PACIFIC Building are keeping the foot to the floor this summer, having secured two major tourist hotel refurbishment projects, worth £11million.
The extensive works are under way at the Holyrood Hotel and the Mount Royal Hotel (pictured), which are both high-profile, busy stopovers for visitors to Edinburgh.
At the Holyrood – on Holyrood Road, near the Scottish Parliament – 158 guest bedrooms will be refurbished for clients Gateway Hotels, including associated corridors, flooring, decoration, furniture and bathroom upgrades.
The project also comprises an extensive renovation of the hotel’s public areas, including the reception, lobby bar, lounges and restaurants.
On world-famous Princes Street, the Mount Royal (previously called the Mercure Edinburgh) will see 156 guest bedrooms being refurbished, together with associated corridors, flooring, decoration, furniture and bathroom upgrades.
Both projects incorporate extensive manufactured joinery, which will be fabricated and delivered by Pacific’s highly skilled in-house workshop team.
The hotel upgrades come on top of other commissions this year across the travel, hospitality and retail sectors.
They include two successful completions for international food and drink outlet operators SSP – the Bridge & Castle at Edinburgh International Airport and The Spinning Jenny at Glasgow International Airport.
Also at Edinburgh, Pacific delivered the new World Duty Free Express store.
This past year has also seen the company hand over a second project for cosmetic surgery specialists Cosmedicare at St Ellen’s Hospital in Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, having earlier delivered their new clinic in Livingston.
Finally, Pacific have continued their longstanding and successful association with McDonald’s, with the delivery of an all-new restaurant at Broadwood Farm in Cumbernauld and the refurbishment of the previously existing Coatbridge outlet.
They will shortly commence work on another new-build restaurant in Motherwell as well as refurbishing another Lanarkshire restaurant in Hamilton.
A Pacific spokesperson said: “We are delighted to further expand our presence in the hotel sector with these two prestigious projects.
“Whether it’s an imposing country house establishment, a city centre landmark location or a smaller hotel in a tourist hot spot, we have helped some of the best-loved brands maintain or improve their image and their offerings to expectant and loyal clientele through the various major refurbishment programmes that we have masterminded.
“Allied to an impressive array of commissioned works at in other sectors at other locations, we are looking forward to a busy and fruitful summer.”
The company has in the past delivered successful refurbishment programmes at other tourist beacon hotels, including world-renowned Gleneagles in Perthshire, the imposing Waldorf Astoria, Edinburgh – The Caledonian, The Rusacks Hotel in St Andrews and the Marine Hotel in North Berwick.
Pacific’s environmentally-sustainable, bespoke joinery facility, which plays a key role in many of their projects, has provided jobs for six new staff and features all-new machinery, tooling and other equipment, and it covers an area three times the size of the workshop they formerly used at their main base in Hillington, on the outskirts of Glasgow.
A six-figure investment by Pacific Building – whose clients include McDonald’s restaurants, pub and restaurant chain Mitchells & Butlers, JD Wetherspoon and Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Manchester International Airports – the workshop gives the company the ability to manufacture superior quality specialist pieces to meet increasing demand from the hospitality, retail and travel sectors.
Since 2019, Pacific has been an employee-owned business, which means every staff member is a beneficiary of an Employee Ownership Trust, which owns Pacific Building Ltd on behalf of all employees now and in the future.
Its prestigious client base includes some of the UK’s biggest names as well as world-renowned businesses.
