Project Description

The project entailed the construction of 41 bedrooms within two areas of the arena - 34 in the South stand and 7 in the North stand. The whole of the works were carried out in a live Hotel environment as well as having to cater for the other activities of a busy sports and conference facility, while ensuring all those activities were not disrupted. The scope of work was a turn key project whereby all furniture fixtures, fittings and fitments required in the bedroom and bathroom were supplied as part of the project, including curtains and bedding. Both sections of works handed over on time with 7 bed area delivered 2 weeks early.


“As with all construction contracts, variations arose due to unforeseen pre-existing conditions of the building and/or the Employer instructing changes to his requirements. Shaylor dealt with all issues promptly and co-operatively. The project was delivered within very exacting time, quality and budget constraints. Shaylor were very patient and supportive through a lengthy Value Engineering process to ensure the Works could be delivered within the Employer’s budget and meet their business objectives”.
