Contractor: Wallis Construction for initial build and Balfour Beatty for the extension
Type of works: Doorsets and architectural joinery

Located on the doorstep of Tower Bridge, this award winning, luxury hotel was an immediate success when it opened in 2005 and due to this Apex Hotels secured the adjacent property to build a £6 million, 49 bedroom extension to the hotel in 2009.

After successfully completing the original hotel, Ahmarra were selected to install bedrooms and corridors with doorsets and joinery. The order also included custom-made wardrobes, solid walnut flooring and the extensive use of walnut veneer on bedheads, ceiling panels, lobby panelling and the service desk. The most challenging task was to install the higly bespoke floor to ceiling, mosaic tiled elliptical feature.

“The quality of our product and service stood the test of time since the original build in 2005, and this ensured that the client was happy to select us again for the extension” says Richard Panrucker from Ahmarra Installations.
