Havelock has been awarded a prestigious fit-out contract for the Hilton Resort and Spa currently being built by Robertson Construction Group as part of their contract with Henry Boot Developments (HBD) to deliver the new Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) facility for Aberdeen City Council.
Havelock will fit out all areas of the hotel, including front-of-house, back-of-house, 200 guest bedrooms and suites, complete with high-end veneers and finishes for a superior four-star look-and-feel.
The full interior contracting scope of work includes the supply of furniture, with Havelock manufacturing all case goods at its 200,000 sq ft factory in Kirkcaldy - one of the UK’s largest in-house timber, metal and solid surfacing manufacturing facilities. A mix of in-house joinery and site based skills will complete the on-site fit-out to ensure the quality of delivery expected from a recognised global hotel brand.
The Hilton Resort and Spa is one of three hotels to be constructed at the extended AECC venue, as well as a new 12,500 capacity arena, conference halls, a subterranean multipurpose space, Energy Centre, car parking and public space. Robertson Group has been appointed as main contractor to deliver the new AECC. Scheduled to open in 2019, the new AECC is an important part of Aberdeen City Council’s plan to grow the city’s economy.
