World’s first Hampton by Hilton adjoining a racecourse opens
Recently, the Hampton By Hilton located within Hamilton Park Racecourse opened its doors. Princess Anne attended the opening ceremony and inaugurated the hotel. It is noteworthy that the hotel is built with prefabricated modules and the world’s first Hampton By Hilton in a racecourse. Robertson was the general contractor for the constructional engineering of the hotel, and CIMC Modular Building System Co., Ltd. (CIMC MBS) provided all building modules.
Hampton By Hilton is a brand of chain of hotels trademarked by Hilton Worldwide. Currently, it has a global portfolio of 1,900 hotels. The newly opened hotel is the first property to adjoin the racecourse in its history.
Hampton By Hilton Hamilton Park is a single four-floor modular building: the first floor is traditional steel-structure public spaces for lobby, restaurants and parking lot and a small number of guestrooms; the second to the fourth floors are 112 rooms built with 60 units of prefabricated modules. CIMC MBS shipped all modules in November 2018 and completed the assembly and erection at the end of July 2019. The building layout, decoration design and material selection of the hotel were similar to those of Hampton By Hilton D2 Business Park, a modular hotel built and delivered by CIMC MBS at Aberdeen City, Scotland. The newly open hotel is another classic standard and modular building masterpiece of Hampton By Hilton.
Vivien Currie, CEO of Hamilton Park Racecourse – the owner of the property, said at the opening ceremony that “the Racecourse improved a lot after Princess Anne’s visit, and it gave me the great honor to show Her Royal Highness around the new hotel and introduce the unique features. We are delighted to be delivering this landmark project at Hamilton Park Racecourse and are certain it will deliver substantial benefits to the wider economy as well as enhance the racecourse’s reputation as a world-class sporting and hospitality attraction.”
“The reason that we won the bid for the provision of Hampton By Hilton Hamilton Park construction services is that on one side, Hilton Worldwide and CIMC MBS have already had satisfactory cooperation and jointly presented building masterpieces; on the other side, CIMC MBS has unrivalled core competitive edges. The appreciation of the property owner has shown greater recognition of our modular buildings”, said a responsible person of CIMC MBS, adding that the company’s modular building is the steel-structure modular building system that integrates structure, heat preservation, water and electricity and high-quality internal decoration and intelligent system. With over 90 percent of traditional building procedures completed in factories, CIMC MBS can maximally ensure the product quality and stability. Compared with buildings with same high quality but constructed with other building methods, the modular buildings of CIMC MBS embrace higher price/performance ratio.
