RED Construction South West has been appointed to deliver the £20m net zero carbon ZEAL Hotel in Exeter
The Exeter ZEAL Hotel is third project that RED Construction South West has delivered for the client.
Located in Exeter Science Park and designed by architects ECE Westworks Bristol, the net zero ZEAL Hotel will be targeted at the business, leisure, and sustainability orientated market, and works are set to commence on site this autumn.
RED Construction South West has been brought in to deliver the hotel, developing its bespoke design elements to over 140 rooms across four storeys, a bar, restaurant with a ‘theatre’ kitchen, and work and meeting facilities.
The project will also include landscaping, the integration of renewable energy sources, and the implementation of over 25 solar-powered EV charging points.
The first net zero carbon ZEAL Hotel
RED South West managing director, Derek Quinn, commented: “After working with ZEAL Hotels for many years, it is a privilege to be working with the team on their first net zero carbon ‘ZEAL Hotel’, in a region we are passionate about.
“The build will have many unique elements that will draw on the RED Construction South West team’s extensive expertise, and we look forward to breaking ground on this milestone project for our business.”
‘Mindfully modern and unlike any other hotel in the region’
ZEAL Hotels managing director, Tim Wheeldon, added: “The first ZEAL Hotel has been designed to challenge everything we know about the hotel construction industry. From the build to the final product, ZEAL Hotel will be mindfully modern and unlike any other hotel in the region.
“We are delighted to have appointed RED Construction South West to bring this exciting project to life and are eager to be working with their expert team again. It’s exciting to have Exeter Science Park, the first of several locations we are presently considering.”
The Exeter ZEAL Hotel is targeted to open in early 2024.
