Profile: Berkeley Hotel
This scheme comprised of an extension to the existing 5 star hotel to provide an additional 46 bedrooms within a courtyard setting. The works necessitated an extremely complicated foundation solution, involving piling at sub-basement level and threading new structural columns up through two levels to the ground floor.
The works also included the construction of a new seventh floor wing of the hotel behind a new mansard elevation, extending the lifts, the staircases and other facilities. This work was carried out whilst the hotel remained fully operational. Bruceshaw provided full cost management and project management services.
