Do Know Your Fire Safety Law?

floats or runs on wheels unless it is static and being used like a building, e.g. work in dry dock.

Who is Responsible? The person responsible for fire safety is anyone* who to any significant degree has: • Control of the premises, e.g. the owner and the managing agent • Control over the activities on the premises • Employs people

The law applies to virtually all premises and covers nearly every type of building, structure and open space. For example, it applies to: • Offices and shops • Premises that provide care, including care homes and hospitals • Community halls, places of worship and other community premises • Pubs, clubs and restaurants • Schools and sports centres • Tents and marquees • Hotels and hostels • Factories and warehouses

The guidance documents that support fire law recommend a five stage approach to fire risk assessment.

*In many instances this will be a company or other organisation

Step 1 – Hazards

They are responsible for the safety of people who may be:

Identify the hazards within your premises including: sources of ignition, sources of fuel and any oxidising agents other than air.

• Legitimately, on the premises, or who is not on the premises but might be directly affected by a fire on the premises. In many cases, responsibility may be shared between several people but it is not the responsibility of the fire service or any other statutory body.

What Do You Need to Do?

Where Does it Apply?

More On Fire Risk Assessment

The person responsible (or persons if there are more than one), must make sure that everyone is safe from fire. If that is you, you or a person engaged by you must carry out a fire-risk assessment to determine what the risks are and to identify those measures necessary to minimise the risk to an acceptable level

Projects

Where Does it Not Apply?

One of our major projects from 2014 was HMS Belfast. The PA/VA solution was designed and installed by us. The PA/VA system includes a total of 12 circuits with two circuits for each of the public function and staff zones, both fore and aft. The ships design meant that it was impossible to route cabling directly between speakers, with the result that 12,000 meters of cabling was required to link all the speakers throughout the ship.

The law does not apply to people’s private homes, including individual flats in a block or house. In England and Wales, the law applies to the common parts of flats and HMOs (staircases and corridors), but not in Scotland and Northern Ireland. Broadly, the law does not apply to the underground parts of mines or off-shore installations. It also doesn’t apply to anything that lies,

The choice and positioning of the speakers was also critical in a complex multi-level environment with many narrow corridors and metal surfaces. The installation was completed on time and HMs Belfast were extremely impressed with the consistently high quality digital sound which the Notifier system delivers, in what is a difficult acoustic space.

Step 2 – Who Is At Risk? Identify people at risk. You must consider everyone who might be at risk from a fire on your premises, whether they are employees, visitors or members of the public.

Step 3 – Evaluate The Level Of Risk You should remove or reduce ire hazards where possible. The residual risk should be minimised.

Step 4 – Record, Plan, Inform, Instruct And Train • Record the findings from the fire risk assessment • If you haven’t already got one, make an emergency plan • Give staff, and occasionally others information. • Provide employees training on how to respond to a fire if one should occur.

Step 5 – Review Your Fire Risk Assessment Ensure it is up to date You will need to re-examine your fire-risk assessment if you suspect it is no longer valid, such as after a near miss, or if there is a significant change such as a change of processes, occupants, or the layout of the building.

One of our major projects completed for the 2009 and 2010 tournaments was the three quarter of a million pound Fire Alarm upgrade for the hospitality suites and roof project for Centre Court at The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, Wimbledon. The system is based on the Notifier ID3000 panels and has now expanded to 27 loops of detection just covering Centre Court with a complex arrangement of sounder and plant switching. This system is connected via a fibre optic network linking 15 Multi Loop Fire panels throughout the site. This is also complimented by multi stations Graphic systems.


“The kit!n is p"fect. It’s #$%ng” The impressive Ynyshir Hall Hotel, part of the Relais & Châteaux group, recently added to its many awards when its Michelin-starred restaurant received a new design and installation by C&C Catering Equipment Ltd. The scheme was awarded the Overall Winner Grand Prix trophy at the 2016 CEDA Awards, and our team at C&C couldn’t be more delighted. Not only did we work closely with their Michelin-starred Head Chef Gareth Ward and the late co-owner of the hotel Mrs Joan Reen, we also worked hand in hand with many of our trusted supplier partners. The result: An installation that completely eclipsed the existing catering facilities. An award winning installation no less. Sometimes we feel it’s better to let our customers do the talking though. So, in the words of Joan Reen, “The kitchen is perfect. It’s stunning, and you can’t get better than that”. We couldn’t have put it better ourselves. To find out more about the project, visit us online. Together, we make it happen.

