This project consists of a new build, 129 bed Holiday Inn hotel, with conference facilities and a large rooftop restaurant giving views across the airfield. The building is constructed using a steel frame and concrete floors, with bathrooms being pre-fabricated off-site. The facade design takes many cues from the aviation industry, with flying overhangs and steeply raked glass used to create an impression of movement and flight.
This hotel forms an important part of the redevelopment of London Southend Airport as a new destination for european flights’
