Guests attended an event to celebrate the team reaching the highest point of the new 13-storey £15 million hotel.
Due to be completed this September, the shell and core contract being undertaken by Cobham-based contractor Willmott Dixon is progressing at speed.
The new four star business hotel oversailing Aldgate station was designed by architects Dexter Moren and will host 270 guest rooms, two restaurants, a bar and fitness centre alongside 1600 sq. ft. of meeting and multi-purpose space.
John Connolly, Head of UK development for Dorsett Hospitality International said: “We are thrilled to have reached this milestone and are very much looking forward to opening this landmark property – a key step for Dorsett Hotels & Resorts’ ongoing expansion into the UK following the successful launch of Dorsett Shepherds Bush in June 2014.”
Speaking about the construction Roger Forsdyke, Managing Director of Willmott Dixon said: “We are delighted to be here today to mark a milestone achievement in the project programme. This project location has had its challenges but the team have met them with great innovation and flair. I am looking forward to staying in the hotel when it opens!”
Once waterproofed, the project will be handed over to the client for specialist contractors to complete the fit-out programme.
