In a long list of completed major projects, we've consistently demonstrated that well-executed refurbishments yield commercial viability and garner popularity with both local regulators and the public.

Our team employs innovative strategies to rejuvenate existing hotel spaces, optimising layouts to meet modern needs while integrating energy-efficient solutions to minimise environmental impact. 

We are also highly experienced in handling heritage buildings and are adept at conducting sympathetic retrofitting and preserving historic fabrics. Notable examples include The Grand Hotel Birmingham and the Belle Époque architectural gems Excelsior Hotel Gallia in Milan and the Ritz Hotel in Madrid. 

Our pioneering solutions have enabled ambitious extensions, such as a five-storey basement expansion at Claridge’s London undertaken while maintaining full operational functionality. Similarly, our expertise ensured that the emblematic Westin Palace Hotel in Madrid remained operational during renovation works. 

From updating infrastructure to implementing cutting-edge technologies, we prioritise maintaining operational continuity while enhancing the hotel's overall aesthetic appeal and comfort. With meticulous planning and seamless execution, Arup ensures that each retrofit or refurbishment project not only meets but exceeds the expectations of both operators and guests alike.
