New Glasgow Airport hotel poised to take flight

PLANNING approval has been granted for a 196-room DMA-designed hotel next to the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel at Glasgow Airport Business Park.

The new five-storey block will also feature public areas on the ground floor, as well as provision for 52 additional car park spaces.

Herbert Lui, DMA partner said, “Our client, Cairn Group, saw an opportunity to meet demand for guestrooms in this location with a high-quality new building. Our contemporary approach is sympathetic in scale and massing to the context. The building is on a site that already benefits from established infrastructure. The hotel will bring investment to the area and generate opportunities for local employment. It is also designed to meet the safe guarding requirements stipulated by Glasgow Airport authorities.”

DMA¬†explained that the design of the hotel seeks to inject ‘architectural interest, colour and scale’ through the use of a palette of ‘high-quality’ building finishes comprising reconstituted stone cladding, multi-coloured glazed curtain walls, and polyester powder coated metal cladding.¬†
