The iconic 19-story Royal Lancaster London, one of the UK’s premier hotels, provides panoramic views of London, offers 411 beds and world-class event space, and includes the 14,000-sq.-ft. Nine Kings suite.
In 2014, Cumming was retained to provide project management, cost management, and CDM principal designer services. Over the past four years, the hotel has been upgraded to a more contemporary and luxurious 5-star hotel, with design services provided by Studio Proof. The project was completed in multiple phases, with the first including the capital plant replacements and a two-year refurbishment of all 411 bedrooms. Phase two involved updating the hotel lobby and public areas, as well as refurbishing the Park Lounge Bar and Restaurant to allow guests to relax and enjoy the views of London’s famous Hyde Park.
The hotel remained in operation during both phases. Cumming worked closely with the hotel’s team, the designers, and the contactors to minimize construction impacts and ensure a first-class experience for guests.
