Project details: 

APP appointed to manage major refurbishment of landmark CBD hotel

Sheraton on the Park is a well-known five-star landmark hotel in the middle of Sydney’s CBD.   APP was appointed by the owner and operator, Starwood, to manage a significant refurbishment of all 548 rooms, as well as the porte cochere, the ground floor lobby, reception and tearooms, Level 1 bar and dining areas.

For Starwood, it was important to maximise the visual impact of rooms and ambience, as a way of enhancing the guest experience.  As both owner and operator of this hotel, Starwood had extensive input into the review of the prototype rooms and the selection of local and internationally sourced furniture, fittings and materials. APP and the project team worked closely with Starwood to deliver these components within the allocated budget.

The major challenge faced by the APP team was to undertake all refurbishments while the hotel remained operational. This required detailed staging in consultation with engineering services as well as Hotel Operations to minimise both guest disruption as well as room outage time. APP created buffer floors above and below those being refurbished, so that noise and intrusion were significantly reduced. Additionally, the defect-free handover regime was worked up in close consultation with the Client representative as well as the contractor.