Award-winning Stonefield Castle blossoms following substantial refurb Stonefield Castle, part of the Bespoke Hotels collection and situated on the tranquil shores of Loch Fyne, has undergone substantial investment in recent months, with bedrooms refurbished to an extremely high standard, alongside the drawing room, library, lounge and restaurant. Harris Tweed now abounds, fittingly enough, while prints from local artist Stuart Herd decorate both bedrooms and corridors. A selection of vintage parlour games, including an antique snooker table, also graces the games room. There’s even a fully operational telescope in the library, which will come in handy for any visiting astronomers wishing to sample some of Britain’s most unpolluted starry skies. Refurbishments have been completed at an opportune time for the property,

which was named Scottish Hotel Restaurant of the Year in 2015, as well as one of the top ten castle hotels by the Daily Telegraph earlier this month. It’s not hard to see why, given that both the hotel and restaurant boast spectacular views overlooking the Mull of Kintyre, while being surrounded on all sides by 60 acres of pristine woodland, including one of the largest rhododendron gardens in the UK, as well as wildlife including otters, seals, and even humpback whales in the neighbouring waters. Built in 1837, Stonefield Castle is an outstanding example of Scottish baronial architecture, retaining many of its original furnishings, such as wood paneling, ornate ceilings and marble fireplaces, whilst also providing all the

digital mod-cons a tech savvy guest could wish for, as well as the allimportant bedside coffee machines! For those who’ve built up an appetite after a day exploring the grounds, and perhaps even being gifted a private tour by the hotel’s octogenarian gardener, who was recently honoured by the Royal Horticultural Society, the Stonefield Restaurant offers outstanding food in a truly memorably setting.

Hilton Bankside and Alex Monroe collaborate on beehives The rooftop meadow was originally built to help reintegrate greenery into the Bankside landscape. Alongside wild flowers and a variety of plants, the beehives have been installed as part of Hilton Bankside’s proactive contribution to London’s green infrastructure. Bees are vital in the city to pollinate gardens, allotments, parks and other public areas – and to provide local honey to Londoners which can help cure hay fever symptoms during the summer months.

Peach pubs launches first boutique hotel

The Peach pub group has launched its first boutique hotel at its ‘star performing’ Birmingham gastropub today (6 June). It is the inaugural project to be funded by the firms recent £9.5m refinancing, as it seeks to grow from 17 to 22 sites. The 12-room High Field Town House occupies an 1860’s Victorian villa and has been designed by Peach’s coowner Jo Eames. It sits next door to the group’s existing High Field pub in the Birmingham suburb of Edgbaston. “When we opened The High Field in 2014 it was such an immediate hit that we jumped at the chance to convert

the lovely old house next door into boutique hotel rooms with the same vibe,” said Eames. “Eighteen months later, we are opening the doors to The High Field Town House, which is just five minutes away from the centre of the city yet feels a world away [in] Edgbaston, which is rapidly becoming a chic place to eat, drink and sleep.” Each of the hotels 12 bedrooms features a free-standing painted bath designed to evoke ‘country house comfort’. The opening marks a change of direction for the independent group, which runs 17 pubs across the South East and Midlands.

years has been the loss of flower-rich habitat on which the bees are dependent on for food. The productive use of its open spaces is part of Hilton Bankside’s campaign to help maintain a sustainable London. The opening marks a change of direction for the independent group, which runs 17 pubs across the South East and Midlands. As Hilton’s SE1 neighbour with a signature collection of jewellery inspired by bees, Alex Monroe is the ideal collaborator for this unique undertaking. The design of the hives has been inspired by wildlife with a whimsical nature, characteristic to Alex’s jewellery. Alex has said, “I’ve done well out of bees, so I feel like I owe them a great deal. Bee’s represent the femininity of our brand; they’re beautiful, soft and delicate, but they’re determined hard workers. If you get in their way they carry a powerful sting. There is something very British about a bee, with a nostalgia from days gone by, from a more natural way of life. Bees need to be appreciated, enjoyed and cared for. Without bees we’re nothing. I commend our new neighbours Hilton London Bankside on providing a local home for them on their rooftop meadow.” The apiary was designed and installed by Dale Gibson, founder of Bermondsey Street Bees and expert on sustainable urban beekeeping. Dale, who has won many awards for his honey, specializes in designing apiaries for chefs, hotels and restaurants, as well as keeping bees at locations as varied as Lambeth Palace and Soho Farmhouse. He comments: “We’re delighted to be working with Hilton Bankside to create this sustainable rooftop apiary and support the local greening charity, BOST. Alex Monroe’s hive designs beautifully illustrate our passion for increasing London forage for bees and other pollinators.”

Hilton Bankside is delighted to announce a partnership with British jewellery designer Alex Monroe for the design of its newly installed beehives. The Bankside beehives are housed on the meadow garden located 4 floors up on Hilton Bankside’s large green roof terrace, aptly named ‘The Meadow’. Each of the four beehives have been designed and painted by Alex Monroe in their own individual style representing each of the four British seasons.

