Bilfinger stays on at luxury Knightsbridge hotel

One of London’s most prestigious hotels, located on the edge of Hyde Park in Knightsbridge, has extended its contract for mechanical and electrical engineering (M&E) with total facilities management provider Bilfinger HSG Facility Management. The new contract is worth in excess of £200,000. 

Bilfinger first started working in the unnamed hotel in May 2012, with one full-time engineer delivering planned preventative maintenance to all plant and equipment. The contract was soon extended to two full-time engineers.

In April last year, the hotel asked Bilfinger to benchmark its specialist sub-contractor costs for the engineering services to a range of plant including chillers, generators, the building management system, catering equipment and laundry equipment. Following that process, Bilfinger took over the management of the specialist sub-contracts, saving the hotel £70,000, thanks to a bundled M&E approach.

The hotel boasts a full gym, numerous spa treatment rooms, a 25-metre swimming pool, a cinema, and a stunning ballroom in addition to its luxury suites.

Charles Sinton, sales director UK at Bilfinger HSG, said:

“We are delighted to have had extended our first contract in the hotel sector, particularly with such a prestigious brand. This will allow us to demonstrate our technical expertise in a challenging and demanding environment.”
