Radisson Blu Hotel Tops Out at East Midlands Airport

Published: 31st March 2011 14:29

Commercial property company MAG Developments hosted a "topping out" ceremony this week, to mark the completion of the highest point in the structure of its new £22-Million, five-storey, Radisson Blu hotel at East Midlands Airport.

At the ceremony, the Azure Property Group - which will operate the hotel under The Rezidor Hotel Group's Radisson Blu brand - also announced the appointment of Daniel Keane as General Manager of the 218-bed hotel; and that it has agreed a deal with MAG Developments to take 1500 sqft of office space at Pegasus Business Park in Castle Donington for back of house functions, plus recruitment and training.

Daniel Keane, said:

"It is great to see the hotel reach this important milestone - the Radisson Blu East Midlands Airport will be one of the premier hotels in the region with first class facilities and the finest conference and meeting facilities in the area, thus supporting both business travellers and local businesses alike."

The full service hotel, which includes eight executive suites, restaurant, bar and leisure facilities has also been designed to be highly energy efficient. It has been awarded the highest ever BREEAM rating for a commercial hotel, scoring 76.17% - well above the 70% ‘Excellent' benchmark on the BREEAM scale used to assess a building's environmental performance.

Speaking at the ceremony, David Roberts, MAG Developments' Property Development Director said:

"This project to deliver one of the UK's greenest commercial hotel developments is a huge step forward both for passengers and for the airport itself as a business destination. We are delighted that the build team has reached this significant milestone and look forward to celebrating the next one when the hotel opens this autumn."

Brad Miller, Managing Director East Midlands Airport said:

"We are delighted that the hotel is taking shape and the structure is now complete. Having a four star hotel on site is a huge step forward for the airport and one that will benefit passengers, local residents and businesses alike. We are equally proud of the environmental qualities of the hotel, which fit with our own carbon reduction targets, making it one of the ‘greenest' hotels in the UK."

The hotel reaffirms Rezidor's position as one of Europe's leading airport hotel operators with 27 hotels (7,096 rooms) currently in operation and a further 3 hotels (938 rooms) in the development pipeline.
