Evans Jones was appointed to re-design 180 bedrooms and to manage the refurbishment of these rooms.

Our Building Surveying team also designed repairs to the concrete pre-cast parapet walls which were subject to structural movement.
The main challenge was to complete the works without use of scaffolding and to ensure all 180 bedrooms were available to hotel guests at weekends throughout the works.
Our team devised a program which enabled all rooms to be free and ready for hotel guests by each Friday lunchtime. This included taking possession of 10 bedrooms each week from Monday to Friday morning for refurbishment and the use of pre-fabricated furniture made off site.
The refurbishment of Kings Cross Travelodge was completed over 18 weeks without a single customer complaint.
