Tang Interiors, a group company of Colmore Tang Construction, has been appointed to create a brand new conference and events facility at the deluxe four-star Park Regis hotel in Birmingham.
The firm - which specialises in refurbishment and interiors for the commercial, retail, restaurant and hospitality sectors - is remodelling the hotel’s 16th floor into a 5,250 sq ft open-plan conference space for up to 440 delegates, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering 360° views across the city.
The 15th floor - where the current conference facilities are - will also be transformed to create additional meeting rooms and break-out areas, as well as a new bar area.
Worth £750,000, the project involves stripping out the existing bar and restaurant on the top floor and transforming it into a completely versatile space.
“We’ve been appointed to deliver an inspirational conference and events space that has the wow factor but is still in keeping with the luxurious feel of the rest of the hotel,” explained Carl Hubbard, Operations Director at Tang Interiors.
The firm will construct two new bars and install contemporary lighting, state-of-the-art audiovisual and new air conditioning to provide the highest level of comfort and technology for delegates and visitors, while specially-selected furniture and upholstery will complete the look.
Tang Interiors will also install Bolon tiled flooring; an innovative Swedish product that is impervious to spillage and offers sound attenuation.
“We’ve worked closely with Park Regis and architects Tibbatts Abel to design every aspect of the space so that we can deliver a high-quality conference facility that reflects the prestigious brand and ensures the hotel remains one of the most popular city centre venues for hosting events,” continued Carl.
Work started at the beginning of April and the new conference facilities are expected to be complete by mid-June. The hotel will remain open as usual for the duration of the refurbishment.
“As interior fit out specialists, we are used to working in live environments and therefore understand the importance of keeping noise and disruption to an absolute minimum,” said Carl. “We are liaising with hotel staff on a daily basis to ensure guests are not disturbed by our work.”
As well as the new conference space, Tang Interiors will also provide a dedicated entrance on floor one which will take delegates directly to the 16th floor, where there will be a new welcoming reception and cloakroom area. External signage will also be upgraded in keeping with the new reception area.