SHEPHERD HUTS ARE THE NEW ROMANTIC ADDITION TO THE BRITISH WEDDING The new trend for the modern British wedding is both simple and luxurious and it takes the form of a shepherd's hut. Adding a rural and traditional element to weddings and wedding venues, Blackdown Shepherd Huts have responded to an increase in requests for shepherd huts and have set about creating special for-hire huts that meet all types of wedding needs from bride's dressing rooms to the ultimate honeymoon hut. Will Vickery, who owns Blackdown Shepherd Huts in Ilminster, Somerset, says: ‘The demand for huts to be used at weddings has really increased recently. Shepherd huts appear to be bang on trend, probably because they’re beautiful to look at and work well as photo backdrops, as well as being idyllic and private, special and intimate.’

WHAT IS SOUS-VIDE, HOW DOES IT WORK AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? Sous-vide is French and the English translation means “under vacuum”. The theory for the sous vide process was first discovered in 1799. It was re-discovered in the mid 1960’s and developed into a method for industrial food preservation. It wasn’t until 1974 when a French chef and university food scientist found that whilst using Sous-vide for foie gras, the product kept its original appearance without losing excessive amounts of fat. In fact its appearance, and its texture and taste were actually enhanced. The popularity of sous-vide has increased immensely in the last 30 years and world renowned restaurants rely on this cooking method to give them an easier and successful service. Although it is a culinary technique favoured by master chefs, sous vide cooking can also be used by busy kitchens and chefs who are passionate about food and cooking techniques.

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

Henkelman UK supply the European and UK’s No 1 vacuum packer as well as water baths – giving chefs the complete professional sous vide package.

BENEFITS OF USING THE SOUS VIDE COOKING • Sous-vide is a cooking technique which offers consistently perfect results for professional chefs. It is a method of cooking food in airtight vacuum pouches in a water bath at an accurately regulated temperature which is much lower than the temperature normally used in conventional cooking methods.

• The big advantage is that food prepared by sous-vide keeps its qualities longer than food prepared in the conventional way. A key benefit is that the vacuum pouch creates a fully humid environment that effectively braises the food, so ingredients cooked this way are noticeably juicier and more tender than cooking via conventional methods.

• The food cannot get hotter than the temperature of the water bath it is in. Whereas in conventional high heat cooking, such as oven roasting or grilling, the food is often exposed to heat levels that are much higher than the desired internal cooking temperature and the food must be removed from the high heat prior to it reaching the desired cooking temperature. If the food is removed from the heat too late, burning occurs, and if it is removed too early, under-cooking results. Cooking using the sous vide process, eliminates all this.

Smeg Comes to Broadway and Fits the Bill When looking for a reliable, tried and tested warewashing solution with a small footprint for a longstanding café client Andy Koumis from All Catering Services approached Smeg Foodservice. “I needed a warewasher to fit into Vural’s The Broadway Café, Southgate and they are a longstanding customer who I have been doing business with for 13 years.

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

“Vural and I designed the cafés interior and we installed the new kitchen. The challenge was the site’s shape and size which narrows from front to back from seven metres to under five metres, and obviously my client wanted to keep as much space for seating as possible.

20

“I knew of Smeg’s reputation for high quality and offering a range of sizes and different specification warewashers to match the needs of different operators. Talking with Martin Dawson at Smeg the CWC520D with an external softener was the ideal solution. The machine’s combination of a small footprint, competitive price and range of features and programmes fitted the bill perfectly and Vural were also happy to be buying the well respected brand,” comments Andy. www.smegfoodservice.com/uk/products/dishwashers

HMP STYAL, THE CLINK www.theclinkcharity.org The Clink is a charity which establishes a commercial kitchen and restaurant either within a prison or a separate nearby building, whereby selected inmates are professionally trained with the goal of acquiring educational qualifications. This is clearly demonstrated at this de-consecrated 100 year old chapel at HMP Styal, the first female institution with a Clink facility. The chapel required a large amount of planning to ensure the open plan kitchen, a Clink signature feature further developed by Sterling into a state of the art facility, and associated services within a limited floor space including a mezzanine with staff facilities could be accommodated without harming the historic decorative features and adherence to all current legislation. Supervising the installation meant attendance at a number of site meetings throughout the fit-out period to completion to ensure that The Clink received the expected standard of installation which Sterling had set including a thorough defects inspection of the project.

“Every cloud has a silver lining” The power of repetition is possible in full swing, with the FRACTAL CLOUD. Compositions are easily created, allowing for unlimited possibilities to arrange the lighting sculptures as free as clouds floating through the sky.

Our brains are set up to bring order in chaos, find logic in confusion and recognise patterns in the opaque. However, what to make of the puzzle of the exact yet endless repetition found at times around us?

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

The organised chaos of the reflecting elements of the FRACTAL CLOUD disperses the light beautifully in all directions. Hung individually or in compositions, the design can be a feature within a classic home interior or contemporary bar or restaurant.

36

FRACTAL CLOUD is a hand folded sculpture, created in our atelier. This hands-on approach allows us to alter the size and the finish according to the client’s wishes. Currently, we can produce the sculpture in two sizes Ø55cm and Ø70cm. Available in black matt, white matt, brass grinded and stainless steel, but we can apply more finishes to match the desired look.

