Plans approved for landmark hotel in Greenwich

27th Apr 2020

Hydrock MRB are part of the team that have helped secure planning approval for a 300-bed Travelodge on Greenwich Peninsula in London.

Greenwich Council unanimously approved the proposal for this landmark building on the former O’Keefe site on Greenwich Peninsula, with praise for its distinctive design and striking appearance from the scheme’s architects, Mountford Pigott.

Hydrock MRB were initially appointed as MEP and sustainability consultant to provide planning stage support. Post planning, our appointment on the scheme, which rises up to 18 storeys, will involve Hydrock MRB leading the MEP design and acting as BREEAM Assessor while our London office is conducting site investigations and delivering the fire engineering design. The BREEAM target rating is set as ‘Excellent’.

The Greenwich scheme represents the latest stage of the wholesale redevelopment of the riverfront and will dominate Greenwich Peninsula’s Boord Street on a brownfield site next to the former East Greenwich Gas Works.
