Room modules
A Win at Wokefield Park Hotel and Leisure Venue

Elements Europe has been contracted to deliver Room Modules for leading conference and events company Principal Hayley at De Vere’s historic Wokefield Park Hotel in Reading.

In November of last year, part of the hotel was devastated by a fire which saw the hotel lose 100 rooms. Fortunately the oldest part of the venue, an 18th century mansion house was not damaged.

Elements Europe has been selected to work alongside Wates Construction, to deliver a new 95 bedroom section of hotel to replace what was lost in the fire.

The 3 storey building will feature a mansard roof, something that Elements Europe has manufactured Room Modules for previously with ease on a number of projects. Elements Europe will also manufacture all corridor cassettes as well as a plant, linen, cleaning and IT room. Room Modules will be installed to the main contractor’s schedule of works.

Elements Europe’s procurement team will work closely with the hotel to ensure that the interior is to the hotels exacting standards and is an exact reflection of the aesthetics of their brand.

Principal Hayley needed an efficient construction programme to enable the hotel to be occupied at its full capacity again, they recognised that a modular solution would meet this need.

Kevin Arthur, Director for Elements Europe commented “We are delighted to be undertaking our first project with both Wates Construction and Principal Hayley, working with both parties in developing the prototype module has been a positive experience and we now look forward to delivering the building for the client.  Both parties have had a positive proactive approach supporting us into full manufacture”.

Manufacture has commenced on the Room Modules at Elements Europe’s manufacturing facility in Telford, Shropshire following sign off from Principal Hayley.
