Construction of a new build 240-bedroom Hampton by Hilton hotel on the site of the former immigration police station Saltire House and adjoining carpark, located within 5 minutes walking distance from the Edinburgh Airport terminal.
The building spans 6 storeys with all hotel services at ground floor level including bar & restaurant, meeting and conference space and hotel gym. Bedrooms above ground on levels 1 to 5. The contract works also included the construction of an adjoining 75 space car park beside the hotel.
We successfully accelerated delivery of the project to handover to the client 2 months ahead of programme thus allowing the hotel to take advantage of the peak Christmas period.
The project began as a 175-bed hotel however a further planning application was submitted during construction for an increased 240-bed hotel and successfully approved.
The building structure is an in-situ concrete frame on piled foundations and the façade constructed from Kingspan Quadcore Karrier panels, dressed in Alucobond Cladding with infill curtain walling panels.
