Ahmarra Installations completes a supply and fit contract for the new ME London Hotel, designed by Foster + Partners
Leading Spanish hotel and resort operator Sol Melia has opened its fifth ME Hotel. This £45 million project opened in December 2012 and occupies a landmark site in London’s West End.
Ahmarra’s contract, through the main contractor Gleeds, was worth over £500,000. It consisted of supplying and fitting numerous elements including riser doorsets, forming softwood partitions and full height, factory finished, black gloss lacquered panels.
Formerly the site of the famous “Casa Marconi” and Citi Bank building, ME London has been designed by renowned British architects Foster + Partners as a cutting-edge, contemporary hotel and joins the ranks of their signature projects including the British Museum, the ‘Gherkin’ and Beijing Airport.
The 157-room ME London captures incredible views of the city. The property features two destination restaurants and bars at ground and roof level, as well as a convention centre.
