Chapman Taylor shortlisted for ‘Best Architect’ at the Offsite Construction Awards

Chapman Taylor has been shortlisted in the 2019 Offsite Construction Awards “Best Architect” category for our design of the Holiday Inn Express modular development at Trafford, Manchester.

The Offsite Construction Awards are held annually to celebrate the very best in modular construction, honouring outstanding examples of factory-built structures and innovative offsite technology. The 2018 awards ceremony takes place on 5 March at ExCel London, with an estimated 350 industry delegates expected to attend.

We have also written Insight papers, spoken at off-site conferences and given presentations explaining the benefits of modular construction - all reflecting our view that off-site construction encourages greater collaboration and an excellent quality of end-product.

The 220-bed Holiday Inn Express, opened in June 2017, is constructed from purpose-built steel shipping containers complete with factory-finished interior fixtures and fittings, all of which were installed before being delivered to site.

The modules were stacked on top of each other without the need for additional supporting structures, to enable fast installation on site. Each module consisted of two bedrooms and a section of corridor, with all of the 220 bedrooms placed on site in less than three weeks, ready for external cladding to commence.

The 6,000m² hotel, located next to Manchester’s EventCity venue on a 1.75-acre site, was a joint venture between Topland, Marick and Mill Lane Estates, and is the first Holiday Inn Express ‘Generation 4’ in the UK to be built using a ‘modular’ construction process.

Chapman Taylor’s Manchester studio, alongside the main contractor, Bowmer & Kirkland, developed the detailed design for the hotel by adopting a completely different design process, creating a coordinated 3D BIM model which enabled off-site works to commence in line with an ambitiously accelerated building programme.

Chapman Taylor is a keen advocate of the potential benefits of off-site construction to clients and interested parties across all development sectors. We believe that volumetric modular development can save substantial time and money for clients while offering a very high quality of finished building.

Congratulations to everyone involved in realising the Holiday Inn Express project for this well-deserved nomination.
