‘Sisk+Corus Modular Construction’, an alliance between John Sisk & Son Ltd and Corus Living solutions, has secured its first contract to build a 198-bedroom hotel in Glasgow for the hotel operator citizenM.
The alliance, with its pooled resources, enables the UK’s first ‘end-to-end modular construction’, whereby Sisk+Corus will build the hotel from initial construction to final fittings. John Sisk & Son Ltd pre-construction Director Robin Herron said the method brought “the lowest project cost, earlier completion, improved quality and building performance.”
Corus Living Solutions General Manager Richard Jones said: “Providing a solution that is designed, manufactured and constructed in the UK, Sisk+Corus also factors in cost and programme reductions to help minimise the risk associated with any construction programme and facilitates a quicker return on investment whilst guaranteeing standards.”
Work commenced at the end of June and is planned to take 44 weeks.
