A new extension to the hotel created using Celcon Blocks with traditional mortar and cavity wall insulation.

Demolition of existing outbuildings of the Elme Hall Hotel, followed by construction of a 34 bedroom building known as ‘The Lodge’, this extension has been built to cater for extra demand at the hotel with all modern facilities expected of today’s hotels.

Being a hotel, acoustic considerations were of paramount importance as was robustness of construction materials. As a commercial development there was no need to meet a standard such as the CfSH, but the solution still needed to comply with Building Regulations and be cost effective. Therefore, an aircrete solution was chosen by Project Manager Kevin Wood of Paktel Communications.
