hurdles encountered in modular construction and the innovative solutions implemented to overcome them.
1. Logistics and Planning
Constructing a six-storey modular hotel requires meticulous planning and coordination. One of the main challenges is ensuring the smooth transportation and delivery of the modular units to the construction site. To address this, our team worked closely with transportation experts to develop a detailed logistics plan. This included identifying the most efficient routes, obtaining necessary permits, and coordinating with local authorities to minimize disruptions during transportation.
2. Site Preparation
Preparing the construction site for a modular hotel presents its own set of challenges. The site must be properly leveled and cleared to accommodate the modules. Our team conducted a thorough site analysis to identify any potential obstacles or issues. This allowed us to develop a comprehensive site preparation plan, which included grading the land, installing necessary utilities, and ensuring proper drainage.
3. Structural Integrity
Ensuring the structural integrity of a six-storey modular hotel is of paramount importance. Each module must be securely connected to the others to create a stable and safe structure. Our team employed advanced engineering techniques to design a robust modular connection system. This involved using high-strength steel connectors and conducting extensive load testing to ensure the modules could withstand the forces experienced in a multi-storey building.
4. Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) Systems
Integrating the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems in a modular hotel can be complex. Our team collaborated closely with MEP experts to develop innovative solutions. We utilized pre-fabricated MEP components that were seamlessly integrated into the modular units during the manufacturing process. This approach minimized on-site installation time and ensured the efficient functioning of these essential systems.
5. Quality Control
Maintaining high-quality standards throughout the construction process is crucial. In modular construction, it is essential to have stringent quality control measures in place. Our team implemented a comprehensive quality assurance program, which involved regular inspections at various stages of the manufacturing and assembly process. This ensured that each module met the required standards before being transported to the construction site.
6. Project Management and Coordination
Managing a modular construction project requires effective coordination among various stakeholders. Our team employed advanced project management techniques to ensure smooth communication and collaboration. Regular meetings were held with all involved parties, including architects, engineers, manufacturers, and contractors, to address any issues and maintain project timelines.
Constructing a six-storey modular Moxy Hotel comes with its own set of challenges, but with careful planning and innovative solutions, these challenges can be overcome. By addressing logistics, site preparation, structural integrity, MEP systems, quality control, and project management, our team successfully completed the construction of a modular hotel that meets the highest standards of quality and efficiency.
Situated on Newport Road arguably the busiest street in Cardiff, this project necessitated a focused and fully co-ordinated management plan for all health and safety and access issues throughout the course of the scheme, in order to safeguard members of the public and ensure an efficient build process.
