Mantra’s first prefabricated Peppers hotel edges closer to completion
Mantra Group, in partnership with Mode Development Group and Hickory Building Systems, has revealed Peppers Kings Square in Perth, the company’s first prefabricated Peppers hotel, is six months from completion.
Heralding the arrival of cutting-edge technology and predicting a future trend in the way hotels will be built, the prefabricated technology puts Peppers Kings Square in a category of its own, according to Mantra Group.
Hickory Building Systems patented construction technology utilises elements including modular bathrooms, pre-attached facades and precast concrete panels, increasing not only the speed at which a build can be completed, but also the safety, quality of the workmanship while reducing the environmental impact of construction.
Mode Development Group Director, Christian Boucousis said he sees prefabricated hotels as an innovative way forward for Australia’s thriving hotel and tourism industry, where demand for accommodation is steadily increasing.
“Our vision is to build a Hospitality Trust unlocking value in sites around Australia using faster, more cost effective and more environmentally friendly construction,” he said.
“Therefore this unique design developed by specialist hotel architect Peter Israel of PTI Group and Hickory Building Solutions will support the growing demand for tourism in Australia in affordable accommodation solutions.”
Rising 17 floors in total, the hotel features 120 Studio Apartments and world class conferencing facilities.
Located in a prime position opposite Perth Arena, Peppers King Square is ideal for both the corporate and leisure traveller.
Mantra Group says with luxe furnishings, state-of-the-art appliances and contemporary finishes, it will bring an unparalleled modernity to Perth’s CBD.
Tomas Johnsson, Chief Operating Officer of Mantra Group said he sees the opening of Peppers Kings Square in the heart of Perth CBD as a “strong indication of the continued focus on the introduction of the luxury Peppers brand to key CBD markets”.
Additionally to Peppers Kings Square in Perth, the Peppers CBD portfolio also includes Peppers Docklands in Melbourne, Peppers Gallery Hotel in Canberra and Peppers Waymouth Hotel in Adelaide.
