John Sisk & Son completed a 233 bedroom extension and new executive lounge for the Hilton Hotel at Gatwick Airport. The new executive rooms increased the number of rooms to over 800, making it the largest airport hotel in Europe at the time.
This was John Sisk & Son’s second major hotel project for Hilton. We were appointed to the scheme early, allowing a four month preconstruction period. During this time we worked with the Design team, refining the detailing and design of the Hotel to enhance build efficiency, leading to programme and cost savings.
Our management team was able to bring to the project the knowledge gained from our company’s extensive experience of hotel construction. Many of the latest prefabrication methods were thus incorporated into the construction.
The project was completed two weeks early and our commitment to snag and defect free delivery meant that the hotel opened for business a week later.
