Contractors appointed for new Hilton Birmingham venue

The contractors set to build a new Hampton by Hilton hotel in the Midlands have been named.

Balfour Beatty subsidiary Multibuild will build the new Birmingham venue, which will see it turn a 17-storey office block into a hotel, reported Inside Media.

The new venue, which will include 285 bedrooms, is expected to be Europe's largest Hampton by Hilton.

Lee Bailey from Chignal Consultancy, Office Village's project manager, said: "For the Hampton by Hilton project we came to Multibuild with a budget and the brand specification to see if they could make it commercially viable."

Earlier this year, Hilton hotels across the country turned off their lights as part of its efforts to celebrate Earth Hour 2011.

The event, which saw more than a billion people around the world support energy conservation, was adhered to by hotels in a number of Hilton brands, including Hilton Hotels & Resorts, DoubleTree by Hilton, Embassy Suites Hotels, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Hotels and Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts.
