Our team is currently completing work on the Design and Construction of a new Travelodge Hotel at Linthouse Point in Govan, Glasgow.
The hotel, which is located in close proximity to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, will offer 60 ensuite rooms providing affordable accommodation with excellent transport links to the city centre.
The Hotel also provides a guest dining room and commercial kitchens for meal preparation.
Construction comprises a timber kit with a brick facade and tiled roof. The foundations are a concrete slab with CHD piles on contaminated land. Given the condition of the land, a gas membrane was utilsied to contain any ground gasses.
As a Client, Travelodge stipulate a high technical spec with a highlight on fire engineering and acoustics. Our Team utilised this specification to develop a cost effective design with the Design Team. This design also enabled programme savings which means we are on schedule to complete one month ahead of the agreed contract programme. This means that the entire build time will be 48 weeks from a standing start. To achieve this improved, construction lean programme we worked in collaboration with Travelodge UK, Project Management firm Baqus, the Design Team, and our specialist supply chain, to draw on the combined knowledge and shared experiences of all parties and produce the most cost effective and efficient solution for delivery.
The finish is of a high standard throughout and our robust Quality Control procedures have ensured that we have achieved the required levels of quality.
The Travelodge build has been delivered while the surrounding businesses, including a nursery school, remain operational and the adjacent residences are fully occupied. Our Project Delivery Team has therefore implemented exhaustive measures to limit the disruption caused to residents and adjacent building users. This has included continuous monitoring of noise, dust and vibration levels as well as the implementation of a robust Traffic Management Plan to limit and control vehicular movement in and around the site.
