Posted 6 February 2023 by Warren Kidson

Mountford Pigott is delighted to announce that the new London Wimbledon Central Travelodge was officially opened by the Mayor of Merton last month.

Mountford Pigott was appointed by Reef Estates to develop a sustainable design for construction and to provide delivery stage services to the Main Contractor Barnes Construction.

The development is located on a constrained central Wimbledon site and the design focuses on sustainability and energy conservation to achieve net-zero emissions.  The accommodation comprises a 177-bedroom budget luxe hotel with a 116-cover restaurant/bar over two ground floor double-storey commercial units.

Sustainability measures include; low-energy lighting; motion sensing controls; aerated showers and taps; air source heat pumps designed to maximise efficiency in the heating and cooling system; and a blue/green roof which provide a habitat to encourage biodiversity and assists with rainwater attenuation as part of the SuDS.  The development achieves a BREEAM “Excellent” standard and an Energy Performance Certificate “A” rating.  The sustainability achievements of the development contribute towards meeting the project team’s zero-carbon and ESG goals.
