Main Contractor – Murray and Willis

We recently completed the M&E refurbishment of a 135-bedroom hotel, including seventeen suites and public areas at The Crowne Plaza hotel, part of the IHG (Intercontinental Hotel Group) in Leeds, for main contractors Murray & Willis

This project was phased over an eighteen week fast-track programme ensuring always that disruption to the hotel guests and staff was kept to an absolute minimum.

The first phase of the project incorporated the strip out and refurbishment of the fifth-floor bedrooms and at the same time we commenced the refurbishment of the mezzanine level on the first floor.

The fifth-floor bedrooms comprised of 17 suites and the rest being standard doubles and twins. The existing suites were completely stripped out. Five of the suites had free standing ‘Cocoon’ baths and a separate walk in shower with wall hung vanity units. The remaining 12 suites were club doubles with rain showers.

The mezzanine level within the public areas comprised of decorations, carpeting, coffee break out area and the ‘Roundhay’ conference room completed in just four weeks. In the ‘Roundhay suite’

The Second phase of the public area, comprised stripping out and refurbishing the existing ground floor restaurant. While we were completing this phase, the hotel set up the restaurant temporarily in the ‘Headingly Suite’.

At the same time on a floor by floor basis from top to bottom we repeated each floor of bedrooms and the complete mechanical and electrical installation including air conditioning.
