Cranes denote the rise of Glasgow hotel duo
January 20 2020
McAleer and Rushe have moved on-site with the delivery of 465 hotel beds in Glasgow as part of a redevelopment of the A-listed Custom House.
This will see the Clyde Street landmark refurbished to serve as the main entrance to the Clayton Hotel as well as a range of public spaces including a lobby, bar, meeting and conference facilities.
Split into two elements the plan centres on a 16 storey Dalata Clayton Hotel which will be joined by a fourteen storey Adagio Aparthotel.
In a statement, the contractor wrote: “Works on site are still focused on the construction of the core bases. These essentially are foundations on which sit the lift shaft and stairwells. These shafts or ‘cores’ are what you will see rise out of the ground over the next two months.
“The soft strip demolition works inside Custom House have now been completed and we are ready to start a new phase in the refurbishment of this listed building.”
The hotels were first proposed back in 2018 by Artisan Real Estate Investors and Sheppard Robson with Leach Rhodes Walker subsequently brought on board as delivery architect last year.
