The Marriott Hotel in Singapore is located in the heart of Singapore’s business, entertainment and shopping district on the famous Orchard Road. The 5 Star business hotel, well known for its iconic towering green pagoda, includes 393 guest rooms and suites, swimming pool and spa, 24-hour fitness gym and award-winning restaurants including Crossroads Cafe, Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant and Marriott Cafe.
The Hotel operator appointed Faithful+Gould to lead the major refurbishment from concept design stage through to completion and handover. The scope included a full refurbishment of the entry level lobby, F&B areas, and hotel guest rooms and bathrooms while the hotel remained operational throughout the renovation.
Leveraging on Faithful+Gould’s experience in 'live' hotel refurbishments, key project risks and challenges were identified early, and plans put in place to manage them. This included active management of the design process and necessary client and operator approvals, ensuring the hotel remains operational throughout the major works with minimal disturbance to guests; and managing the construction logistics when carrying out major works in one of the busiest retail districts in the world. To ensure the highest quality standards, a dedicated quality controller was also provided as part of the role.
