A new 60 bed, £5 million ’boutique style’ hotel developed in the West Country is being helped towards gaining its green credentials with expert advice from Silcock Dawson’s Bristol office.

The firm has already provided mechanical and electrical advice along with client retained performance duties for the hotel, based in Congresbury, Bristol.

After detailed discussion with the client to achieve high quality style and aesthetics for the hotel, the firm was able to design all the mechanical and electrical elements to be tailored around those requirements. Technical advice on achieving Part L compliance was also given to the overall design team.

In recognition of the firm's expertise, Silcock Dawson has now been retained by the client to work on a further extension and is taking the same approach as with the previous project, which will ultimately add another 50 rooms to create 110 rooms overall.

With Silcock Dawson’s support and further technical advice, Cadbury House Hotel is looking to achieve a prestigious Green Tourism Board ’Gold Award’.

The Award scheme aims to reward leisure industry companies for considering and applying ’green’ ethics and policies. The Board is currently considering their application, but have indicated that Gold should be easily achievable, making it the first hotel in the South West to achieve the Gold Standard.