William Brands comments on his work: Fractals are similar patterns that are repetitive. With the FRACTAL CLOUD there is the extra possibility of repeating not just the same element, but also the actual lighting object itself. Beautiful compositions can be made, guided by personal preferences. Therefore, this CLOUD sculpture has been an essential addition to the FRACTAL Collection.

“The fruit she carries is tempting... Will the apple be eaten, or not?” To be human, is to be aware that there are forces greater than ourselves. From the majestic power of nature, until the longings deep within our soul. With an elegant twist, although with an undeniable force behind it, the new Eve is crafted. The fruit she carries is tempting… Will the apple be eaten, or not? With EVE, William Brand goes back to the beginnings of humanity and the figures Adam and Eve. A collection of handmade lighting sculptures is born. EVE challenges you, she is an object of desire.

Eve tells us the story of the creation of mankind: Adam and Eve and the temptation of eating the forbidden apple. Eve is designed as a tree structure, carrying several light globes as her fruit. Each globe stands for a choice we humans can make, yet also allows for rays of light. The collection knows three models, round, oval and conical. All models are available in the finishes copper, nickel, brass, bronze, white matt and black matt.

William Brands comments on his work:

With Eve the beauty of life started. A life which means having a free will and consequently also making good or less good choices. Or, as the ancient stories tell us, the start of life also meant the start of temptations. Will the apple be eaten, or not...

William Brand - designer / owner William was trained as an artist and an architect. He graduated at the Utrecht School of Arts. As an award-winning furniture designer he for many years designed buildings and interiors for fashion brands, including the headquarters of BRAND VAN EGMOND. His interior designs are always minimalist, in contrast to his lighting designs which have a powerful sculptural presence. He considers his lighting objects the cherry on the cake. His way of working is quite specific. Immediately after defining the concept he starts working in the workshop like a sculptor; experimenting and crafting while having the object grow in his hands, often with unexpected results. Therefore the journey is just as exciting and important as the destination.

E info@brandvanegmond.com W www.brandvanegmond.com

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

With EVE I tried to create a sophisticated yet tranquil object, perfectly crafted with a rich finish. This design asks for interaction. She invites her beholders to slow down, pause and be still. She dares you to free your ideas and spur conversations with others. That’s why Eve needs to be placed in environments where people get together and sit with each-other: a dining table, a study, a lounge or maybe even a bedroom. Around Eve I see affection, luxury, calm and the great outdoors.

Which is why if you are looking to create truly inspirational rooms for your establishment one of the main things to consider is personalising. So what do you need to think about?

And it’s not just soft furnishing products Mitre can personalise. Beautiful bed linen can be given that extra little touch of luxury with embroidered detail. This can also be colour matched with an establishment’s desired Pantone.

Having a creative vision is a good place to start. Are you looking for your rooms to reflect the latest interior design trends? Is urban decadence more your style?

For a more luxurious bespoke experience, consider personalising linen such as dressing gowns, towels and even slippers with embroidered detail too.

Perhaps you are looking for something more traditional. Often hotels prefer a little help with this process which is why Mitre’s specialist in-house team of seamstresses can produce an array of concepts, colours and fabrics to help your creative vision come to life.

With just a bit of thought, it is easy to produce personalised bathroom sets to create a complete bespoke experience for your guests throughout their entire stay.

The soft Furnishings team are on hand to help hotels create beautiful rooms and products whatever style – or budget they are looking for. The experienced team and established UK suppliers can source something from outside their ready-made range to create unique cushions, curtains and runners that will reflect your brand’s identity. From prestigious five star London hotels, including The Ritz to boutique B&Bs such as the Tyndale Guest House in Torquay, Mitre have been working with an array of establishments across the country to help them create the perfect space for their guests to enjoy.

Business Matters

Scaling Up Customer Experience The explosive and ever-increasing popularity of hotel review websites, in addition to industrydisrupting direct homeowner-to-holidaymaker room letting sites, mean that few hotelier and hospitality providers can afford to rest on their laurels – every detail is under scrutiny. While limescale may not seem like a high priority issue, crusty bathroom taps, cloudy glassware and poor water pressure are all imperfections which are likely to be picked up, photographed, posted online and tweeted about for potentially thousands of would-be customers to view. To help hospitality providers raise standards and exceed ever-higher customer expectations, water treatment specialist Sentinel Commercial has created KalGUARD®, a scientifically proven, cost-effective system that permanently prevents limescale formation in commercial hot water systems, appliances (such as kettles and dishwashers) and sanitary fittings. The advantages it offers extend far beyond delighting customers by adhering to high standards of presentation – KalGUARD users can also expect to achieve significant savings on energy and maintenance bills, while gaining improved environmental credentials. Other benefits of limescale prevention include a more dependable supply of hot water, better water pressure, increased longevity of appliances, and easier, faster cleaning of bathrooms, cutlery, glassware and crockery. Furthermore, systems that are free of limescale are better able to be treated for legionella prevention.

