Renovation of The Cumberland Hotel into ‘Hard Rock Hotel’

The Hard Rock Hotel opened its doors recently following the renovation of The Cumberland Hotel which is based on the corner of Marble Arch and Park Lane in central London.

GLH Hotels, one of the largest hotel owner-operators in London, who have a global hotel brand, appointed us as their Independent Inspectors who provided Building Clerks of Works services for the latter stages of the conservation project which involved the inspection of the GMT Lobby bar, Cocktail bar and the 370-seat Hard Rock Café and the refurbishment of the hotels main entrance and reception in the hotel’s lobby.

Our Building Inspector inspected the quality of all the ground floor renovation over a four-month period to ensure the exacting standards of finishes and construction required from our client was maintained during the challenging programme building up to completion.

 “It was excellent for us to be able to concentrate on the overall quality of work and materials whilst the enthusiastic and committed team worked up to practical completion so staff training could take place as scheduled prior to the opening night.”

Operations Manager, Jon King

With 28 years of inspection expertise in the construction industry, we have worked with hotel chains throughout the UK some of which include CitizenM Tower of London hotel, Hampton by Hilton and Grade I listed hotel, The Crescent in Buxton.

If you have a hotel project that requires dedicated Clerks of Works services to oversee the Building and M&E aspects throughout the entire project or during the snagging stages, please contact the team on 01226 743959 who can discuss visitation levels with you.
