South Hedland 4-star hotel to open this year

130822 South Hedland Hotel - TP VIEWSouth Hedland’s first four-star hotel is expected to be completed and open for business by the end of this year.
The 120-room, five storey hotel will overlook South Hedland’s town square and be built by developer Hickory Group using modular pieces constructed offsite to save time.
Regional Development and Lands Minister Terry Redman launched the project on March 1 and said the hotel was a key initiative in revitalising South Hedland into a modern town.
“The hotel will become a focal point for South Hedland and will include a restaurant and conference facilities overlooking the new main street and town square,” Mr Redman said.
“The project will also stimulate tourism and increase employment opportunities in the town.”
Architects Fender Katsalidis designed the hotel and have previously designed projects, such as Melbourne’s Eureka Tower, which is one of the world’s tallest residential buildings.
Minister Redman said the Hickory Group would fabricate 90 per cent of the hotel offsite using its modular construction method.
“This will deliver the hotel up to 50 per cent faster than traditional building methods and at a lower cost, while minimising material and energy waste,” he said.
Hickory has used modular construction in several Pilbara developments in the last 12-months, including a Port Hedland apartment block that went up in four days and another six-storey residential building in South Hedland.
The hotel will be located on the corner of Wise Terrace and McLarty Boulevard and face onto South Hedland’s town square and amphitheatre.
Construction is expected to begin in April with the hotel open for operation by December 2014.
