Under the brace of deals ISG will build a hub by Premier Inn hotel for TH Real Estate and is also main contractor for the first venture in the city by European operator, the Carlton Hotel Collection.
The new 145 bed Premier Inn hotel will be the second ‘hub’ site in Edinburgh and sees ISG transform the Hanover Buildings, in the city’s popular Rose Street.
ISG will comprehensively modernise and extend the former Edinburgh office building, adding a two-storey steel frame extension at roof level to increase the property’s total floor area by 5,000 sq ft.
The existing façade will be cleaned and repaired and curtain walling elements installed to enhance the building’s aesthetics and improve thermal performance.
The Market Street project for Carlton Hotel Collection will create a new four star 98-room boutique hotel.
Conversion works, on what is currently a gap site, will involve removing an existing building to allow construction of the seven-storey, steel frame building, which will feature natural sandstone, granite and zinc cladding elements to its façade and transform the cityscape.
Andy McLinden, ISG’s Scotland regional managing director, said that the latest wins further cemented the company’s growing reputation within the Scottish hotel sector.
ISG was recently revealed as the contractor for a multi-million upgrade at the Trump Turnberry resort.
