WFBA have been celebrating news that the construction of the 11 storey, 152 room hotel with under croft car parking, will start in November 2017. Working to designs by Maidenhead Architects SKDdesign, WFBA Director Nick Groves says that once opened in the spring of 2019, it will be the 20th hotel project for which the company has provided consultancy services.
“Since April 2016 we have been looking at design options and assisting with obtaining planning permission, going thorough design development and producing final information for tender and construction. Our team has used 3D modelling techniques to collaborate with the design and construction team in line with the principles of BIM. Our experience with Travelodge enables us to support the proven formula that works for the successful group, and its team of architects and construction management team,” said Nick Groves. “We are pleased to provide a vital link in the further expansion of this successful hotel chain.”
Hampshire based Management Contractor DNA IC Limited have been coordinating the design and build process on behalf of CHG Property Developments Ltd and will be building the new addition to Portsmouth’s skyline.
