A landmark in the centre of the city, The Balmoral Hotel is a luxury 5 star property at Edinburgh’s most prestigious address, No. 1 Princes Street.
We worked closely with the Rocco Forte Hotels design team to transform 43 rooms and suites at the historic Balmoral hotel, providing project management and health and safety principal designer services.
The pre-contract phase was critical for the project, attention to detail was required across the team as there were several different room types and designs in the renovation programme, with some rooms being enlarged and a range of designs being used.
We worked closely with the hotel management team to agree a programme that would deliver efficient and effective repositioning of the rooms, while minimising revenue displacement, with the works being organised by floor and handovers completed in 4 phases spread over 4 months.
We engaged a trusted local supply chain to complete the building works, while specialist FF&E was sourced from across the UK and Europe.
The scheme was successfully delivered on time and to budget.
Post renovation, the rooms have been extremely popular with guests.
