Checking out of the Savoy Hotel
Lucas Fit Out has completed a programme of specialist refurbishment and finishing work at London’s famous Savoy Hotel. The demanding 8½ week programme was part of the completion of the major £220 million, three-year refurbishment programme of the whole hotel, which is managed by Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. Lucas Fit Out carried out restoration and finishing work to floors, walls and ceilings to a number of famous public rooms including the River Room, Lincoln Room and the Manhattan Room and bar as well as other public areas in the hotel. The Edwardian and Art Deco themes so rich throughout the Savoy required careful, specialist treatment including replacing stretched fabric panels, reburnishing elaborate balustrades and ironwork, investigating and matching original colours, detailed repair and decoration of fabulously ornate cornicework, repointing of marble surfaces, repair of polished joinery and the refurbishment and replacement of intricate light fittings. Our team completed the works to the highest standards and the strictest timetable to comply with the grand opening plans of the iconic hotel.
