New Travelodge to be built by Wynne Construction

The announcement marks a further milestone for the expanding North Wales-based construction company, which is currently extending operations into new sectors, including hotels.

The 73-bedroom Travelodge with car park will form part of the £25m Rhyl Waterfront regeneration scheme.  Wynne Construction will build it for developer Ion Development, on the site of the former Sun Centre on West Parade. 

Alongside the hotel will be a Marstons pub and restaurant catering for 150 customers.

Enabling works to clear and prepare the Travelodge site took place in December,  with construction starting in early January 2018. 

During construction, a total workforce of around 300 will be employed to build the Travelodge.  Under Wynne Construction’s policy of employing local supply chain partners, contractors from the surrounding area will be hired where possible.

The three-storey hotel will have a render finish and will include a ground floor reception, bar and breakfast restaurant area.  

"Hotel construction is a new departure for us and is part of our growth plan. Were already looking at further design and build projects in this sector. "

The Travelodge is the second part of the £7m scheme on the Waterfront development awarded to Wynne Construction by Ion Development, which earlier in 2017 completed the first phase of refurbishment works to the Pavilion, and converted the Sky Tower into a light beacon.

The contract was awarded under the North Wales Construction Framework.

Founded in 1926 in Rhuddlan, Wynne Construction relocated its headquarters to Bodelwyddan in 2005.  It operates across North Wales and the North West.

Managing director Chris Wynne said: “Hotel construction is a new departure for us and is part of our growth plan.  We’re already looking at further design and build projects in this sector. 

“The company started very close to Rhyl, and several of our employees live there.  We’re proud to be helping to bring about its rebirth as a significant visitor destination.”

Steve Parry, managing director, Ion Development said: “The Travelodge development will add a brilliant dimension to Rhyl’s waterfront offering.

“Wynne Construction have delivered an excellent refurbishment to the Pavilion Theatre and we look forward to working with them again on another successful project.”
