The practice first became involved with hotel design in the early 1970’s providing structural design for Greenall Whitley which in time became the De Vere Hotel Group. Since that time, we have had a continuing role in the development of hotels, and have acquired a significant degree of expertise in the field including experience of new-build hotels, alterations and extensions to existing hotels and hotel refurbishments.
As a result of 40 years of developing hotel design experience, we have market leading knowledge of current practice, design methods and costs / time effective construction techniques. Having gained that depth of experience, we have been involved in the use of many alternative types of structural solutions for hotel construction.
Each type of hotel design and each site presents its own specific challenges, which influence the selection of the most appropriate design solutions for hotel construction. Each type of hotel design and each site presents its own specific challenges, which influence the selection of the most appropriate design solution. Frequently several options need to be explored before the most appropriate is selected.
We use our own experience of using different forms of construction to ensure that cost-effective structural solutions are adopted and that effective co-ordination between the design team is carried out.
