This Month in Channel Islands Construction Focus- Issue 4.3
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Construction: Channel Islands Construction Focus.
In this month’s issue we take a look at the refurbishment of L’Horizon Beach Hotel & Spa; we cast our eye over St. Philippe de Torteval; and we check in at The Captains Hotel.
A £2m refurbishment programme of the AA Four Silver Star L’Horizon Beach Hotel & Spa in Jersey has been completed. With a rich history dating back over 150 years, the renovation included an overhaul of the hotel bedrooms, function spaces, lounge areas and spa. All 106 guestrooms and suites at the hotel – with the majority featuring balconies providing uninterrupted sea views – have been refreshed, and new electronic key systems and reverse cycle air conditioning has been installed allowing touch-of-button access and temperature control.
Meanwhile, located high up on the south-west tip of Guernsey, St. Philippe de Torteval (or Torteval Church as its more commonly known) has undergone significant repair works to resolve the long term water penetration problems in the spire and tower.
And finally, The Captains Hotel in St Martins, Guernsey has recently undergone some refurbishment work to provide the popular location with a new bar and alfresco dining area. Work on the project began in March this year and was completed on time after a 16 week turn around. Speaking to Premier Construction: Channel Islands, The Captains Hotel leaseholder Alison De La Mare said: “We have run The Captains for 23 years and had a large private dining room upstairs but we were getting very busy downstairs. As we were constantly busy downstairs it was becoming more and more frustrating not having the room used on a daily basis. The only way we could make sure that it was used every day was to get an architect in and create another entrance. It all evolved from that and went on to include a fully functioning bar and some decking outside.”
With all this and more, look no further than Channel Islands Construction Focus for the latest awe-inspiring developments that continue to shape the architectural landscape.
