A modular shipping container Hotel 

This project is a 220 bedroom Holiday Inn Express in Trafford City, Manchester, UK, which is constructed from purpose-built steel shipping containers complete with fully factory finished interior fixtures and fittings, all of which are installed before being delivered to site. 

All container bedrooms placed on site in less than 3 weeks

The modules are stacked on top of each without the need for additional supporting structure to enable fast installation on site. Each module consists of 2 bedrooms and a section of corridor and all of the 220 bedrooms were placed on site in less than 3 weeks, ready for external cladding to commence.

External envelope applied once the modules were in place

The external envelope is applied once the modules are in place, using pre-finished rainscreen cladding and single ply roofing systems that are fixed to specific areas of the module to maintain an airtight seal. 

Chapman Taylor developed a co-ordinated 3D BIM model to inform the detailed design and enable the off-site works to commence, as part of an accelerated build programme.
