Hyatt Regency Chennai, India

Robust Hotels purchased an unfinished hotel development in mid 2007 and appointed Faithful+Gould to manage the completion of the project.

The building was originally designed as an Oberoi property in the 1980s. Construction commenced in 1989 and was partially complete when all works ceased in 2000. The structure was substantially complete but required significant internal remodeling and renovation work to update to a contemporary style hotel with modern technology and facilities. The task of recovering and refurbishing the hotel, especially its plant and equipment, was a challenge.

Through expert project and construction management, Faithful+Gould was able to revive and transform an abandoned building into a landmark building with 327 premium rooms and restaurants of international standards.

*Project delivered by Confluence, now part of Faithful+Gould.
