The contract involved the conversion of back of house office areas and existing bedrooms into a new Cocktail Bar area, the refurbishment of the Kitchen and Restaurant and formation of a new Hotel Reception facility. The works were undertaken whilst this premier city centre hotel remained fully operational throughout the entire contract.
