Balfour Beatty has secured a £121m contract from Grove Developments to construct an 18-storey hotel, leisure and apartment complex on the North Greenwich Peninsula, London.
As per the deal, Balfour Beatty will design and build the 452-room hotel along with 100 serviced apartments.
The contract will also see Balfour Beatty carry out hard and soft landscaping works designed to create access to the nearby O2 Arena.
After completion, the hotel is expected to secure a BREEAM Excellent rating.
Green design features of the building include the use of photovoltaic panels and a rainwater harvesting system, which will lower the facility’s energy consumption and reduce demand on mains water.
Balfour Beatty said all hotel and apartment bathrooms will be built offsite to reduce construction time on site and lower carbon emissions by minimising the volume of lorry movements.
Work on the project is expected to commence in the next few weeks and complete by mid-2015.
Balfour Beatty chief executive officer, Andrew McNaughton said that the company will apply sustainable construction methods.
Earlier in July 2013, Balfour Beatty secured a contract from Ashall Property to construct a £11.7m Aloft Hotel.
To be built on the corner of North John Street and Dale Street in Liverpool’s city centre, the project will transform the Royal Insurance Building into a 116-room design-led Aloft Hotel.
