Lincoln Hotel rehabilitation in Casablanca

Abandoned for decades, the Lincoln Hotel in Casablanca is about to get a second life! A jewel of the Neo-Moorish Art Deco architecture, the Lincoln Hotel features a façade that is listed as part of #morocco 's historical heritage. Decision was taken to renovate this 5* Hotel built in 1916 and to reopen it in 2025 under the Radisson Collection banner.

The technical challenge of this project? The demolition of the old structure of the Hotel, while preserving its listed façade, very unstable, which will form part of the new Hotel design.

The solution was provided by a consortium, led by Freyssima (Freyssinet Morocco), with SPTS and two sister companies from Soletanche Freyssinet: Soletanche Bachy and Sixense Group. Freyssima supervised the demolition of the ruins and the initial works to secure the façade, while SOLSIF MAROC (Soletanche-Bachy Morocco) was called out to manage the ground works and the wall shoring for two basement levels for the future hotel. Both relied on Sixense to make sure that all operations were running well, thanks to the installation of a monitoring system on the façade and nearby buildings.

Congratulations to our teams who completed successfully this first phase in October 2022 and proved the complementarity of our different expertise within Soletanche Freyssinet.

It’s now time for the new Hotel to spring up! Freyssima gets back to work with a new 6-month contract signed with Maxiconsumo SA for the post-tensioning of 13 606 m² slabs for the future Hotel.
