Kent-based distributor, Hallmark, has completed works at the Four Seasons Hotel at Trinity Square, London.
This involved the supply and installation of five kitchen areas spread over three floors: a staff restaurant, full laundry facility, local and centralised plate/potwash rooms, refuse/bin wash, three bespoke front of house bars and two stand alone support pantry facilities.
The kitchen design house was appointed by Ardmore Construction to design develop consultant SHW Design’s information. Furthermore, Hallmark was tasked with completing phase 1 of the project by June 2016, which was achieved in conjunction with various sub-contractors.
Phase 2 was 95% complete prior to Christmas 2016, leaving additional scheduled works to be completed in January 2017.
The five-star Four Seasons Hotel is Located close to the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and the River Thames, and features 100 accommodations, including 11 spacious suites. Hallmark stated that it feels “privileged to have worked for such a renowned brand and proud to have been part of the team that pulled the project together”.
The key challenge on this particular project was adhering to a very tight project deadline while delivering a huge installation and supply of catering equipment spread across many areas, as well as having to adapt to a change of plans when the client informed the distributor that key areas it was working on had to be occupied ahead of the programme.
Working under pressure, the Hallmark team collaborated with the main contractor, architect, numerous site trades, foodservice consultants and an extensive supply chain to ensure everything was handed over on time and to specification. This meant the project was completed ahead of the deadline.
The project started on 16 February 2016, and was completed on 17 January 2017. Hallmark believes the scheme is one of the largest carried out in London during 2016.
Hallmark project director Andrew Arnold commented: “New and exciting hotel projects are not uncommon these days but not many occupy such an old and historic building such as 10 Trinity Square.
“The brand standards benchmark required by Four Seasons is extremely high and it means we got to not only have the honour of working on such a prestigious project, there’s also the ‘smile on your face’ kudos of knowing we brought it all together. I for one will look back and say hand on heart, I’m proud of this one.”
