Hampton by Hilton D2 Dyce modular hotel construction

In Dyce, near the city’s airport, the first hotel (above) – completed in January 2017 – provides 155 bedrooms, 93 car parking spaces and ample cycle parking.

The second of the new hotels – completed in April 2017 –  was built in Westhill, on the site of a former blockworks building. It comprises 173 bedrooms, a fitness suite, a restaurant and nearly 200 car parking spaces. It features a large, landscaped green space to the front of the hotel, which is open to the public and provides a welcome change of view from the old blockworks shed.

Modular construction

These projects combined traditional construction methods with off-site fabrication via modular containers fitted out in China. These units house the bedrooms, which come complete with all the internal finishes, and are being delivered and installed on site within a four-week period.

Bedroom container arrives on site

We prepared the hotel sites in advance of the bedroom containers arriving, then completed the link-ups between the units. After the container contractor left the sites, we traditionally fitted out the ground floor restaurants, bars and reception areas. We also undertook the external cladding, roofing, car park construction and other external works.

The modular buildings were completed in a significantly shorter build-time, but with the usual high-quality finish as seen in other Hampton by Hilton hotels.

An expanded hospitality presence

The two new hotels are the result of an investment by international property developer Bricks Capital, which takes their investment in Scottish properties to date to £100million and adds more than 300 rooms to an increasingly competitive hotel market in and around Aberdeen.

They join Hampton by Hilton global presence of more than 2,000 hotels spread across 17 countries.

Between them, the two developments have created over 100 jobs in the area.
