The West Wing Bedroom Refurbishment Project is TJL’s second significant contract with The Gleneagles Hotel after previous works at The Dormy Clubhouse, as it prepares for to host the Ryder Cup in 2014. This project programme was to refurbish 36 bedrooms over 10 weeks with all works undertaken while hotel remained fully operational.
The main scope of works were split into two categories the 70’s style rooms of which there were 19 and the 90’s style rooms of which there were 17. Both styles of room required the strip out of all soft furnishings in the bedrooms, whilst retaining and French polishing all existing small case goods. TJL manufactured and installed new wardrobes and altered the existing Armoires by cutting them down to half size.
The 70’s style bathrooms saw the existing wall tiling and vanity units retained with the installation of new sanitary ware, new floor tiles and wall tiles in shower cubicles. Whereas in the 90’s style bathrooms only the existing vanity units were retained with new floor and wall tiles throughout and selected new sanitary ware.
All rooms received an electrical upgrade including the installation of under floor heating in the bathrooms, headboard lights and ving card. In addition, all rooms had the existing walls and ceilings plastered, with new wall paper and decoration works throughout. Furthermore, there was new ironmongery works undertaken and new beds, headboards and curtains were installed in all 36 rooms.
TJL have recently returned to complete Phase 3 of the bedroom refurbishment works, renovating another 10 bedrooms to the same specifications as Phase 2.
