    ISG has successfully completed a refurbishment project at boutique hotel Threadneedles in the City of London, to reconfigure accommodation and create five new guest rooms within the existing building.The scheme follows the acquisition of the five star hotel by Westmont Hospitality in November 2011, as part of a deal involving four hotels previously owned by The Eton Collection. As part of a strategy to increase revenue generation at the hotel, ISG has relocated back of house facilities to available space within the building and then converted these underused areas into guest accommodation.

    The project included the creation of a new wheelchair accessible guest room on the ground floor and a guest room on the mezzanine floor, space which was previously used as the hotel’s comms room. ISG has also created three further guest rooms on levels two, three and four in space formerly used to accommodate staff changing and canteen facilities.

    In addition to creating the new guest rooms, ISG has relocated staff welfare facilities, the staff canteen, IT and comms room and new back of house offices to the building’s basement. The redevelopment also included an upgrade to the hotel’s existing lifts to access the new guest rooms.

    Peter Kilby, managing director of ISG’s Hotels division, commented: “This project demonstrates how a hotel asset can be enhanced by maximising the saleable space, providing the opportunity to increase revenue generation from guest rooms. Throughout the delivery of this complex scheme we worked closely with the client’s management team to ensure the hotel continued to operate on a business-as-usual basis, developing a phased works schedule to ensure seamless project delivery.”
