Curtins were employed by the Princes Dock Development Company to provide civil and structural engineering services for this new 200 bed five storey hotel on the banks of the River Mersey. The site was over an old dock and complex piled foundations were required to provide a stable base for the new steel framed construction over.
In addition to accommodation the hotel also includes a leisure complex and swimming pool. The entrance lobby is covered by a glazed circular space frame fabricated in one piece from tubular steel members and providing an immediate wow factor to the hotel.
