The historic city of Canterbury welcomes 620,000 overnight visitors a year* and is an internationally renowned visitor location. Premier Inn did not have a presence in the city and this development provided 120 guest bedrooms in a prominent street corner location, a walking distance from the city centre.
As Employer’s Agent, working for the developer, we worked closely with the Premier Inn’s team to ensure that a scheme was delivered on schedule, on budget and providing the level of quality required to be achieved.
This scheme was designed to – and achieved – a BREEAM Very Good rating. The design of the scheme maximised the site capacity, and also encompassed a number of street level retail units, which have all been let.
The building is a welcoming addition to Canterbury’s skyline and has added to the overall redevelopment of the area. We were delighted that the scheme has been so successful and the hotel has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor, echoing how good the scheme has been. *2009 statistics
