The Holiday Inn Hotel development at Colney Fields, St Albans is a 3-storey, 86-bedroom hotel with conference and restaurant facilities. The site is landscaped and provides parking space for 99 cars.
Floor depths for this steel-framed building are minimised by using cell beams to integrate services and structure and by placing corridor beams within the slab depth.
Linking to the nearest public sewer 300m distant has required careful coordination with all utilities and highway bodies to ensure a workable solution.
This project is due to start on site in May 2008.
