Wakemans secure £18m project

A Birmingham based construction consultancy has been appointed by Travelodge to work on four new hotels worth £18 million.

Wakemans will act as Tenant’s Agent for Travelodge on each of the properties which are due to open in 2016, including locations in London Finsbury Park, London Finchley, Bicester and Dover.

This comes after the firm worked alongside Travelodge to deliver their £100 nationwide modernisation programme.

Associate director for Wakemans Nigel Himpson says: “We are delighted to continue our long standing relationship with Travelodge on these four important developments.”

Wakemans are one of many firms benefitting from the recent growth of the UK construction industry, with figures from the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) predicting annual average growth of 2.5%.

Work on three of the properties has already commenced, with work on the Dover Travelodge due to begin soon.
