MK Dons : Business and Financial Planning

GVA RGA were excited to be involved with a project at stadium:mk, home of MK Dons football team in Milton Keynes. Hotels near sporting stadia are becoming increasingly commonplace yet a hotel within a stadium is something slightly out of the ordinary. GVA RGA were the consultants of choice for this challenging project, having worked on a number of similar schemes based around sports stadium developments.

The innovative development was to include an hotel in the West Stand. Construction of the hotel was already well underway with 70 rooms, some of which doubled as corporate hospitality boxes overlooking the pitch and another 57 looking out over a leisure park, that may perhaps include a casino in the future. However, last minute hitches with the design specifications left the hotel without a brand or an operator and only the shell of some of the bedrooms.

This presented some unique challenges but GVA RGA were able to provide specialist business planning, branding advice and assisted the clients in obtaining an operator.

The 127 roomed Doubletree by Hilton is up and running with some rooms having spectacular views directly on to the pitch.
