Doubletree by Hilton – West End
DoubleTree by Hilton – West End – Holborn
Another hotel in the heart of London sits Doubletree by Hilton. JWK Electrical took on the project when it was previously known as the Holiday Inn Hotel.
The first phase of works was the re-branding. Hilton have their own strict Brand Standards in place which all franchises must adopt when opening up under their established name. Phase-one included the complete strip out and refurbishment of the ground floor areas, comprising all reception areas, meeting rooms, bars, restaurant, gym, and other front-of-house and back-of-house areas. We carried out all aspects of the electrical work: LV Distribution, Power and Lighting, ICN systems including a new comms rooms, Fire Alarm Systems, Accessible Refuge Systems, CCTV, and other Security and Access systems.
All of this work was completed whilst the hotel was open for business, and the phasing plans were laid out as such, the building could remain occupied the entire time before, during and after the re-branding process.
Following the successful completion of these difficult stages of work, JWK Electrical then secured and delivered the refurbishment of all the guestrooms to a new high standard of living, also while the building was fully occupied. These phases lasted over 2 years consecutively, and was completed on time, despite many difficult obstacles.
Very recently, we have again secured the next phase of works here at DoubleTree West End, whereby a portion of the hotel meeting rooms are going to be upgraded into new guest suites to keep up with the success of the hotels demand for rooms. This phase of works is due to start in April 2018. We also carry out Maintenance works here such as Emergency Lighting Periodic Tests and Electrical Installation Condition Reports – these are required by the Hotel for the safe upkeep of facilities and insurance purposes.
