Riviera Hotel, Marfa (Malta)
Through the refurbishment and extension phases of the Riviera Hotel, Forward Structures was proud to assist Perit Martin Farrugia with the structural design for the project.
The western area of the existing hotel was partially demolished, consolidated to be able to withstand additional floors and then re-constructed with a new layout. Along the northern face, the hotel was extended towards the sea followed by the construction of an additional two floors on most part of the existing hotel.
Through several months of design development, the existing structure was mapped out and analysed to assess the structural capacity. The structure was consolidated locally in areas to be able to withstand the additional loading, following which the extensions and additional floors were constructed.
