Following the successful completion of a range of fit-out projects for Accor Hotels, MIC won this substantial contract to undertake work at Novotel in Bristol.

MIC worked closely with long-time associates, the Manchester architects and designers Leach Rhode Walker, on an 18-month refurbishment of the hotel reception area, restaurant and bar, followed by the health club/spa and lifts.

The work involved the close co-ordination of a wide range of fit-out sub-contractors from electrical and specialist joinery to tiling, carpeting, bar work, mechanical and plumbing services, specialist metal and glass work and much more.

In the midst of all this, there always had to be a part of the reception, restaurant and bar open to residents. This meant that a considerable amount of ‘phasing’ was needed to minimise disruption for guests and complete the work on schedule.

Clearly, the project management experience of MIC played a major part in achieving a successful outcome.
