This project involved major extension and refurbishment works over 2nr phases to the 4 Star Crown Plaza hotel in Shaw’s Bridge, Belfast. During the construction phase, the existing building including guestrooms, hallways, function rooms and hotel reception remained fully operational.

Construction works were completed in a phases sequence involving out-of-hours working over a 6-month (phase 1) and 7-month (phase 2) timeframe and comprised of the following works:

- 2nr vertical extensions to the hotel guestroom wings from 2-storey to 3-storey which provided an additional 33nr bedrooms with en-suites. This involved removing the existing trussed roofs and concrete tiles, disconnecting services and equipment and waterproofing the floor plates to allow the rooms below to remain occupied while construction was taking place.

- Complete interior fit-out to 117nr guestrooms comprising new hardwood doors and linings, floor coverings, fitted furniture, decoration and upgrading of M&E services.

- Complete interior fit-out to the en-suites comprising floor and wall tiling, complete sanity ware package, vanity units, shelving and mirrors.

- Replacement doors, lining, surface finishes and M&E services to the corridors and extensions to fire escape stairwells to accommodate the additional third floors to both guestroom wings
