The Berkeley Hotel, Knightsbridge, London

Date: Friday, November 24th, 2017

We are currently involved in the refurbishment and restoration of multiple suites and bedrooms throughout the Hotel.

The Berkeley is one of the leading 5-star hotels in London and is part of the Maybourne group along with Claridges and the Connaught.

Working in a live environment is challenging for the team but with close coordination with the client/ principal contractor and interior design team we strive to provide our client with a seamless transition from existing to new.

Some complexities we come up against are

  • Throughout the course of works the existing hotel must remain fully operational.
  • Access to the site is strictly controlled with dedicated site access routes agreed with the hotel and the works areas are secured from the public, hotel staff and guests.
  • Due to the everyday running of the hotel there are restrictions on noise throughout the site, this means that noisy activaties are restricted to between 8.00am and 4.30pm.
