Hotels, by their very nature, have to be versatile in order to appeal to a broad range of customers.

Some guests want to stay for leisure and will expect facilities to make their break pleasurable. Others will want to use the same hotel for business either to hold meetings, or to stay whilst away from home for work and will require facilities such as meeting rooms and internet access. Ensuring that a hotel has something for everyone is where we excel.

People’s expectations of their hotel will be largely dictated by how much they are paying for their stay, and we have designed and created many hotels ranging from low budget properties to high quality luxury sites. Our hotel clients include Accor Group, Crowne Plaza, Hilton, Holiday Inn, Novotel, Marriott and Travelodge. For these and others we have worked on new builds, refurbishments, extensions and conversions.

Creating sustainable hotels
One key aspect that has had to feature in all hotel developments, however, is the technology and forethought involved in making those hotels sustainable whilst delivering value for money.

Our teams work diligently to ensure that planning applications are strong by carrying out detailed assessments and feasibility studies, taking into account local and national planning laws, the local environment and local economy. These assessments and others – such as site analysis and technical studies – are used to inform viable planning applications and highlight areas that can be made more economical or run more efficiently.

Specialist, local teams
Our teams of consultants are based in local offices but draw on extensive experience from our global expert staff. We always look for ways to harness new technology in our work to achieve greater speed and efficiency, whilst creating more sustainable buildings.

We build hotels in which people want to stay and do business in, and where employees are happy and comfortable to work. We work closely with all teams to deliver hotels that will last a lifetime.
