Vinci Construction wins £60m London Mandarin Oriental Hotel revamp



Vinci Construction has signed a £60m contract to renovate the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park hotel in London.

Following a one-year pre-construction services agreement, Vinci Construction, working for the first time under the Plendi brand, will renovate all rooms and public areas in the hotel.

The 120,000 sq ft refurbishment will be carried out in two nine-month phases. The first phase will cover all rooms in the Knightsbridge wing and the second phase rooms overlooking Hyde Park.

Two large penthouse suites will be built as an extension on the 9th floor roof as the hotel remains open.

Vinci Construction has bought together a team of firms specialising in renovating luxury residential and hotels under the new Plendi brand.

Portuguese firm Bec and French specialist Bourneuf will deliver outdoor woodworking, the French and Italian grouping Ildei Sfim will supply and fit marble for interiors while Italy’s Interna will be responsible for finishings and French specialist Gohard will carry out gilding.

Great news! I'm sure the renovation will be genuine.
Edit: The Battersea Power Station is such an architectural marvel.

I wonder if the building is going to have different shades of glass on the upper part, or that's just the sunshine reflecting from the building, anyhow, I can spot some greenery on the terrace so I guess this qualifies as landscape architecture, which is always good to see.
Edit: I like the brickwork of The Residence at Nine Elms SW8.

It's so exciting to see the first piece of cladding installed on the Scalpel. My first impression is that it looks darker than I expected, but I'm sure it will look amazing. It appears to have great quality and that's what's most important, to me.

that was my first impression too, but on close inspection I think there's some sort of protective sheet or covering behind the glass making it look darker than it is.

Now that I've seen the pictures again, there seems to be some protective covering indeed, otherwise the glass appears transparent.
