The external refurbishment included new Hilton brand signage, replacement insulated cladding to external façade and new highperformance glazing to reduce sound transmission
The internal refurbishment comprised of Hampton branded ensuite bedrooms, new kitchen, restaurant bar and hospitality areas, with public toilets along with back of house staff areas offices.
Detailed design of building engineering services including full production of detailed design information in Revit MEP to inform the Building Information Model to Hampton standards
Utilised Autodesk Revit MEP to produce a fully coordinated
Building Information Model to a level of development consistent with Level 2 as a platform for coordination with architectural and structural proposals.
Fully coordinated detailed design of the M&E in BIM, with clash detection, coordinating the services with the building and structure
Preparation of fully dimensioned builderswork drawings
Creating a high-quality appearance, accommodating complex engineering systems, requiring a high degree of coordination and creativity in concealing the services, whilst maintaining suitable
means of access for maintenance.
