Pro-invest Group makes its Holiday Inn Express hotels an attractive investment with Interface carpet tiles.
Boutique investment firm Pro-invest Group is currently working with InterContinental Hotels Group to roll out the Holiday Inn Express brand across Australia and New Zealand.
A Positive Effect
As part of the procurement process, Pro-invest considered local suppliers as well as some overseas suppliers from South East Asia.
“Interface has a well-established reputation in providing a product that is fit for purpose, makes commercial sense, is good for the environment, while being aesthetic and sustainable,” Kasselis said. “We collaborated with Interface’s Sydney office and our interior designer Joseph Pang to select carpet designs for our public areas and guestrooms.”
A carpet tile that calls to mind the unmistakable movement and rhythm of the ocean, Interface’s Net Effect collection is a common sight in Holiday Inn Express Hotels in the region as Joseph’s team have used it in every hotel. Net Effect is made from 100 per cent recycled yarn, which is partly made up of fishing nets collected by locals in small fishing villages in the Philippines, Cameroon and Indonesia through our Net-Works initiative.
A collaborative project in partnership with the Zoological Society of London that began in 2012, this inclusive business model tackles several problems at once: fishing nets are removed from coastal environments, reducing marine plastic that wreaks havoc on marine life; local families earn a fair wage for the nets they collect; community banks, set up by Net-Works, provide financial services to local families; while the next generation learns the value of taking care of the environment.
Our Net Effect carpets are made of a 100% recycled nylon yarn containing reclaimed ghost fishing nets from our Net-Worksprogramme. Like every other Interface collection, they are carbon neutral across their complete life cycle.
Mix & Match
The interior design theme created by Joseph Pang Design Consultants for Holiday Inn Express isn’t the standard corporate hotel design. They have developed a bold mix and match style – a reaction to the overuse of minimalism and perfectly matching interiors.
For Pro-invest, Interface flooring is an important part of the Holiday Inn Express brand in Australia. According to Kasselis: “Our guests are exposed to the Interface flooring product throughout their journey at the hotel, as they progress from the lobby to their rooms, through to the meeting and conference spaces. The look, feel, and overall quality of the flooring product contributes to the overall image of Holiday Inn Express hotels.”
