Forum Secure EV Charging Station Ahead of Hotel Extension in Cornwall

We're supporting the planet with eco-friendly energy

Forum Contracts are delighted to have been awarded the opportunity to construct a new EV charging station in Bodmin, Cornwall. The scope consists of; groundworks and banking to the existing car park and backland, aswell as the installation of multiple docking chargers and canopy (see visual below). Overseeing the project and operations within in the South West is Operations Director, Justin Penketh.


Being located 247 miles from our head office we ensure to act upon decreasing our carbon footprint which is monitored and assessed in compliance with our sustainable strategy. The project will also be run on a paperless* basis, due to our new tablet sign in/out system containing site files such as RAMS, toolbox talks, MRS and MSRA and all other relevant documents. 

Continuing with our reputable CSR throughout the project, we will be providing opportunities to local labour and sub-contractors. Full commitments will be made to our social, environmental and economic impacts as we positively contribute within the construction industry.

Upon completion of the EV charging stations, Summer 2022 will see the 30 bedroom extension of the newly built Holiday Inn Express. The hotel is a franchise of Holiday Inn Express® and is the first of its kind in Cornwall.

Its location at the halfway point of the A30 between Exeter and Penzance, makes it a handy stop-off for a wide range of both leisure and business travellers. Completing the original fit-out of the 71-bedrooms and commercial areas in 2019 our client willingly handed over the new build and fit-out of the extension.

Located a stones throw away from the hotel, you’ll find the busy Victoria Services. Inside stand 10 separate retail units with a shared food court area. Forum were involved with two of the 6,000 sq ft units fitting out a new Co-op grocery food store and the stripping out of a WH Smiths installing a new mezzanine floor.
