New hotel to land at Birmingham Airport

Hilton Garden Inn hotel to be developed using innovative modular construction technique
Hilton has signed a franchise agreement with Castlebridge Hotels Birmingham Airport Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wylam Investments, to open a Hilton Garden Inn hotel at Birmingham Airport.

Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton said:

Often cited as the best place to invest in the UK outside of London, demand in Birmingham is growing fast. Infrastructure projects will only boost that growth and Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham Airport is in a terrific location—we can’t wait for it to open next year.

The 178-guestroom hotel will be built using modular build technology with main contractor Bowmer & Kirkland working in partnership with CIMC Modular Building Systems. The innovative construction technique uses cutting-edge technology to enable components of the new hotel – including guest rooms and corridors – to be manufactured in China and transported to site for final assembly, generating cost and time efficiencies. The same concept was used on Hampton by Hilton airport hotels in Aberdeen and Bristol.

Jenna Dienn, commercial director, Castlebridge Group said:

We are thrilled to be working in partnership with Hilton and Birmingham Airport to develop the new Hilton Garden Inn. We feel that this is a great time to be developing the hotel and restaurant due to the increase in passenger numbers and the airport expansion. The hotel is going to be a huge success and we look forward to the opening in the summer of next year.

Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham Airport will be situated next to the airport’s terminal building and joins more than 100 Hilton Garden Inn properties trading or under development in Europe and more than 20 Hilton airport hotels in the UK.

Jo Lloyd, commercial director, Birmingham Airport said:

We are delighted to be working with both Castlebridge and Hilton to develop this new hotel, which is an exciting addition to our hotel offering at Birmingham Airport. We have been experiencing record passenger growth as more and more passengers and airlines realise the enormous benefits of travelling from Birmingham and we are delighted to provide our customers with more choice and a great hotel product which we look forward to opening in 2018.

Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham Airport will be situated on Concorde Road, Birmingham Airport, Birmingham, B26 3QJ.
