Converting the former Midlands Bank building into an upmarket hotel was a daunting task, particularly as the building had been empty for a decade.
NDY provided designs for the Mechanical, Electrical & Public Health (MEPH), security and communications services.
These solutions required careful planning of plant areas and service routes, for such as heating, cooling, electrical fire, public health services, cables, data lines and ventilation infrastructure to ensure that the heritage listed features of the interior, whilst creating a space still capable of providing comfort and supporting a luxurious environment.
- Minimal visual disruption of heritage décor
- Preservation of irreplaceable fixtures, such as vent covers and lighting
- Minimal penetrations in vault area, now converted to a members club. This saved time, cost and ensured that a maximum amount of the internal surfaces could be exposed
- Lower costs for environmental control without compromising comfort.
