Hickory Building Systems offers express build solution for 345-room Holiday Inn Express hotel

ABOUT

At 23 levels, the new Holiday Inn Express hotel in Southbank will be Australia’s tallest hotel to use Hickory Building Systems fast-track construction.

Featuring 345 hotel rooms, the project for developers ProInvest implements structural prefabrication for levels 8 – 22.

The extensive mixed-use development also offers ground floor retail, 3 levels of above ground parking and 3 levels of offices.  An internal, plant and art filled laneway connects the City Road project through to Fawkner Street at the rear.

FEATURES

  • The first 8 levels of the project to utilise conventional, in-situ construction.
  • Levels 8-22 constructed using Hickory Building Systems, enabling a compressed construction timeline achieved through integration of structural prefabrication, proprietary façade system and SYNC bathroom pods.
  • Project retains the original 1930s City Road façade and its glazed terracotta faïence tiles, one of the few remaining Melbourne buildings to feature this distinctive art deco façade treatment.
  • Ground floor retail and public laneway through to Fawkner Street.
  • Public car park on levels 1-3
  • “Great Room” hotel lobby on level 7 with landscaped winter garden
  • Holiday Inn Express hotel guest rooms 8-22
  • Aiming to achieve a 5 star NABERS performance rating
