Proposed redevelopment of the former Slatters Hotel located in Canterbury City Centre, in order to deliver a 131 bedroom Hilton Hotel, separate roof-top destination restaurant and ground floor retail space.
The site is located in an area of national archaeological and historical interest, with part of the existing buildings on site being Grade 2 listed, which are proposed to be repaired and refurbished to create the new ground-floor entrance to the hotel and roof-top restaurant.
Milestone Project Consultancy is responsible for the management and coordination of the project from its initial inception and through to planning, which was successfully obtained in August 2015, with a subsequent target start on site by the end of 2015.
Given the complexity and abnormal considerations on the project, numerous specialist consultants had to be appointed and managed, alongside close interface with statutory authorities and consultees, including English Heritage.
Interface and liaison with Hilton was also required in order to ensure the design adhered to their strict brand standards, and operational compliance.
The rooftop restaurant is also intended to provide a fine dining and events space for approximately 80-100 covers, plus private dining space, which we hope in itself, will become a destination venue for Canterbury.
