Mansell awarded multi-million pound contract to convert Glasgow office tower into hotel

14 Oct 10 Mansell has been awarded a multi-million pound contract to convert an existing seventeen-storey office building into a Premier Inn hotel and reclad retail units at St Andrew House, West Nile Street in Glasgow for West Nile Construction. The overall value of the project is £27.5 million.

The contract involves the re-cladding of the outside of the two-storey retail podium, which will remain occupied during the project. The existing tower block will be refurbished and converted into a seventeen-storey, 210-bedroom hotel. 

Works will include removing the existing concrete cladding and providing a modern façade for the building. 

Work is due to start on site this month and complete in August 2012. 

This contract is the first office-block-to-hotel conversion project in Scotland to benefit from the Business Premises Renovation Allowances Scheme – a government initiative to encourage the conversion and renovation of empty properties in key areas. 

Mansell has recently completed a £2.8 million commercial development, Airbles House in Motherwell for West Nile Construction.
