The Colmore Tang Construction subsidiary specialises in refurbishment and interiors for the commercial, retail, restaurant and hospitality sectors.
Tang Interiors will be remodelling the hotel’s 16th floor into a 5,250 sq ft open-plan conference space for up to 440 delegates, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering 360° views across the city.
The 15th floor – where the current conference facilities are – will also be transformed to create additional meeting rooms and break-out areas, as well as a new bar area.
Worth £750,000, the project involves stripping out the existing bar and restaurant on the top floor and transforming it into a completely versatile space.
Carl Hubbard, Operations Director at Tang Interiors said: “We’ve been appointed to deliver an inspirational conference and events space that has the wow factor but is still in keeping with the luxurious feel of the rest of the hotel.”
The firm will construct two new bars and install contemporary lighting, state-of-the-art audiovisual and new air conditioning.
Tang Interiors will also install Bolon tiled flooring; an innovative Swedish product that is impervious to spillage and offers sound attenuation.
Hubbard added: “We’ve worked closely with Park Regis and architects Tibbatts Abel to design every aspect of the space so that we can deliver a high-quality conference facility that reflects the prestigious brand and ensures the hotel remains one of the most popular city centre venues for hosting events.”
Work started at the beginning of April and the new conference facilities are expected to be complete by mid-June. The hotel will remain open as usual for the duration of the refurbishment.
