Sketch image of the Sandown Premier Inn
Building Sandown’s new Premier Inn is a complex construction and engineering challenge.
Our highly-experienced team is working hard to complete the construction safely, speedily and with care to ensure minimal disruption to our neighbours and to everyone who uses The Esplanade.
Carter Lauren are the principal building contractors for the site and are a long-standing construction partner with Whitbread. They have worked with us to build a wide range of top-quality and successful hotels across the country.
We will be working closely with Carter Lauren at Sandown to ensure we deliver the hotel in a timely and safe way.
LATEST UPDATE - 26 June 2020
Construction on the new Premier Inn on the Esplanade has restarted following the lockdown pause, with Main Contractor Carter Lauren opening the gates in early June.
We have put in place new ways of working to ensure the safety of the public and workforce, reducing any risks associated with Covid-19. Although some processes are taking longer than before, the work is beginning to gather pace with internal fitting out of hotel bedrooms and the restaurant now well progressed.
Externally too the building is looking very good beneath its veil of scaffolding which will start to be removed during w/c 6 July.
If all goes according to plan during the final stages of the project, Whitbread looks forward to opening the doors to guests in the autumn.
