Ogilvie Construction has secured the contract to construct the new AC by Marriott hotel in Glasgow for Chris Stewart Group
Work has begun on the 245-bed AC by Marriott hotel, which will be part of a £100m mixed-use development to transform the northeast corner of Glasgow’s George Square.
Donald MacDonald, managing director of Ogilvie Construction, said: “We are delighted to be working with CSG to deliver their vision for a new high-quality hotel in the centre of Glasgow.
“Our team brings unrivalled specialist knowledge of the hotel and leisure sector and we look forward to delivering successfully another first-class destination in the city.”
Tim Currie, project director at Chris Stewart Group, added: “Located in the heart of Glasgow city centre the new AC by Marriott hotel is an exciting and highly visible development, which needs a careful and considered approach to the construction phase activities, and in Ogilvie we have found a partner with whom we can work collaboratively and confidently with to deliver a building that we can all be proud of.”
Lifestyle-led destination in Glasgow
The new hotel is the first stage in the realisation of CSG’s vision to deliver an experience and lifestyle-led destination in the heart of the city, skirting the Merchant City and Queen Street station. The scheme will also create contemporary new homes at Love Loan with a focus on innovation and low carbon living.
