A new Premier Inn at Stansted airport has opened for business 14 weeks earlier than originally scheduled.

Construction on the 303-room hotel by construction firm McAleer and Rush was completed earlier in the month. Officials from Premier Inn and Grove Developments said that the facility is already fully operational and saw its first customers check inn on 11 June.

The facility’s construction scheme was slated to last a full 54 weeks, although the project was completed in just 40 in anticipation of catering to the upcoming 2012 London Olympics, according to McAleer and Rush officials. The property boasts an “acoustic buffer zone” via its courtyard, according to officials from Whitbread, the brand’s parent firm.

The company’s head of construction Martin Magee said in a statement that finishing a yearlong project three months ahead of schedule was a challenge. He said that the Stansted Premier Inn had been particularly demanding and said the company wanted to thank Whitbread as well as Grove Development for being “straight forward” during the collaboration.

Likewise, Sinead Hughes said on behalf of Grove Developments that McAleer and Rush’s performance had gone beyond expectations. She added that the company had also finished a new Heathrow hotel several weeks ahead of schedule in February.
