Accor Hotel Group

Accommodating two hotel brands in a single tower

The Accor Hotel Group is building a new, 40-floor hotel in Melbourne CBD, which will house approximately 450 rooms split between the 3-star Ibis brand on the lower levels and 4-star Novotel brand on the upper floors within the single tower.

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff was involved initially to review and comment on the architectural feasibility/concept proposal for the hotel. Due to the constricted nature of the 850 m2 development site, we worked closely with the project architect to establish services plant and vertical infrastructure requirements while maximizing the usable area for the hotel. We were instrumental in discussions between the developer and the hotel operator in establishing a unique design framework for the project with common building services engineering design based on Accor guidelines for their 3-star and 4-star hotels. We also provide environmental consultancy for the planning framework for the project to ensure that the development not only complied with the Accor sustainability guidelines for sustainable development but also strict local council requirements.
