Rich pickings in hotels for Willmott Dixon
Willmott Dixon Interiors has picked up three contracts in London, together worth £35m, to convert apart-hotels into the Residence Inn by Marriott brand.
The extended stay apart-hotels in Long Lane, Earls Court and Bermondsey were previously operated by Think. Willmott Dixon Interiors’ role is to transform 500 rooms along with front and back of house services into the new Residence Inn by Marriott look. The apart-hotel concept is an emerging hotel sub-sector where a lounge, kitchen and mini diner are typically included as well as a bedroom and bathroom.
These conversions underline Willmott Dixon Interiors’ experience of working in live hotel environments. It has refurbished more than 8,500, Travelodge hotel rooms over the past five years.
Willmott Dixon Interiors is currently delivering £43m-worth of hotel sector work, including £1m refurbishments for three further Village hotels in the north of England, while Willmott Dixon’s construction arm is building a new 154-bed Village Hotel Club in Portsmouth.
Mike Hart, chief operating officer at Willmott Dixon Interiors, said: “Working in the hotel sector is a specialist skill; we have over a 1,000 rooms in progress or completed since mid-2016 with projects of all complexities and sizes.”
