A Holistic Approach to Worker Accommodation

Our approach to the provision of worker accommodation is heavily influenced by the need to create spaces where people thrive.  Working away from home can be challenging for many, so at Hi West, it’s really important that we provide accommodation and facilities that provide comfort and practicality for our guests.

Practical Plans

We start every project with the same intent - to create environments where every detail has been thoughtfully considered and carefully planned. We firmly believe that a good night’s sleep is essential for a productive day’s work, so all our guest rooms are soundproofed and have blackout curtains. With many worker accommodation projects influenced by shift patterns, we understand that a peaceful place to rest is essential for all our guests. 

The layouts of our guest rooms are all meticulously planned - right down to the choice of bulbs in our bedside lights. Guests will find extensive storage in their room as well as space to work and space to relax. Bathrooms are equipped with satisfyingly powerful showers and ambient lighting. 

All of our guest rooms are located in low-rise buildings within close proximity to the main campus building that houses  reception, bars, restaurants, events spaces and a well equipped gym. Our sites also offer extensive parking as well as communal laundry facilities.

Social Spaces

We understand how difficult it can be when work requires people to live away from home, often for long periods of time. It’s therefore vitally important for us to create a social living community within our worker accommodation campuses. Our facilities include darts and pool tables as well as games machines. There are also large screens showing live sporting events and ample sports facilities that include indoor and outdoor gyms, multi-use games pitches and outdoor games.

To help facilitate social interactions, we run a comprehensive programme of activities that provide a wide range of opportunities for guests to socialise. Offering a broad choice of activities such as language lessons, sports teams and training sessions, concerts and quizzes, there is always something social to do on campus and an opportunity to meet new people as well as to develop skills and interests.

Fighting Fatigue

Recognising life on campus can bring specific challenges, we’re proud to provide plenty of initiatives to help guests fight campus fatigue. Onsite, guests can take advantage of chill out areas, an audio library, coffee shops, free wifi access and workstations complete with monitors and headsets. We even provide standing desks that encourage good posture.

Everything we do is carefully planned and thoughtfully designed to make our guests’ lives better whilst they’re with us. It’s this holistic approach that puts the Hi West offering head and shoulders ahead of the competition.
