Case Study Snoozebox - Silverstone Circuit
Snoozebox offers transportable, temporary hotel accommodation that can be delivered to an event and be fully operational within 48 hours. Rooms arrive on trucks and are housed in shipping containers, which are craned into place. The cleverly designed contemporary rooms have an en-suite wet room, double bed, climate control, power sockets, flat screen TV, free WiFi and are serviced daily with towels and toiletries.
Snoozebox required a semi-permanent structure at its portable hotel at the Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire. Snoozebox awarded temporary structures specialist Neptunus, a two-year contract to provide the additional space.
The Snoozebox rooms have already been on site at Silverstone - one of the world’s most famous motorsport venues – for over a year. When planning permission was extended, Snoozebox sought to enhance its offering with a suitable semi-permanent structure to form a reception, catering and social area.
Neptunus provided an Evolution structure with partial mezzanine. This created a meet and greet and café area exclusive to hotel guests, which boasts an exterior terrace providing views of all the exciting action on the track.
Snoozebox chose Neptunus because it was impressed with its products, service and ability to provide a quick turnaround. From point of order to project handover it took just four weeks to deliver the temporary solution.
The Evolution is an ideal solution for Snoozebox’s temporary hotel at Silverstone because it possesses features that are normally associated with a permanent building. Equipped with insulated rigid wall panels, integrated rainwater guttering system and a new glulam wooden floor, the Evolution combines a quality feel with excellent insulation properties and enhanced sustainability credentials. All the materials used in the installation have been recycled from past projects. Furthermore after the two-year hire period, the temporary structure can be dismantled and returned to hire stock for future resale.
“The reception and catering facility will help to build a complete Snoozebox experience and we are delighted to be working with Neptunus,” said Gary Thomson, Chief Operating Officer, Snoozebox. “Neptunus will deliver a quality structure quickly and efficiently, providing our guests with a first class facility. We very much look forward to taking our partnership with Neptunus forward at Silverstone.”