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

A PROVEN AND RECOMMENDED TECHNOLOGY

42

Usually specified in areas where the water hardness is 200ppm or more (these levels are found in water supplied to around 65% of the population of England), KalGUARD can help protect both new and existing systems from limescale build-up. KalGUARD permanently ‘conditions’ water by dosing it with a very low level of stable zinc via an electrolytic process that uses a zinc anode and a copper cathode. This forces naturally occurring calcium carbonate crystals to form as soft, non-deposit-forming aragonite rather than into hard, deposit-forming calcite (limescale). Independent tests carried out at Cranfield University have proven KalGUARD’s ability to reduce limescale drastically. Furthermore, electrolytic technology is recommended by

the Part L Building Services Compliance Guide for the control of limescale, unlike devices using magnetic, impulse field and electronic technologies, all of which are supported by claims that are difficult to validate.

COST AND WATER SAVINGS KalGUARD is an extremely low maintenance system that requires no consumables and does not water. The filter simply needs to be flushed periodically – twice a year is recommended, though this can be covered by a technical field service contract if required*. The zinc anode has a lifespan of approximately 12 years, after which time the useable zinc may be depleted – the anode may also require replacement to maintain optimum performance.

FAST INSTALLATION AND EASY OPERATION Fitted on a rising main before tank and booster sets, WRAS-approved KalGUARD technology offers whole system protection. Installation and commissioning can be completed in less than one day, ensuring system downtime – and therefore any disruption to the business in question – can be kept to an absolute minimum. KalGUARD’s advanced controller technology enables future firmware updates from Sentinel Commercial to be effected speedily. The system also has an optional BMS pulse splitter to allow water usage to be monitored by the building management system.

NEW-LOOK BAR AND LOUNGE COMING SOON TO SKETCHLEY GRANGE HOTEL & SPA! A contemporary bar and lounge area is soon set to open its doors at Sketchley Grange Hotel & Spa in Hinckley, Leicestershire. The popular hotel is currently undertaking a major £1.5m refurbishment programme across its premises, part of which includes a complete makeover of the area. The vision is to develop an open-plan space, with different areas each offering individual characteristics. Drew Keen of Keen As Mustard Design Studio is working on the project. He explains: “The lounge will have a softer feel. We want it to be cool but cosy and comfy so we’ve got a palette of steely greys and blacks against pink velvet fabrics. “For the bar we’re aiming for a warm yet opulent vibe with high poseur tables and high-back arm chairs. This space will have a mix of mustard yellows against bold blacks.” The bar area will also feature seating booths with televisions which can be linked up to a laptop – ideal for working professionals or for keeping little ones occupied at mealtimes. Work started at the beginning of April and is expected to be finished in midJune Paul Noble, General Manager of Sketchley Grange, says: “This refurbishment will make Sketchley Grange a really appealing venue for local people to come and enjoy a drink or a meal. The new look will match the good-quality, wellestablished range of food on offer.” The bar and lounge will offer a seasonal varied menu to ensure there’s something to suit everyone’s tastes – whether it’s a morning coffee, a light lunch or a delicious evening meal. A comprehensive wine list is also being compiled to offer guests a wealth of choice. Paul adds: “The new bar and lounge will be open from morning until late, offering the opportunity to relax with a coffee, unwind with a glass of wine or two from our carefully-selected wine list, or indeed sit back and enjoy one of the many dishes created by our team of experts who will tempt you with their creative flair providing some of the very best examples of modern cuisine.”

Nestled away in an enviable location on the borders of Leicestershire and Warwickshire, Sketchley Grange Hotel & Spa is a charming country house hotel boasting first-rate facilities and elegant accommodation. Originally established over 30 years ago, this stylish four-star hotel in Hinckley is undergoing extensive refurbishment, carefully ensuring its traditional character dovetails with the contemporary amenities and stylish guest bedrooms. Surrounded by trees, Sketchley Grange benefits from a leafy, rural backdrop, yet is just minutes away from Hinckley’s flourishing town centre with its expanding choice of shopping and leisure opportunities. The M69 is also within easy reach for convenient links to Leicester, Coventry and other parts of the Midlands. For a truly relaxing retreat, the Romans Health Club at Sketchley Grange is the perfect place to rest and rejuvenate with its 17ft swimming pool, heated whirlpool, pool-side loungers, Cedar Wood sauna and aromatic steam room. The hotel also offers an array of luxury spa treatments, a highly-regarded hairdressing salon and a well-equipped gym. Couples searching for the right venue to host their dream wedding can rest assured that the dedicated team at Sketchley Grange have a wealth of knowledge and experience to ensure their special day is exactly how they imagined.

