Established in June 2002, the Park Hotel in Kilmarnock was built in the grounds of Rugby Park, the stadium of the town’s cherished football team. Over the years, the hotel has been host to many events such as weddings, corporate events, tribute concerts, football events and charity fundraisers. The venue was purchased by local entrepreneurs and Killie FC owners, Billy and Mandy Bowie and has since become part of the fabric of the town. The business prides itself on its strong links with the community and the fact that it’s one of Scotland’s only football stadium and hotel complexes.

Since taking on ownership of the hotel, Billy and Mandy Bowie have invested capital in developing the establishment and brand including the addition of function rooms and restaurant space, all of which Worksmart Contracts Ltd have had the pleasure of delivering. As part of the refurbishment, the hotel was looking to create a purpose-built café and bar for multiple different uses throughout the day.

In 2020, after a successful competitive tender process, Worksmart Contracts Ltd were drafted in along with Thomson Hunter Architects to complete the task of extending the current structure to make space for the new facility. The works comprised 24 weeks from foundations right through to interior fit out. The project began with a groundworks package followed by the installation of the steel frame. In addition, to ensure the space was flooded with as much natural light as possible, curtain walling and bi-parting auto doors were fitted round the structure. This helps keep energy costs low and gives visitors first class views of the football ground opposite. As well as this, a new suspended ceiling with environmentally friendly LED lighting features creates a space that reflects the top-quality service that the hotel offers to its guests. We also managed the installation of air conditioning and ventilation systems to make sure that customers are comfortable.

The new restaurant has proven a hit with guests and locals alike with many people regularly visiting the restaurant from across the country. The project was a success due to the excellent collaboration between the client and Thomson Hunter Architects and it has greatly enhanced the visitor experience at the hotel. Worksmart Contracts Ltd worked well with our friends at the Park Hotel and we were pleased to be involved with the phased refurbishment of this valued community asset.
