JJ Rhatigan has awarded a £1.2m contract to G&H Building Services for mechanical and electrical (M&E) installations for a Premier Inn in Brixton.
Equipment for air conditioning, heating and lighting will be installed at the 90-bed construction.
The project requires new floors to be added over a row of shops on Brixton High Street to accommodate the hotel facilities.
JJ Rhatigan UK contracts manager Niall Higgins said: “We have a long-standing and enviable track record developing hotels for some of the biggest global names in the sector, and this latest project underlines our capabilities.
“We have worked regularly with G&H Building Services and once again selected them to manage the M&E works because of their professionalism and ability to deliver to the highest standards.”
G&H pre-construction director David Davis (pictured) said it was his company’s second major scheme for Premier Inn, adding further to its long experience in delivering London-based leisure projects.
“We have been appointed because of our expertise delivering schemes in the capital that present unique challenges,” he said.
“It involves invasive work that will see us relocating and maintaining services from the shops below that include EE, Shop Direct and New Look – all very busy stores.
“Limited on-site storage facilities, small delivery areas with restricted access and highly populated areas like Brixton High Street require great experience, and we have a proven track record of managing successful ‘just in time’ delivery operations.”
Mr Davis added: “This is why we are regularly winning work of this calibre and growing as a business with work across the UK.”
