Project Specification:
Sector: Commercial
Client: Hilton Hotel
Location: Park Lane
Project Value: £480k
Timescale: 7 weeks

The space, at third floor level, was to be utilised as a private gaming area and covered terrace for exclusive clientele. All works needed to be carried out with a minimal disruption, and a modular pod system was chosen as fit for purpose.

Having previously enjoyed a good working relationship with the Hilton Project Management Team, Buildwise were approached to carry out the works.

The bespoke designed pods – three in total – were built off site in a state-of-the-art workshop by our professional team, thereby significantly reducing the build programme and the subsequent time required on site.

Buildwise built the pods using a highly insulated steel frame at its core, paying special attention to acoustic cladding and ventilation, and with all electrics and plumbing ready for connection. The terrace area was open to two sides – to allow for smoking – and had a toughened glass roof.

The pods were designed to seamlessly join once in place.

For minimum disruption, our team craned the pods onto the roof on a Sunday, when the busy Park Lane was at its quietest.

Once the pods were in place, Buildwise were able to complete the fitting-out process in just two weeks. Our team laid a marble floor throughout, installed a bespoke bar, and completed the private space with toilet facilities.
