F3GROUP acted as Construction Manager on the 13-storey Crowne Plaza hotel located on London Albert Embankment, adjacent to the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel. The original office building on the site, Wah Kwong, was vacant for a number of years.
Operating under a franchise agreement with Cannon Corporate UK, the new hotel will have 142 guest rooms and a restaurant overlooking the River Thames.
There were a number of variable rooms, consisting of Standard and Club finishes and junior and senior suites.
The scheme provides:
- 142 bedrooms
- two basement levels
- one restaurant overlooking the Thames
- new roof terrace with sky bar/leisure area, made accessible via an external panoramic lift
The new roof terrace was made accessible via an external panoramic lift.
The works were procured with a bespoke construction management form of contract to enable an overlap of design and construction activities to suit the client’s objectives and overlap with existing works on the project.
