EE Smith Contracts has been awarded the multi-million-pound contract to provide the full hotel fit out of the highly-anticipated 5-star The Londoner, based in Leicester Square – the world’s first ‘super boutique’ hotel.
The project marks the Midlands-based interior fit-out specialist’s biggest contract in its 123-year history.
The £300-million development, due to open later this year will feature 350 guest rooms, including 35 suites, as well as a variety of restaurants and lounges, a spa, two-screen cinema and a 1,000-capacity ballroom.
The unique 16-storey building, dubbed the ‘Iceberg Hotel’, spans six levels below ground, making it the deepest habitable basement in London and one of the deepest in the world.
EE Smith Managing Director, Neil Bottrill, said: ‘This is a milestone project for EE Smith and we are very excited to work on such a large-scale development in the heart of London’s West End.
‘With cutting edge design by Yabu Pushelberg, combined with Woods Bagot quality architecture, the interiors are beautifully unique, making us even more thrilled to be part of this iconic project.
‘Our design development and production team are essential to the success of the manufacture of the unusual, cutting-edge concepts across the building,’ Neil adds.
