Work on the Best Western Plus Wembley Hotel was undertaken by PMP Construction Ltd and was a two year project that completed in September 2017.
PMP Construction Ltd is a forward thinking construction company based in London, serving London and the surrounding areas. The professionally managed company was formed by its two highly experienced managing directors who have over thirty years of experience in the construction industry.
Operating in the UK since June 2015 the company has quickly expanded its workforce and does not rely on agents and subcontractors. At present the company operates from one head office in Southgate, London separated into two divisions with the architects as one part and the engineers, accounts and purchasing departments in another section.
Speaking to Premier Hospitality magazine about working on the Best Western Plus London Wembley Hotel, PMP Construction Ltd Director Stelios Mylonas said: “It was a design and brief project in which we have done the whole 181 room scheme. It was based on two phases plus another eight floors above, totalling the site to 11 floors. The project was about 30% refurbishment and then the rest was new build. We had a very good relationship with the client and we were very happy to work with them again.
“We have worked with the client before when we did a Best Western in Croydon. We completed that site in January this year and that was a 107 hotel room scheme.
“At Wembley, for us, the basements were the biggest challenge. The excavation work in the basement was a challenge because it was a very tight site and we had to have conveyor belts taking soil to the road level.
“Conveyor belts don’t work at the same speed as a normal escalator. It was a challenge but we like to take on challenges and find a way around them.”
