    A hotel led mixed-use scheme comprising a 91-bed hotel, a speculative office and a new reception for the Big Yellow self-storage unit to the rear of the site on a strategic plot of land along  the A316 in Richmond. This had been purchased by Big Yellow because any development on the site would have obscured visibility to their existing facility behind. Following extensive feasibility studies it was agreed that a hotel-led development was the most appropriate solution.


    Mountford Pigott prepared generic designs that would accommodate most budget operators and began discussions with the Local Planning Authority. Eventually, the development was forward sold to Whitbread as a Premier Inn and minor modifications were made to the design to suit their specific requirements. Speculative offices were included in the scheme to protect local employment floor area and a new Big Yellow reception was designed to provide much improved facilities in a more prominent position.

    The development achieved a BREEAM rating of "Very Good" incorporating CHP and photovoltaic panels at roof level. The project was completed in June 2012.
