Anglo Holt Construction has completed its largest ever project with hotel giants Travelodge.

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - Anglo Holt Construction has completed its largest ever project with hotel giants Travelodge.West Bromwich-based Anglo Holt was awarded the contract by clients Merchant Place Developments to build a 219-bedroom Travelodge at Eastern Gate in Cambridge.

The Charities Property Fund provided forward funding for the project, which had a value of £8.3 million. The design and construction deal extends the company’s successful 13-year partnership with Travelodge, which has seen it complete 60 hotels, with a further two contracts currently in progress, worth a total of £205.2m.

The new hotel has a bar café and basement car park. Built on a brownfield site, the six-storey reinforced concrete and timber frame building has one MW photovoltaic installation on its roof.
Anglo Holt managing director Andy Elwell said he was delighted that the company had competed another Travelodge project.

“Travelodge Cambridge is the largest project we’ve handled on behalf of the company to date and it enables us to contribute further to the continued growth of Travelodge throughout the UK.
“Our ability to deliver hotels on time and on budget for Travelodge has been clearly demonstrated in the completion of 60 projects to date. Our capabilities as planning consultants, building designers and constructors have seen us rise to the challenge of completing many new build schemes but also the transformation of traditional, out-dated hotels into the highly successful Travelodge formula,” he added. 

The 62 UK Travelodge hotels, as far afield as Edinburgh in the north and Paignton in the south, include 5,552 bedrooms. The average contract length is 29 weeks, with an average value of £3.2m. Contracts worth a total of £13.5m currently in progress include Poole, and Hackney, London. The previous largest individual contract was the building of the £7.5m, 201-bed Travelodge at Manchester Airport, closely followed by a 200-bed hotel at Birmingham International Airport.

Tony O'Brien, UK development director for Travelodge Hotels, said: "Anglo Holt has been instrumental in helping us grow at the pace we have. Sixty two hotels is an incredible achievement and the speed at which they work enables us to get our hotels open quickly and filled with our customers."
