Offsite modular specialist Elements Europe has been appointed as the main contractor on a £100m central London hotel and office scheme.
The central London scheme in East Road will provide 5 storeys of high quality offices below a 17 storey volumetric modular Motel One 4* hotel.
The majority of the superstructure will be constructed using prefabricated modules, minimising environmental effects and disruption, the company said.
The office space aims to achieve ‘Excellent’ BREEAM certification, underlining the project’s sustainability credentials.
Elements Europe recently secured significant investment through majority acquisition by the giant South Korean Conglomerate GS E&C.
It has a vision of becoming a world leader in the creation of future sustainable, technologically advanced manufactured construction solutions, it said.
Simon Underwood, CEO of Elements Europe, said: “We look forward to working with our partners in this prime, central London location, on this advanced scheme.
“Elements Europe has considerable experience as a leading large scale modular manufacturing and construction company, having been founded over 17 years ago.
“Now supported by one of the world’s leading construction and engineering Group’s – GS E&C – it enables us to provide certainty and security for our customers in today’s difficult markets.
“The environmental aspects of this scheme are important to us as a business and are another example of how the industry can continue to modernise for our sustainable future.”
