The 110 bedroom Mercure Hotel, built within the centre of Edinburgh. Cidon Construction were appointed to construct the structural basement, transfer deck, pre-cast structure and core areas inclusive of a waterproof warrantied structure ready for the fit-out contractor.

Cidon’s package included the design and build of the permanent and complex works for a double level basement to provide a grade 3 waterproof environment, transfer structure and finished concrete solid wall precast structure.

There were a number of key elements which were instrumental in this award, for example, construction of deep basements within a city centre location and casting against adjacent structures, constructing in-situ concrete foundations, basements and transfer slabs; in-house expertise on installing pre-cast concrete frames integrated with bathroom pods and fast track construction techniques were used to meet a demanding programme.
