 Pinewood Structures was contracted for the engineering, design, supply and erect of the complete timber frame structure and roof of a this prestigious hotel for one of the UK’s largest hotel brands. The development was located on Rochester’s riverfront and consisted of 110 bedrooms and an integrated restaurant in a three-storey building. This large timber frame construction project featured more robust external sheathing material to suit the client’s need to reduce noise levels and enhance the high quality experience for guests staying in this hotel.

By using timber frame as the core structure of the hotel, the client was able to benefit from the predicable and fast build times enabled by this type of construction. The development, which was originally contracted to be completed in 9 weeks, was erected by Pinewood Structures in 7 weeks and during the extreme weather experienced during the winter months. Despite erection in the cold season, timber frame encountered no problems in comparison to other construction methods which would have been hindered by the cold weather.

Pinewood Structures completed this job to a high quality finish in a restricted time period and added one more construction to its long list of these types of developments for this leading hotel brand.
