The aim of the project was to develop an innovative modular hotel watercraft. The adopted assumptions are the development of 3 prototypes of floating hotels depending on river conditions. The project is a response to the growing demand for attractive and unusual hotel spaces in city centers. The project was implemented for 24 months from 09.2018 to 08.2020 and covered 4 stages. Industrial research (stages 1 and 2) concerned the development of the design and construction of prototype vessels along with the development of a system of basic functionalities for intelligent building management. It was also planned to develop a low-energy building so that the energy demand was minimal. The challenge was to develop a modular structure that would allow for a low draft of the object and the possibility of multiple assembly and disassembly. Thanks to the above-mentioned functionalities, it will be possible to expand the spectrum of possible locations for hotel units, practically on every river basin, and thus open the hotel market to unprecedented solutions. Stage 3 and 4 concerned the verification of the developed construction technology during tests in real conditions. These stages allowed for the improvement of the prototypes and the final confirmation of obtaining the adopted design assumptions. The results of the research are the basis for using the results in the own business of the WOTEL company. The newly developed structures, which are an innovation on at least a national scale, have been included in the Applicant's offer and will be manufactured in Poland. Thanks to the implementation of the project, the Applicant has become a precursor on the market of vessels in the low-energy model. The target group of the project are investors interested in investing in hotel services in attractive locations in city centers and individual customers who will use the votels produced and operated by the company after the project is completed.

The project consists in the development of an innovative, modular building with its foundation. The modernized technology of producing a new product is based on the production of single, fully-finished modules in the factory. The most important aspect of modularity is mobility, which enables the transport and construction of buildings anywhere around the world, and, if necessary, non-invasive demolition and relocation. Stage 1 and 2 concern industrial research - development of a modular structure and foundation. Stage 3 is the testing of the constructed prototypes in real conditions. Newly developed constructions constitute innovation on a global scale and will be included in the Applicant's product offer. Thanks to the implementation of the project, the Applicant will become a precursor on the market of mobile and quick-to-assemble buildings with a wide range of functionalities. The target group is: authorities of countries in crisis, investors interested in building a hotel, municipalities, city boards.
