A three storey Hotel building comprising 140 bedrooms and 4 suites on the upper floor with hotel facilities on the ground floor.
The ground floor Health & Leisure centre features a 17-metre swimming pool and gymnasium with a spa and aerobics room at 1st floor level.
Construction is generally load bearing blockwork with precast hollowcore floors, slate pitched roofing and asphalt flat roofs; the external wall finish is self coloured render with stone cladding at ground floor level. The hotel function rooms have high acoustic insulation properties to reduce noise emissions to the rooms above.
Due to the tight programme of works, a number of initiatives were taken to fast track the project most notably, supply of bathroom pods (fully finished bathrooms delivered from Italy). Also the roof design was altered in association with the project designers to allow prefabrication at ground level and lifted complete to the roof level.
