Hotels and leisure



Over the past five years, we have completed six Travelodges and eight Premier Inn Hotels across the UK. All developments were built using timber frame construction and range in size from low rise extensions to 6 storey frames built from steel and concrete podiums.


In addition to hotel developments we have also carried out the structural design work for new build and alterations to a number of properties in the leisure sector including the following projects:


  • New build golf cottages on the Isle of Mull

  • Refurbishment and extension of several fish and chip shops across the country
