Client: RHH Newark Limited
Banks Long Lead: Daniel Garfoot
The Brief: In 2019, the derelict, Grade II listed Robin Hood Hotel in Newark received an investment of £6.6 million to be redeveloped into a new 66-bedroom Travelodge hotel with three commercial units on the ground floor. The project is designed to re-invigorate the local area, providing conservation-led repairs while retaining the building's existing historic facade.
The Travelodge hotel is predicted to generate up to 70 new jobs and provide tourists with easier access to popular destinations such as the Sherwood Forest, Newark Castle and the National Civil War Centre.
Banks Long & Co Solution: Retaining the historical heritage of the Robin Hood Hotel was a key priority, and Banks Long & Co consistently negotiated between contractors, Historic England and the local planners to deliver this project whilst retaining the Grade II listed facade.
Results: The hotel was completed in March 2021 and handed over to Travelodge later that month, along with the three retail units. Banks Long & Co have managed this process from the inception of the scheme through project management and delivery, providing invaluable continuity to the client throughout the project.
