Hampton by Hilton London Docklands
A successful collaboration between Maccreanor Lavington, the design architects, combining with Stride Treglown’s specialist hotel interior design and modular delivery teams
Stride Treglown’s architectural, interior, Sustainability and CDM-C teams were appointed post planning to deliver this scheme for London Dockside Limited, which is part of a wider consent for three hotels on the site – serving London City Airport and the Excel Centre. The design architect is Maccreanor Lavington.
The majority of the hotel is bedroom floors which are to be fabricated using offsite modular construction produced in China. This system of procurement is of great interest to the Hilton Brand, as it achieves brand compliance and can be shipped to any port in the world that is linked to a good road network. The building was designed with a loadbearing brick façade and elaborate detailing to hark back to the areas industrial warehouse heritage.
The video below shows how the same offsite modular construction process is being used at the Hampton by Hilton Hotel, Bristol Airport.
As part of the development, space that was consented for office use has been revised to become further bedrooms, meeting rooms and a separate full service restaurant. Newham Borough has a design-led development focus which has meant for a challenging process for building a budget hotel in the post Olympics era.
Initial development work started in January 2015 and was completed in 2017.
Stride Treglown’s Sustainability team secured a Final BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating for the hotel in March 2017, with particularly high scores achieved in the Materials and Waste categories.
