We are pleased to announce that K Systems have been selected as one of the chosen suppliers for the new build of Park Hotel, located in the seaside town of Paignton on the coast of Torbay in Devon.
Fragrance Group is a property developer with a presence across three continents, Asia, Australia and Europe, each comprising of their own project portfolios. The Group’s latest activities includes a multi-million-pound investment in Torbay, with the signing of contracts to build two new hotels in Paignton. The contracts, signed with Midas Construction, are to develop the sites of the former Park Hotel and Lighthouse club.
The sites, just a few metres apart on Esplanade Road on Paignton seafront overlooking Paignton Green, are two of the four acquired by the Fragrance Group. The others are the sites of the former Palace Hotel and the old Corbyn Head Hotel.
Planning permission to redevelop all four sites was granted in 2019 following the submission of plans by Torquay architects Kay Elliott, an international studio of highly imaginative architects and designers who specialise in hospitality and destination projects around the world, with a project portfolio covering twenty countries.
The new Park Hotel development replaces the previously closed Park Hotel into a new £14million, four-storey, 161-bedroom seafront hotel. This project will result in the modernisation of the existing site, with a significantly improved hotel and leisure facility – the perfect example of a substantial tourism investment.
This project will feature our K Systems Mineral TC2 render onto a Rock Mineral Wool EWI system as well as our Mineral TC2 render only solution. This system generates exceptional performance and provides the highest levels of fire resistance and non-combustibility. Our Rock Mineral Wool system is suitable for new-build or refurbishment projects possessing excellent environmental properties containing no gases with ODP or GWP.
To meet the aesthetic requirements of this project the hotel will support our Mineral TC2 finish, delivering a hydrophobic surface making the render weather resistant and low maintenance.
