VINCI Construction has signed a contract to renovate the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park hotel in Knightsbridge.

The value of the project from Mandarin Oriental Group is approximately £60 million.

Following a one-year Pre-Construction Services Agreement period, the VINCI Construction teams, working for the first time under the PLENDI brand, will be responsible for renovating all rooms and public areas in the hotel.

The 12,000 sqm refurbishment will be carried out in two nine-month phases. The first phase will cover all rooms in the Knightsbridge wing; the second phase the rooms overlooking Hyde Park. Two large 165 m² penthouse suites with an exceptional view of the park will be built as an extension on the 9th-floor roof. The hotel will remain open with reduced inventory throughout the works.

The grand building next to One Hyde Park development dates back to the late 19th century and will be rehabilitated using the finest materials. The VINCI Construction teams will work with Europe’s premier specialist craft providers, such as the Portuguese firm Bec and Bourneuf in France for outdoor woodworking, the French and Italian grouping Ildei Sfim for marble, Interna in Italy for finishings and Gohard in France for gilding. A wide range of very high-quality marble will be used, including stone from Thessaloniki, Greece in the bathrooms (floor, walls and sinks) and Carrare (Calacatta Oro) marble in the lobby. Antique mirrors and headboards will be worked in metal mesh or class incrusted with gold leaf.

Building information Modeling (BIM) was used from the design stage onward to fast-track the survey of the existing hotel and offer collaborative 3D development options to support client decision-making. BIM will also be used to optimise the worksite. For this project, VINCI Construction recently won a BIM Golden Awards 2016 prize in the international category.
The project architect is PURCELL and interior decoration has been entrusted to JOYCE WANG STUDIO and THIANY DESIGN.

VINCI Construction’s expertise in exceptional projects has been brought together under the PLENDI brand
With more than three decades of experience in designing, building and renovating high-end structures, VINCI Construction has now brought its specialists in exceptional projects together under the PLENDI brand. With such projects as the extension of the Shangri-La hotel and the Mandarin Oriental hotels in Paris and in London, the Peninsula Paris and the Plaza Athénée hotels in the heart of the French capital, the Four Seasons hotels in Prague and Budapest, a five-start Hilton Hotel in Vietnam and the flagship Louis Vuitton store on the Champs-Elysées, VINCI Construction is an acknowledged benchmark in exceptional and prestige projects.

With its new PLENDI brand, VINCI Construction links together companies operating in the upmarket sector wishing to design, build or renovate luxury residential and prestige hotel properties.
