This project entails a complex mix of new and old in the form of modern concepts being aesthetically blended with the refurbishment of a listed building. The development accommodated a luxury hotel and bank which stands as a two storey building and also includes a basement and underground car park.
The 164 bedroom, five star hotel, was constructed in one of the City Centre’s best known listed buildings and the project involved the obligatory retention of facades and the complex construction of a double basement using a secant piling wall.
The completed Westin Hotel incorporates leisure facilities, dining rooms, bars and a business centre with ten conference rooms. In addition, the listed Banking Hall at 5 College Green was faithfully restored as a Banqueting Hall to its 1863 condition. The contract also incorporated the completion of facilities for AIB Bank which included new regional offices and a new retail bank outlet.
