Sanderson Ltd have just completed 2 hotel conversions for AC Marriott which is the company’s first foray into the UK market.
The two exciting completed projects were AC Marriott Birmingham – 89 bedrooms and AC Marriot Salford Quays – 142 bedrooms. Both jobs were existing hotels that had been purchased by the client and needed to be re-branded to their high standards. There was a tight time constraint, but with strong team work, Sanderson knew it could be done.
Challenges & unique points
One of our specialities is working in an operational environment, and these two hotels were no different; just on a larger scale. By proactively working with the hotel management, we managed to keep their required amount of rooms open and trading whilst we refurbished other floors.
Breaking out a floor slab with a diamond saw to install a new staircase, whilst the reception desk was 15 metres away was a challenge in itself, but one that Sanderson Ltd relished and did well.
The works were completed in 14 weeks, and the finished projects looks stunning. By giving honest goals to the client & working together closely as a team Sanderson managed expectations and handed over on time.
