Ahmarra Doors make their debut at the O2!
Ahmarra supplied and fitted over 300 severe duty timber fire doors in an FSC cherry veneer for the new 5-star hotel situated on Greenwich Peninsula.
Ahmarra’s contract consisted of manufacturing and installing fire rated doorsets for the public areas including reception, restaurants, meeting rooms, ballroom, toilets and spa areas.
“Our experience of manufacturing doors for luxury hotels has enabled us to offer a premium product, which not only looked great but was priced to fit the strict budget controls” said Martyn Fennell, Ahmarra’s Business Development Manager.
The InterContinental London – The O2 is adjacent to the world-renowned arena, The O2, and close to Greenwich’s famous attractions. The stunning 453-room hotel brings a new level of luxury accommodation to the area. Alongside its five destination-inspired restaurants and bars, including The Peninsula Restaurant and rooftop sky bar, Eighteen, the hotel boasts a world-class health spa and sumptuous accommodation – including 59 suites – and the most breath-taking, far-reaching views of London.
The hotel’s dedicated conference centre boasts a 3,100sqm pillar-free ballroom – one of the largest in Europe – with an additional 19 meeting rooms and an impressive 1,600sqm pre-function space exposing dramatic views of Canary Wharf.
Hasham Soliman, General Manager of the hotel, said: “We are thrilled to have opened the doors to our eagerly awaited luxury hotel in one of the capital’s most vibrant new entertainment and events districts. At InterContinental London – The O2, we have truly exceptional facilities for business and leisure travellers visiting the city and an incredible team ready to put this hotel firmly on London’s centre stage.”
Ahmarra’ s reputation for excellence has led to it supplying timber doors for some of the UK’s finest interiors, from private homes to luxury hotels and commercial buildings. Current 5-star London hotel projects include The Mondrian at Sea Containers House, The Metropolitan by Como and The Mandarin Oriental, which are both on Park Lane.
