Swan Group was awarded this project direct from the client, The Esplanade Hotel, under the guidance of Kish Consulting. The project scope was to refurbish the alfresco area and upgrade the adjoining dining room to maximise the overall service space to accommodate an ever increasing demand in patron numbers.
It incuded the installation of a new cellar area including a cool room for keg services and storage, as well as full demolition and refurbishment of the "speak easy" style New Bar Area to incorporate a retrospective cosmopolitan design.The main challenges the delivery team faced on the project was due to the age of the building. Unexpected items were uncovered during demolition, which required urgent redesigns to be able to move forward. This required quick planning, especially due to the project's location.
