Travelodge, Chester

Client: Gorse Stacks Rufus Limited
Project Value: £6,307,500
Architect: Watkin Jones
Practical Completion: July 2010

This scheme included the construction of a 160 bedroom hotel plus two retail units and associated external works.

An extremely tight site on the busy Northgate roundabout posed logistical problems for the design and build team.

Construction followed a complicated Archaeological dig and foundation on a sloping site to support a steel framed in-situ concrete podium deck to support an upper timber frame structure.

The building finished internally included mechanical and electrical installation to Travelodge high standards.
