Walkers Arms Hotel Redevelopment
The existing hotel was destroyed by fire and our brief was to demolish and rebuild a new state of the art eco friendly Hotel Complex. Close collaboration between the Dean Group, Harrold & Kite Pty Ltd & Architects Folland & Panozzo ensured that a fast, & efficient construction was achieved whilst maintaining a rigorous standard and quality of finish. The new three story facility adopted solar panel technology for the Hot Water services & first floor lighting with solar panels installed in both the front and rear of the building. A 91,000 litre rainwater tank was installed beneath the carpark for rainwater harvesting and double glazed windows were used for both acoustic and thermal performance. State of the art C-Bus and audio systems are articulated throughout the complex to provide efficient and sophisticated audio, visual and lighting. The construction of the new complex was completed within 54 weeks and was delivered on time and within budget.
