Park Hotel Kilmarnock Refurbishment Continues
What a start to 2020 for Worksmart Contracts! We can now announce the agreement of a contract for the new extension to the Park Hotel in Kilmarnock. This extension will form the Café Bar facility and work on the fit-out and refurbishment begins this month.
This follows on from a hugely successful 2019, and continues our working relationship with The Park Hotel. Worksmart Contracts has previously undertaken other fit-out and refurbishment works within the Park Hotel, which is one of Ayrshire’s leading hotels and function facilities.
The Refurbishment Master Plan
This particular project forms part of the client’s master plan for the hotel, which is owned and run by Billy Bowie, Mandy Bowie and Gordon Anthony. Award-winning local architects, Thomson Hunter Architects, designed the facility and will continue their own run of projects with the client on this project. Thomson Hunter continue to demonstrate their mantra of understanding their clients’ design dreams and requirements and provide them with a superior bespoke service.
Following on from a busy and successful Christmas and New Year, The Park Hotel has once again decided to work with Worksmart Contracts and Thomson Hunter Architects for the next phase of development of the hotel. The upcoming Fit-Out will provide further facilities and benefits to the hotel and its guests.
Previous Fit Out and Refurbishment Works
Initial stages of the development in 2019 saw a new toilet-block extension being added to the main function suite. This provided additional high-quality female, male and disabled toilet facilities. Next, we relocated the Blues Restaurant from its existing position on the first floor to a more accessible area on the ground floor. In doing so, we also gave it a fresh, vibrant feel to make it even more appetising for hotel guests and the public. With the relocation of the restaurant, space was created for the new first floor function suite which overlooks Kilmarnock Football Club’s Rugby Park ground.
These three projects required a great deal of flexibility, as they were being undertaken in a live and busy hotel and function facility. Our goals were achieved successfully as we worked alongside the client’s team to ensure the safe running of the existing facility at the same time as the works were carried out to the three affected areas over a period of several months.
Positive Feedback on Fit Outs
Guests have received the new renovations very well and many positive reviews of the new facilities have been left online. We are excited to begin work on the new Café Bar extension, which will further improve the experience of visitors and guests.
The new Café Bar extension will be added to the front right-hand side of the existing hotel. It will directly face Kilmarnock Football Club and will offer something different to the guests. It will make for the perfect pre-match ritual for families attending the football. The café will be a welcome addition to the hotel and will complement the other three phases. The extension offers new indoor and outdoor facility space to be used for food and drink with a great outlook.
