The 144-room Veriu Hotel, acquired from Folkestone, is a clear example of Interpod’s proven ability to bring certainty to our partners.
Interpod’s unmatched quality and all Australian manufacturing components in this 144-Hotel bathroom offering provided significant risk-reduction in the then-Folkestone Hotel development strategy. Since completing Bathroom Pods for the project, Folkestone Hotel was acquired by the Hotel body, Veriu.
Astron Designer Panel – an elevation to reduced maintenance
The decision to use the elegant and hygienic Astron Designer Panels as a part of this project, elevates the bathrooms to a new level by removing tiles and grout, making them mould-free and looking beautiful with minimal maintenance. The strong and durable nature of Astron’s design means that is completely impervious to water and is exceptionally stain and scratch-resistant – a perfect solution for a large hotel project.
The $44 million hotel will be operated by Veriu Hotels and Suites, a subsidiary of project partner Furnished Property.
The project drivers
With a strict construction schedule at hand, the Folkestone Group and their partners engaged Interpod to bring much-needed certainty to this significant project. Construction commenced in 2017 with an aggressive schedule set to meet a September 2019 deadline.
How the project played out with Bathroom Pods
By engaging Interpod early in the timeline, all stakeholders involved in the project were able to mitigate the risk involved in the often costly and time-consuming bathroom element of the hotel’s construction.
The successful outcome saw 144 Bathroom Pods designed, delivered and installed in Sydney’s high-end Veriu Hotel project.
