Celtic Manor Resort

Project Value: $250 Million

CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT

ZW Project Management Inc. was appointed Principal Contractor on this major U.K. resort expansion in 1997 and delivered the completed facility in 1999. The $250 million expansion to the Celtic Manor Hotel has transformed the resort into the largest hotel and conference centre of its kind in Wales and one of the finest facilities in the U.K. and Europe.

The 14-storey structure features an impressive lobby with six-storey atrium, 400 luxurious guest rooms including 32 suites, 29 meeting rooms, a 1,500 seat ballroom, a wide array of shops and restaurants, and a state-of-the-art leisure complex. It represents one of the most ambitious projects in the U.K. requiring the management of a large consultant team, more than 50 subcontractors, a construction workforce of over 800 workers and the fine attention to detail demanded by a five-star resort.

From the onset of the project, the client demanded that the mechanical, the electrical, the building management system, the communication services and the finishings all utilize leading edge technology. ZW Project Management Inc. faced the challenge of researching, procuring and incorporating the unique features that make the Celtic Manor Hotel a benchmark for other facilities. The Project required the management of a large consultant team, more than 50 subcontractors and a construction workforce of over 800 workers. ZW Project Management Inc. completed this project ahead of schedule.

Set in 1400 acres of panoramic parkland in the Usk Valley, known as the gateway to Wales, this resort features 2 hotels: a 5-star resort hotel and a historic 19th century manor house.

The Celtic Manor Resort features a range of facilities which include a comprehensive convention centre and exhibition hall, 31 function rooms, 5 restaurants and 334 rooms.
