Ibis, Gloucester

Designed by Leach Rhodes Walker Architects, the modern 127 bed hotel development is located just outside Gloucester City Centre, on Corinium Way. The site is sloping and in addition to the 5 storey hotel building there is ‘on-grade’ parking on site for residents and guests. The hotel has good transport links to both the M5 and Gloucester Docks & Quays area.

The 5-storey hotel building, built by McGee is constructed on piled foundations with a suspended reinforced concrete ground floor slab and vented sub-floor void to provide gas protection. The superstructure is of concrete cross-wall construction over an in-situ concrete transfer slab at first floor with 180 think reinforced concrete superstructure slabs spanning between cross-walls. The frame design was carefully detailed to enable the pre-fabrication of wall and slab reinforcement to reduce fixing time and optimize the program.

Detailed ground-modelling and cut-and-fill analyses were undertaken to optimise the building and car-park levels, and it was necessary to divert an existing deep sewer running across the site of the proposed new building. Part of the site had been used for ‘land-fill’ and ground investigations were undertaken to establish the extent as well as categorizing the material and advising on remediation. 

The building was completed in 2012.
