New Year, new IconInc and Roomzzz locations

Posted 18.01.22 | By Alice

2019 is set to be another ambition fuelled year for The Parklane Group as building works at three developments, across the North of England, continue to progress.

Here’s how things are getting on…

Gravity, IconInc Lincoln

Work has progressed quickly throughout recent months in Lincoln. The ground beams, pile caps, bolt boxes and below ground drainage are all complete. And the steel frame on top is progressing quickly now, forming the main structure of the building.

Some external and internal walls have been retained from the former school house, and at present a new steel frame is being built up behind that. Inside the school house area joiners are also working on laying timber floors.

Internally, and when finished, this build will be the most progressive of all the IconInc developments. Features from the original buildings will add a further sophistication, there will be an emphasis on wellbeing with indoor green spaces and a wellbeing suite, and a communal mezzanine level will also include shipping container style study pods.

Roomzzz Newcastle City extension

The Cross-laminated timber structure (which acts like a skeleton for the building) is now completely installed and, as a result, attention has turned to the envelope of the building. Over the coming months, with the 525 m2 super-structure in place and windows installed, Broadley will be working on the brickwork and roof coverings.

Work has also begun on the interior of the extension, electrics are being installed, floorings are being laid, and plaster is being applied to the walls. The interior décor of each apartment will include stylish herringbone parquet flooring, mood lighting highlighting split level ceilings, and a striking graphic headboard feature wall behind the bed.

2,200 man hours have been spent on the development to date.

Roomzzz York

The Roomzzz aparthotel in York is really taking shape now. The Cross-laminated timber frame is due to be completed by the end of January. Currently there’s just the third floor of the larger wing, and the mezzanine rooms above, yet to construct. Brickwork is going up fast and 60 percent of the windows have been installed.

Inside the build things are moving quickly as the empty timber boxes of the super-structure are transformed into final room layouts. Next wooden herringbone floors will be laid, first fix electrics will be installed and walls will be skimmed with plaster.

Broadley have put a staggering, 70,000 man hours into the project so far and it’s clear to see that all of their hard work is paying off. Watch a time-lapse of the work, which began last January, below:
