• 133-bed hotel
• BREEAM ‘Very Good’
• Phased conversion
The project saw the conversion of an existing, outdated office block into a new 133-bed Travelodge hotel with bar café delivered in two phases – enabling works and main works.
The enabling works included asbestos removal and stripping the building back to its shell to enable additional detailed investigations of the concrete structural frame to be undertaken. As a result of the surveys, major strengthening works were undertaken to the concrete frame.
