Project Overview


The New Hampton by Hilton hotel at Bristol Airport was the 50th Hampton to open in the UK, in early 2017 and the success of the scheme was largely attributed to the use of Volumetric bedrooms built using containerised technology. SW architects Stride Treglown worked with CIMC-MBS engineers in London and China to manage the modular fabrication design development, coordinating the structural and mechanical and electrical bedroom areas design for a UK project, built by Kier Group. The bedrooms arrived ready fitted out according to the hotel brand’s exacting requirements, including finished bathrooms, beds, chairs, casegoods, equipment and floor and wall coverings, sourced in China.

The entire 201 bedroom hotel was assembled in less than four weeks, allowing the bedroom areas to be 95-98% complete when the entire construction project was only 50% built. By embracing a modular solution, the design and fabrication of the bedrooms ahead of construction starting on site means that projects could be delivered with a 20 – 30% saving on programme. The High quality of bedroom finishes achieved as well as the generous public areas at ground floor have delighted the client and operator alike.

By embracing modular solutions, the design and fabrication of the bedrooms ahead of construction starting on site means that projects can be delivered with a 20 – 30% saving on programme, which significantly enhances project viabilities. That is, construction loans are for shorter periods, online bookings can start earlier and building contractor’s preliminaries for length of time on site are shorter.

The use of a container-build bedroom solution was decided before the hotel secured Planning Approval which delivered the best results for Modular design and for the Owners, who are the parent company of the Modular System. Early engagement with the modular supplier is a key factor in making a success of modular systems, coupled with a hotel design of two simple rectangular bedroom blocks linked by a glazed corridor on 3 levels.

The 201/251 phased design allows for an additional 50 bedrooms to be added to the hotel as passenger numbers and hence hotel occupancy increase – an ideal build solution for a hotel to remain trading for the duration of the fast-track installation. The façade cladding solution was also adapted to suit the Module structure, making use of longspan aluminium composite panel solution to achieve an insulated and watertight façade as soon as practicable. The façade treatments were then applied over this external skin.

The typical volumetric module consists of a bespoke section through the building – a completed bedroom/ unfurnished corridor/ completed bedroom that are stacked and bolted together on site in a matter of weeks, designed according to the exacting Hotel chain Brand standards with consistently high quality finishes.

CIMC as Container Modular Provider were also the developer and owner of the final scheme. They provided the Hotel for BAL Bristol Airports Limited. Start on site date November 2015, Completed End Feb 2017.
