Chester Hotel

Refurbishment and extension to 5 star hotel

At the beginning of January 2019, we were awarded the refurbishment and extension of the Chester Hotel in Aberdeen. The project comprised of the repair and maintenance of the roof structure, External alterations to the existing structure along with a new bar and restaurant extension.

Works were carried out over a 60-week period and included the installation of a fully re-engineered electrical and plumbing & Heating system. As the buildings are all listed this was done in close conjunction with Aberdeen City Council and with the added pressure of the hotel still in operation.

Following the completion of phases one and two at the Chester Hotel several years earlier, we were delighted to be awarded the next phase of works.
