Moxy is the brand name for Marriott’s new budget design hotel concept.The construction concept is based on a standard design that uses pre-fabricated Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) elements, which are produced in Vastint’s own factory in Italy and shipped around Europe to different sites. The CLT concept has two main advantages: speed of construction and the use of a sustainable building material.
PBA has been involved since the design of the prototype and we have carried out technical due diligence for Vastint Hospitality on 25 sites across the UK, Germany and Belgium. Further technical optimisation followed on live projects with the design of standard facades, internal CHP, acoustic and thermal insulation systems and incorporation of Moxy’s original and exciting interior designs.
We helped secure planning consent to build a Moxy 437-bedroom hotel in Stratford, one of the first planning consents obtained for this brand of hotel in the UK. We supported the planning application submission through the provision of the full range of planning, technical and environmental services. Our high-quality design approach and detailed consideration of the site’s location within the wider Stratford City masterplan led to planning consent success.
For Moxy Eschborn, PBA Germany took the lead consultancy role procuring planning and building permits followed by detailed design and tender support.
