Overview

Commenced in June 2015 with an overall completion in July 2016, the Le Meridien Room refurbishment project in KL Sentral marks the third project to be undertaken by ISG for the customer.

Spanning 26 floors,  7 room types and  419 keys, this project is now well underway with a total of 125 rooms completed effective end October 2015. ISG’s scope of works covered all interior finishes and MEP infrastructure associated with bedrooms, bathrooms, corridors and lift lobbies with a view to transforming and reinvigorating the guest experience.

Refreshed zest

Introducing significant connectivity improvements, the new rooms offer a refreshed zest to what is the typical contemporary Le Meridien design and brand standard.

Within the room bays themselves, one of the main briefing requirements was to “open up” the room with increased levels of lighting and daylight.  As such, following the strip out of the bathroom modules, a new window aperture was introduced to the bathroom/bedroom division partition to offer translucent light penetration into the bathroom itself.

Programme

Constructed over multiple phases, the room roll out programme essentially evolved around a 56 day cycle per floor with a start to start lag of 10 days between floors.  This meant that at any point in time there were 4-5 floors of fit out taking place which spanned approximately 75 rooms as a general rule.  Either side of the four floors of fit out, the hotel retained 2 buffer empty floors to limit impact on staying guests associated with noise transfer from floors being fitted out.
