SECC beds in

SECC beds in
Another day, another hotel, original proposals for a 17 floor hotel at the SECC have been downsized as the latest design for a Hilton Garden Inn is submitted to planning.

The partnership of Pavilion Developments Ltd and Macdonald Estates Plc with EPR Architects Ltd are pressing ahead with plans for the land adjacent to the mooted SECC Arena, a key venue for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Rising to nine stories, the £16million 179 bed hotel is clad in aluminium panels for a simple rectilinear form.  A chequer board glazing fenestration remains flush throughout the body of the building with upper floor windows punched out to act as a “frieze”.

A sequence of external uplighting and recessed downlights are being investigated to contribute to Glasgow’s lighting strategy.  The ground floor façade will incorporate recessed LEDs to provide a flush of light to side walls.
