The project comprised the re-build of a 95 bedroom block following damage from a fire and was an extension to the existing hotel.
The project adopted a light gauge steel frame/volumetric modular form of construction in order to re-build the bedrooms as quickly as possible. Modular was adopted for all areas including bedrooms, bathrooms, corridors, stairs, plant and ancillary areas. All fixtures, fittings and equipment were incorporated within the bedroom/bathroom modules prior to site delivery including case goods, beds and artwork.
The construction period was seven months and comprised wider remedial works, often intrusive and involving M&E shutdowns to the rest of the ‘live’ hotel.
The project also involved direct liaison and reporting to the loss adjuster.
