Jersey Waterfront Hotel
Residential and Commercial Development
It was recognised for many years that this location would be ideal for a new hotel overlooking the harbour, and various plans were put forward.
Considerable publicity, as well as resistance from the islanders, was generated; especially because of its prime position. Responding to local pressure and reaction from the Planning Committee, the initial design was changed dramatically to a different shape and height with different facades.
Finally, following several meetings, a revised application was submitted and planning consent was eventually granted in March 2000 for a 238 bedroom hotel.
SVM was involved with this hotel development since the first outline schemes were produced. Working alongside other professional team members, advice was provided by SVM on the design variations and infrastructure requirements.
SVM was commissioned by the new development company, Jersey Waterfront Hotel Development Limited, to carry out full performance specifications for the mechanical and electrical building engineering services. These included lift and public health services.
