Bouygues UK has bagged contracts to build two luxury hotels in east London totalling £47m, marking its expansion “beyond [its] traditional public sector” market.
The contractor won a £20m contract to build a 10-storey luxury hotel for boutique chain CitizenM as part of the first phase of the ‘Shoreditch Village’ mixed-use development (pictured).
The site for the 211-room hotel is bordered by King John Street, Holywell Lane and New Inn Yard.
Bouygues has also bagged a £26.6m contract to build Gansevoort Hotel Group’s luxury hotel at 45 Curtain Road.
It comprises six suites, 24-hour fitness facilities and more than 6,000 sq ft of meeting and event space.
Bouygues UK managing director for construction in London and the South-east Arnaud Bekaert said: “We set out our plan five years ago to expand our work in a range of new sectors and beyond our traditional public sector market here in London.
“After a lot of hard work… Bouygues UK is recognised as the natural partner for clients across the boutique hotel, high-end residential, commercial development and public sectors.”
He added: “Our collaborations with both the CitizenM group and Michael Achenbaum – the man behind the renowned Gansevoort Hotel Group – reinforce this.
“As a global brand, Bouygues has a reputation for delivering high-quality buildings around the globe.
“From a personal point-of-view, I feel our latest contract wins show that we are now also firmly established as a contractor of choice in the UK.”