BLENDING THE OLD AND THE NEW Ashdowne handcrafted clay tiles transform 17th century pub

Famous for being a drovers’ pub back in the 17th century, the former Wheatsheaf pub in the Essex village of Rettendon is a building of significant historical importance but had remained derelict for almost ten years. The challenge was to restore and extend the ageing building, retaining many of the existing features. Owner David Bishop selected the handcrafted Ashdowne clay plain tiles from Marley Eternit to replicate the aesthetic of the clay peg tiles used on the original roof. 38,000 tiles were used to create the beautiful clay roof, creating a heritage appearance

that connects both the old and the new parts of the building. The roof includes a large octagonal shaped section to create a striking design feature. David Bishop comments: “With such an important local building, we wanted to stay as close as possible to the aesthetic of the original clay peg tiles and we chose the Ashdowne handcrafted tiles because they had a very similar appearance and were more cost effective. The aged look of the handcrafted tiles also meant we could use them to blend the new parts of the development in with the renovated historical pub. “As the building was disused for almost a decade, many of the original roof tiles were missing, so we would have had to find a huge number of old clay peg tiles, so the City Council planning department acknowledged the benefits of the handcrafted tile instead. The finished effect is stunning and the tiles really do help to combine the two parts of the building and ensure the new build is sympathetic to the old. Complementing the local village surroundings was very important

and we’ve had several local people comment on what a beautiful roof it is and how well it blends in.” Ashdowne handcrafted clay plain tiles are available in two weathered colours making them the ideal choice to enhance the beauty of a new build development or for a refurbishment project. The traditional handcrafted finish ensures each and every roof takes on a character of its own. Charlotte Hughes, product manager at Marley Eternit, adds: “The roof on this project certainly is stunning and demonstrates how handcrafted tiles like these can be used very sympathetically on restoration projects, at the same time as adding beauty to new builds. The Ashdowne tiles on this project help to blend the old and the new buildings very effectively, with the aged clay appearance complementing the vernacular style.”

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

Marley Eternit’s Ashdowne handcrafted clay plain tiles have been used to help transform a derelict 17th century pub into a new fine dining restaurant and village centre. The £3 million restoration project by David Bishop has seen the Wheatsheaf pub in Rettendon brought back to life as an exciting new complex which, in addition to Le Benaix Bar and Brasserie, includes a village store, hair dresser and separate beauty salon.

Ashdowne clay tiles also offer impressive environmental credentials, including the ability to achieve an A+ rating in the BRE Green Guide to Specification, BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing accreditation and certified carbon footprint data at product level.

Matthew Clark lists Brockmans Gin Matthew Clark, the UK’s largest national on-trade wholesaler, has chosen to list the superpremium English Gin, Brockmans, throughout business. Brockmans is one of just 28 super-premium gin brands in the company’s overall portfolio. The total gin category grew by 9% last year in volume terms and 16% in value terms, marking a significant trading up to super premium gins. This growth is accelerating with value growth in the 3 months to 31 January 2016 up by 18% compared with the same period last year (Source: WSTA).

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

The latest listing further confirms Brockmans Gin as not just a fast-growing brand but as one which has become a label with serious intent both in the UK and globally. A ‘New Western’ style gin, Brockmans has grown swiftly to become an important part of many on-trade and off-trade portfolio offerings.

Brockmans Gin, a 40% ABV super-premium gin made in England and packaged in stylish black glass, brims with botanicals and berries - including coriander, juniper blueberries, blackberries and bitter sweet Valencian orange peel - that combine to make ‘a gin like no other’. Its distinctive tactile black glass bottle with baroquestyle embossing looks as stylish as the gin tastes. Stuart Westwood, Product Marketing Manager for Spirits at

Matthew Clark said: “We added Brockmans Gin to our range in January as it offers a point of difference to the traditional juniper or citrus gins already in our range. Brockmans and Indie Brands have done a great job of building demand with a number of our customers and we are seeing new listings on a weekly basis”. According to Matthew Clark’s research, 87% of consumers say they ‘drink or would drink’ cocktails if available. Offering interesting spirits brands such as Brockmans - the ‘gin like no other’ - taps into this interest in new as well as classic, beautifully made cocktails.

“We are delighted to be listed by Matthew Clark,” says Bob Fowkes, Brockmans’ co-Founder and Marketing Director. “This further underlines how Brockmans has rapidly risen to become a significant global super-premium gin. It is a gin like no other and therefore plays an important and distinctive role in the portfolio offering of Matthew Clark”.

