Project Description

Radisson Blu

The Radisson Hotel is situated right in the very heart of Glasgow’s City Centre.

Location: Glasgow
Client: Radisson
Cost: £25m
Completion: 2004

This 8-storey, 4 star hotel comprises 250 luxury bedrooms, a health and fitness suite, conference facilities and an indoor swimming pool. Blyth & Blyth were originally employed by the Developer to provide full Civil/Structural and Building Services design and subsequently were novated to a design and build contractor. A number of special design features had to be integrated as the hotel itself was built over the City’s Central low level railway station.

The award winning building has become a Glasgow landmark.

Although the main project and construction was completed in 2005, our team has been involved in surveys of the building and carried out feasibility studies for contractors proposing building alterations and FM service providers in recent years.

Key challenges

Results

“Edrington have worked with Blyth and Blyth for the past 15 years on various projects throughout the group and during this time we have developed a close and trusting partnership. B&B offer the full range of engineering services, allowing us to have a one stop shop on engineering consultancy requirements, with the obvious benefits this brings. B&B experience in the whisky industry is second to none which has the double benefit of not wasting time and money having to explain the process each time. As said previously, Edrington have been working with B&B for more than15 years and with a fair wind this relationship will continue for a further 15 years and beyond.”
