The hotel sector is an important niche market in the UK and the HCD Group works closely with some of the most successful providers in the industry.
HCD operates across the full spectrum of accommodation standards, from budget hotels, to boutique venues right to the top end of the luxury market. Working for brands such as Holiday Inn Express, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton, Days Inn and Premier Inn, we have helped deliver over 50 projects in the £6-£10m range over the past decade. At the luxury end of the hospitality spectrum, we provided integrated consultancy services during the recent £80m refurbishment of the five-star Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane. Another recent five-star project was the refurbishment of the listed Mandarin Oriental Hotel overlooking Hyde Park.
HCD Group with its extensive experience in the Hotel sector, provided services for over 7,300 rooms within London during 2014.

HCD’s Group-wide expertise in the hotel sector is proving increasingly popular with clients as the buoyant market continues to buck the general trend in UK construction.
We have provided a range of Group services on over 400 projects for many of the world’s leading hotel chains. We are often appointed at the early stages of concept design to maximise the efficiency of the building, especially in terms of escape provision in case of fire. In this way we have learned the requirement and needs of the hotel and its future functionality.
The seeds of the Group’s current success can be traced back to our broad experience gained in Project Management and Employer’s Agent roles on hotel schemes. From this base, additional skills from around the Group have been added to the offering, so that now HCD’s hotel ‘package’ includes Building Control, Fire Safety Engineering, CDMC and Structural/Civil Engineering services.
“We treat HCD’s Building Control and Quantity Surveyor experts as an integral part of our hotel development team. HCD has been very, very helpful and supportive. They have been highly proactive, coming forward with solutions to the problems encountered, particularly on the challenging Soho project. We have found them good to work with, which has not necessarily been our experience with service providers on other projects!”
