Butlins, Bognor Regis
Wave opened in Summer 2012 at Butlins Bognor Regis and is a £25m new build volumetric modular project consisting of 215 bedrooms and 29 apartments spread over eight stories.
As superstructure engineers for the project working on behalf of Unite Modular Solutions Ltd, One worked closely with the client to develop this complex hotel on behalf of main contractor, McAlpine, and the project owner Butlins.
Wave incorporates multi-sided modules, luxury fit-outs and structural interfaces within the facades to deliver external balconies, which mirror the shape of a cruise ship, fitting in with the seaside landscape. This method of off-site construction ensures all the services are incorporated from the outset, including plumbing and electrics, enabling simple connection on-site ready for occupation.
One’s team of engineers was able to proactively use their experience to advise of potential issues early, offering practical cost effective solutions throughout.
