This prestigious hotel is situated on the corner of Charlotte Square and George Street in the very heart of Edinburgh’s city centre. The successful delivery of this project was a great achievement, taking place in a fully functioning live hotel during the summer tourist season at the time of the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival.
The existing Bar and Restaurant areas were completely refurbished to form the new George Street Bar & Bistro providing a more modern and relaxing ambience. The works comprised the complete strip out of existing furniture, fitments and finishes to both areas. The existing bar and back gantry were refurbished with the bar counter being overclad in zinc. The fitout involved the formation of new banquet seating , redecoration, various hardwood and soft flooring finishes and new feature lighting throughout. SJS manufactured and installed bespoke joinery display cases and fitments all produced in our state of the art manufactured joinery facility.
A new lobby was created forming a more welcoming entrance to the bar off George Street along with the construction of new stars to link the bar and restaurant area. The final phase of the project involved the restoration of the existing oak flooring in the lobby linking the restaurant to the main hotel reception. The success of the project was down to the teamwork and partnership approach established between site management and the clients staff. Careful planning of the works and excellent daily communication ensured minimal disruption to ongoing hotel operations allowing the hotel to focus on its normal business priorities whilst the work was being efficiently delivered.
