    The 265-room Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, London, is the boutique hotel’s fifth property under the Ace Hotel brand and is focused on traditional yet modern British craftsmanship. Turner & Townsend had been appointed by Atelier Ace in New York, to carry out the Project Management, Cost Management and CDM Co-ordination of the £12 million refurbishment of the former Crowne Plaza hotel.The first phase of works on the project were completed in September 2013 allowing the vast majority of the hotel to be operational (except 7th floor), including all guest rooms, lobby, cafe, restaurant, bars and flower shop. The second phase (7th floor) completed in July 2014 opening the 7th floor meeting rooms, event spaces and rooftop bar.

    The team carried out intensive management of all work processes, which required a multitude of workshops for various areas and works packages, so as to ensure that the clients brief was met and the unique brand and design of Ace complemented the local area’s identity, as well as meeting the extremely demanding project delivery programme.

    Turner & Townsend look forward to continuing their relationship with Atelier Ace on future projects.

    Jon White, UK Managing Director commented: “The successful delivery of this landmark project in the capital’s East End is a result of our desire to properly understand our client’s needs and implement robust project management procedures to ensure that the demanding delivery standards were met.”
