Gill Street Motel
A new motel for New Plymouth is currently under construction which includes 31 units, a manager's apartment and on site car parks, over three levels. Chris Bell Construction and Project Management Ltd are the lead contractors and the build involves removing an existing building which was beyond repair and the complete upgrade of an existing one. The existing building is to be converted into studio rooms, a number of which will have mezzanines. One of the main design elements is that the existing building structure and materials are to be retained and showcased within the interior. The project is scheduled to be completed mid 2017 just in time to welcome the fanatical supporters following the British and Irish Lions tour of NZ.