RefReshing new look foR Camden Town BReweRy Camden Town Brewery, the leading London craft brewery, today launches a brand new look. The refreshed product design is supported by a brand new website and an above the line campaign, with tube and bus advertising in London. In addition the Camden team will be hitting the road in their Little Camden beer van to sample to 39 offices across London (reaching 12k people) to drive trial and awareness with the lure of beer! This campaign comes at an exciting time of growth for Camden Town Brewery following brand’s acquisition by AB InBev, supporting their expansion through 2016/17, which includes the opening of a brand new brewery in Enfield – London’s largest investment in brewing for 30 years. The packaging – which has been applied across the current range of bottles, cans, boxes and tap badges - uses bold background colours and strong typography to give the name of the beer, the style of the beer and the all-important ‘Camden’ name stand out. The bold and colourful design creates more consistency across products, whilst retaining Camden’s playful and irreverent tone of voice. The product copy is educational in an engaging and informative way, with playful illustrations inkeeping with Camden’s brand tone. Camden’s distinctive core roundel logo remains in an updated form demonstrating a clear pride in its heritage, alongside an obvious excitement at the beginning of a new era. Eagle-eyed customers will note two hands joining the back bottle label. Inspired by the Camden City Council logo - an oval shaped symbol with four pairs of clasped hands, it is a clever nod to the brand’s origins in the borough. From 2017, the new brewery’s increased capacity will allow the brand to use this new design across an expanded range of small pack to including Unfiltered Hells and Ink in cans and bottles, Pils and Wit in cans and IHL in bottles, and fulfilling Camden Town Brewery’s aim of bringing great beer to more people. Mark Turner, Camden Town Brewery’s Managing Director, commented: “This refresh is part of our wider strategy to bring great craft beer to more people. The bold branding will really stand out on shelves, with engaging product information that appeals to consumers, giving another great reason to purchase.”

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

Camden Town Brewery worked alongside branding agency Studio Juice to develop these designs. Ross Stirling, the creative designer on this project commented, “Much like the Camden Hells Lager of today, the refresh is the result of tireless refinement. It was about making what worked, work harder. On their own, these beers scream from the tap rooms and bottle shops, but as a collection they come together to celebrate their irreverent fun nature and continued success.” The refreshed bottles and cans will be available nationwide in Waitrose, M&S and at Majestic wines, and in bars from 10th June 2016

80% of Britons would leave their hotel if it wasn’t clean enough • New survey reveals that 80% of people would leave a hotel if it didn’t meet their cleanliness or hygiene standards • A further 67% of people said they check out a hotel’s reviews before booking a stay, highlighting the importance of maintaining high standards • As the summer season starts, Direct365 advises hotel owners not to underestimate the power of online reviews

Research conducted by facilities and building maintenance specialists Direct 365 has found that 80% of people would leave a hotel if it didn’t meet their hygiene and cleanliness expectations. Phil Turner, Head of Digital at Direct365, commented:

“There are many things that hotel guests look for when choosing a hotel. Whilst other factors such as price, location and amenities are no doubt important, our research has shown that hygiene and cleanliness are paramount. If four out of five people would actually abandon a booking due to an unclean room, it’s essential that hotels prioritise cleanliness as much as they can.” The condition of a hotel is difficult to gauge unless you’ve stayed there before, which is why online reviews have become so important.

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

A second survey conducted by Direct365 revealed that 67% of people now actively seek out and read hotel reviews online before booking a stay.

60

With the rise of websites such as TripAdvisor and Yelp, and the growing number of people using social media to raise concerns or voice complaints, hotel owners simply must ensure that they maintain the highest standards at all times.

Phil Turner added that as the summer holidays approach, hotels cannot afford to garner negative reviews.

“With six weeks of school-free time on the horizon, parents will be on the lookout for a suitable place to stay with their children. Hotel reviews are becoming more important than ever, and it’s essential that owners strive to constantly provided a high level of service in order to stay ahead of the competition, and ultimately in business. “One bad review can spread like wildfire on social media. Even if you have dozens of good testimonials, it’s the bad ones that stand out and leave a sense of doubt in potential customers’ minds. You can’t afford to let things slip at all.”

A trusted partner to thousands of companies across the UK, Direct365 provides a wide array of services and everything you would ever need to keep your hotel well equipped and running as smooth as possible, including washroom hygiene and pest control.

UNILEVER PARTNERS WITH JOE & SEPH’S TO LAUNCH THE FIRST OFFICIAL MARMITE POPCORN

U

nilever UK has partnered with awardwinning popcorn brand, Joe & Seph’s to create the UK’s first official Marmite flavoured popcorn, available to retailers and operators from 30th May.

The latest launch from Marmite, the iconic British brand from Unilever UK , is one of the most requested products from fans and will join the UK’s burgeoning Popcorn market , worth £114m in RSV to supermarkets alone . It also coincides with the growing demand for flavoured popcorn, with nearly half of consumers expressing an interest in trying new popcorn flavours. The new Marmite product will consist of a unique flavour mix; smooth and sweet caramel generously glazed with the iconic spread to create a sweet and savoury combination. Marmite Popcorn will be available in a transparent 75g pack, complete with a co-branded Marmite and Joe & Seph’s label, in the famous black and yellow Marmite design. It will also be available to buy in a 21g impulse foil pack at food-to-go and food service outlets. Chloe Irwin, Senior Licensing Manager at Unilever UK, said: “The Popcorn category is one of the biggest success stories of the last five years, more than doubling in size from 2010 to 2015 and growing 30% last year . It’s also a product our fans have been requesting for a long time. We believe we’ve found the right partner in Joe & Seph’s and can’t wait to bring Marmite Popcorn to UK consumers.”

