The new facility is centrally located on King Street in Newcastle West, a commercial precinct within walking distance of the Newcastle transport interchange and Market Town Shopping Centre. Open to the general public, it is an ideal choice for value conscious business and leisure travellers offering contemporary accommodation in a convenient CBD location.

One of the most important project considerations was the level of detailing and finishes. Having completed the HIEX at Macquarie Park, Taylor were able to leverage off this experience to understand the client’s expectations and provide a dedicated Quality Assurance resource to ensure a quality build was achieved.

The Taylor team took out the Judges’ Award for the ‘Best Use of Glass’ for the successful delivery of the new Holiday Inn Express Hotel (HIEX), a tribute, at least in part, to the unique frosted glass ensuite walls and frameless internal doors featured in each room. Complementing the notable elements of glass, the hotel also has high quality pre-cast concrete and extensive glazed facade elements all of which impressed the MBA Judges.
