Travelodge Erects Chinese Pre-Fab Hotel in Uxbridge

UK builds recyclable hotel

Well that's more UK builders and tradesmen without a job, expect cash strapped low-budget house-builders to follow suit as the Chinese supply our first pre-fabricated hotel built from pre-finished container like modules complete with bathrooms already installed.

The firm supplying the modules hopes to be able to shortly offer these modules pre-decorated and furnished.

  • I read about this this morning in Metro.

    It might actually be an improvement on build quality for some builders. Not that much to do with housing though.

  • Sold My Soul To The Never Never Never says:

    Rooms to cost £19 a night! Hey – bring them on. A studio flat in Uxbridge costs 95K and a 25 year 100% repayment mortgage at 6% interest costs a little over £600. By my calculation you could rent a room for a whole year and it would cost only £578 a month. And just think – clean sheets every night; no utility bills and all the tea and coffee you can drink – no housework either!!

  • I would say it has a lot to do with housing:

    “The firms behind the modular design — Verbus Systems, a joint-venture between consulting engineers Buro Happold and constructor George & Harding — say the modular system could also be used for student accommodation and urban housing.”

  • paul, I agree. The UK’s construction industry is stuck in the 1930s, particularly when it comes to house-building. Countries like Germany eagerly embrace the latest construction techniques and new technology; whereas in the UK we like to pretend we’re living in a fantasy world where every house is made of red bricks and has a cutesy chimney.
