Double Tree Hilton Hotel - Condition & Structural Surveys


Double Tree Hilton Hotel - Condition & Structural Surveys

Grant Thornton

RPS was appointed to complete condition and structural surveys and a cost estimation report for database access for potential purchasers.

RPS was commissioned to carry out a condition and structural survey of the Burlington Hotel and to provide a report which could be made available in a “data room” to inform prospective purchasers of the existing structural condition of the hotel. The Burlington Hotel, now the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, is located in Dublin 4 and is a detached 7-storey building on its own grounds. The original building was constructed in 1972. It was purchased by Hilton in 2013, facilitated by the RPS Building Survey.

The scope of the inspection, which included ancillary buildings and the car park, involved a full visual structural survey, which was carried out in accordance with the Institution of Structural Engineers guidelines. The external visual inspection was conducted using a hoist, harness and binoculars where required. Internal inspection of the bedrooms and all other principal rooms was also conducted.
