Sisk bags ВЈ43m T5 hotel job

John Sisk & Son has won a ВЈ43m contract to build a Hilton Hotel near Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport.

The 80-week contract to build a 350-bedroom hotel with pool and gym facilities began at the end of May and is due to be completed by December 2010.

The build required consultation with the Environment Agency because of proximity of the Poyle Channel which runs through the middle of the site, and further considerations had to be made as a result of the nearby airport.

Les Nicholls, western region director at Sisk said: “We have constructed a number of Hilton hotels previously, so we knew the level of detail expected. The design was adapted to suit the challenges the site.”
