Mercure Inn Continental HotelWeld Street, Broome - Completed 2008

Commissioned by Accor Hotels, OKA designed, documented and administered the building contract for a 66 room extension to the existing Mercure Intercontinental Hotel on an adjacent 2,428m2 parcel of land. The development was over three storeys and included a second pool and additional car parking facilities.


Aesthetically the building was designed to evoke “Broome style”, located to take advantage of views to Roebuck Bay and set in tropical gardens.


Construction was typically reinforced concrete blockwork, insitu concrete slabs/footings, steel framed roof structure, Colorbond Custom Orb roof and wall cladding, powder-coated steel balustrades and windows.


The accommodation was successfully delivered on budget and to the complete satisfaction of the hotel group.