Adam Sopher, Co-Founder of Joe & Seph’s, said: “We’re thrilled to introduce the iconic, British, household name of Marmite to our award winning popcorn range. Joe & Seph’s values both innovation and taste as key for new product development, so Marmite popcorn was a clear preference to add to our range from the moment we launched Joe & Seph’s five years ago.”

Final call is sounded for entries in the Aberdeen City and Shire Tourism Awards

Entries close later this month on June 30, and ACSTA organisers are sounding a final call to businesses and individuals across the region to ensure they are part of the annual showcase of top tourism talent. The awards – now in their fourth year – celebrate the very best of the area’s tourism offering, from restaurants and pubs to hotels and guest houses. There are also accolades for top events and visitor attractions, and a brand new category for best sports event. Individuals who make a real difference to the experience of tourists – whether they are visiting for business or leisure – will also be recognised with sections for hospitality heroes, rising stars and local ambassadors. ACSTA chairman Peter Sangster says the competition is heating up, but organisers want to see even more entries to ensure those who are making a significant impression on the tourism sector get credit where it is deserved.

He adds, “The awards are not just for large operators and hotels that are part of a national or multinational chains – this is about recognising those who go the extra mile to provide excellent service regardless of their size. “We sometimes hear that operators have not entered because they are small in comparison to other entrants. That’s irrelevant, as what we are interested in hearing about is what they do improve the tourism offering, not how many covers they seat or what their turnover is. “Over the past three years we have had a wide variety of winners, from charities and community groups to national chains. There is a huge benefit to taking part as even being shortlisted shows customers that a very high quality experience is being offered. “The awards are completely free to enter, so there is absolutely nothing to lose. With the addition of the new category this year for sporting events, there is now even wider scope for operators to showcase

The full list of awards categories is: 1. Most Hospitable Hotel 2. Most Hospitable B&B/Guest House 3. Best Accommodation Provider (previously Best Holiday Accommodation) 4. Best Informal Eating Experience 5. Best Restaurant Experience 6. Friendliest Pub/Bar 7. Best Cultural Event or Festival 8. Best Sporting Event 9. Best Outdoor/Adventure Experience 10. Working Together for Tourism 11. Best Visitor Attraction 12. Tourism and Hospitality Hero 13. Innovation in Tourism Award 14. Regional Rising Star (age -30) 15. Regional Ambassador (age 31+) what they provide. I would urge anyone who has not already entered not to delay and make sure their nomination is with us before the June 30 deadline.” Entrants in each category will be shortlisted, and those who are finalists will go before an interview panel or have an undercover visit from the judging panel. ACSTA is a regional heat for the national tourism Oscars – the Scottish Thistle Awards – and winners will go on to represent the north east in that event in 2017. Entry into the awards is free and can be made at www. acsta.co.uk. The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony and gala dinner at Ardoe House Hotel in Aberdeen on November 25, 2016.

The Aberdeen City and Shire Tourism Awards (ACSTA) are heading into the finishing straight, and those who want to enter the prestigious scheme are being urged to get a sprint on to beat the fast-approaching deadline.

Two’s Company https://www.nsinteriors.com/hotel-designs/

“Everything is designed, few things are designed well” We approached Koubou interiors and NSI design to find out why these two high profile interior design companies joined forces. ‘That's not strictly true,’ said Nick Sunderland, ‘we still have our own independent companies but the collaboration on a new design stream seemed the most sensible approach.’ As Gilly Craft pointed out, ‘Our two design houses have a wealth of experience and support back up, and the hotel industry was a natural progression for us. My commercial background and architectural interior design experience merges perfectly with Nicks high end interior design style.’

Gilly Craft, Managing Director and lead designer, trained at the Regent Academy in London where she proudly graduated with a Distinction. Gilly founded Koubou Interiors in 2004 previously having tutored at her local college in Interior Design. BIID cpd committee chairman

‘I first met Gilly on the lecture circuit, ‘explained Nick, ‘where we were both sharing our experience to both designers and public alike, each approaching it from a different viewpoint but at the same time explaining it in the same principal. It took off from there and we realised our unique award winning approach to design was complimentary to the hotel and hospitality industry.

‘Not only that’, said Nick, ‘but our experience in private development of properties from 10 bedrooms to 160 sits perfectly in the boutique hotel and larger independent sector. Luxury living in a commercial environment and economically priced. We can still win awards for our designs and allow our clients to step up their profile in the growing and competitive chain in the leisure industry.’

Gilly explaned further, ‘By collaborating together we are able to offer our core services on larger and more complex sites, providing a core service and a world wide sourcing ability. We are able to offer a full service agency experience with both Interior Architecture and Interior design, alongside our construction and fit out as well as close out. They need go nowhere else saving time and money’
