Ardmore has completed the first major stage of Ten Trinity Square, as the Four Seasons Hotel London officially opened its doors this week.
Ardmore was appointed as principal contractor on the scheme in January 2015 to carry out the sensitive restoration of the original building, due for completion in 2017.
Steven McGee, construction director at Ardmore commented:
“In the past 24 months we have worked with architects Auckett Swanke and engineers Waterman Group as well as an on-site workforce of up to 1,000 staff to deliver one of the best new hotels in the world
“There have been several challenges along the way, not least in integrating new state of the art mechanical and electrical services into a heritage building. A demanding programme required us to phase the MEP installation to suit early accommodation, and carry out testing and commissioning of services in client occupied spaces.
“I am extremely proud to have watched our managers and staff overcome every single challenge the building has thrown at them whilst driving towards this handover. The fruits of their labour are reflected in the exceptional quality of the hotel and we are looking forward to continuing this success in delivering the remainder of the project.”
James Byrne, Ardmore director added:
“I am delighted that we have been able to reach this important milestone and are well on the way to the completion of this prestigious project. The opening of the Four Seasons London builds on our unrivalled track record of delivering complex construction schemes in the capital and our experience on landmark projects like Corinthia, London and the forthcoming Ned at Poultry has helped us deliver our client’s vision for the Four Seasons at Ten Trinity Square.”

Ten Trinity Square website has now been updated and there is a lot of information about the residences, amenities, the building.
Peter Bill from Evening Standard calls Ten Trinity Square the Savoy of the City and gives us an idea about the prices of the luxury residences for sale in the building.
To get early cash back, some of the 34 flats and three penthouses will be pre-sold. "We will be looking for £2500 per square foot," says Suparman of the 90,000 square feet of space with a potential income of £225 million. A couple of agents at the launch wrinkled their noses at £2500. The flats are too big and many face other buildings across narrow streets, they felt.
The three penthouses will go to auction says Suparman, who hopes the 7800-square-foot unit with the best view will fetch £20 million. Ong said the flats and hotel rooms need to be large because "space is a luxury". If you ever want a spacious room in the City's Savoy, it will cost from £450. Luxury.

The former Port of London Authority headquarters at 10 Trinity Square is to be reborn as the Square Mile’s first “super luxury” hotel and residences by plans to be published this week, reports Financial Times.
The group is to implement plans to form a 120-bedroom hotel with 37 private apartments designed by David Collins, as well as an exclusive private members’ club, three restaurants and a spa. KOP has resubmitted revised plans for the scheme, which it hopes will be granted permission this summer. Completion of the project is expected by 2014.
