Motel Formule1 Homebush – Constructed ahead of programme
Motel Formule1 involved construction of a seven storey 2 star hotel with 157 rooms and two levels of carpark for 51 vehicles.
The ground floor consists of a reception, back of house area and two separate retail areas. Carparking is located on levels one and two.
The structure is a combination of several structural systems including: pre-cast floor and walls, in-situ columns and post tensioned slabs. There is a transfer slab above the carparks which allows flexibility in the hotel room layout. The combination of systems allowed for a very fast construction period and completed in 11 months, well ahead of programme.
The facade and windows were protected with Sunscreens & Brises – Soleil. A Light weight composite cladding was used on the facade with double glazed windows to reduce heat and sound transmission.
The project was the sixth project constructed for our client Accor, the largest hotel operator in the world.
