EIC HOLDS 'FIRM' POSITION IN LEISURE INDUSTRY
EIC continues its relationship with the luxury hospitality group, Firmdale Hotels having secured a contract valued at £800,000 for the design and installation of electrical services at the company's latest hotel next to the Haymarket Theatre, near Trafalgar Square.
This is the leading mechanical and electrical provider's fourth London-based contract for Firmdale, having completed work on three other hotels situated in Knightsbridge, Charlotte Street, and Dean Street, in Soho.
The Haymarket hotel promises to uphold Firmdale's reputation for launching exclusive, luxury boutique hotels as the refurbished listed building is expected to include private screening rooms and sitting rooms, a chic bar and a private townhouse to be accessed from Suffolk Street.
Electrical work includes the design and installation of an electrical distribution system, lighting and small power, fire alarm, cctv, security, satellite television and data systems.
Joint managing director of EIC, Nigel Le Marechal is delighted that the company's on-going relationship with Firmdale Hotels is continuing to develop: "Our work with Firmdale allows us to demonstrate our expertise and knowledge of the hotel industry whilst allowing us to add to our proven portfolio of luxury, individual leisure destinations. Firmdale is extremely hands-on - with the company taking on the role of main contractor - which gives us the opportunity to liaise directly with the Client and to have the best working knowledge of what is required to deliver the most satisfying results."
Ron Cheles, project director for Firmdale Hotels comments: "EIC is an extremely able and reliable partner who has helped us work through and around any minor problems we have encountered in the building process. The team is thoroughly professional and has constantly delivered on time and on budget over the years that we've worked together, removing any of the concerns relating to meeting scheduled opening dates and maintaining the high standards that our guests are accustomed to."
