Sector: Hospitality Completion date: July 2020

Hotel construction in parallel with events campus expansion 

The hotel, along with a separate Courtyard by Mariott hotel, which Robertson is also constructing, will meet a demand for hotel rooms in Glasgow and at the Scottish Events Campus.  

The SEC, which generates £400m for the Glasgow economy is planned to be expanded, to build on the growing importance of conferences, exhibitions and live entertainment to Glasgow city region. This follows the success of the SSE Hydro venue, opened in 2013, which increased demand for hotel rooms in the area.  

This three-star Moxy Hotel gives guests further choice, catering for a younger demographic.  

The new hotels under construction in Glasgow will also increase accommodation options for delegates attending conferences at the Scottish Event Campus, in turn helping to boost the local and national economy. 

Constructing hotels to build a brand 

Robertson has completed construction of other Moxy Hotels, also for Vastint Hospitality, as this brand expands in the UK:
