Brighton win for Pinnacle Group

Pinnacle Group has secured its first Brighton-based contract to provide management services to residential apartments above an historic seafront hotel.

Kew Green Hotels, which owns and manages over 55 hotels across the world, has appointed Pinnacle to manage 64 leasehold apartments in the building, which overlooks Brighton’s Grand Pier.

The former Bedford Hotel, now Holiday Inn Brighton-Seafront, is an iconic landmark in the city, dating back to 1829. It counted Charles Dickens among its historic guests, though the current iteration of the building opened in 1967. Today, 11 floors of the hotel are used for luxury residential apartments.

Alongside residential management of the apartments, which begins this week, Pinnacle will also work in close collaboration with the hotel team on shared building services.

Commenting on the new contract award, Alex Elsy, Director of Assets and Residential Management at Pinnacle, said: ‘As we celebrate our thirtieth anniversary this year, we’re delighted to be expanding into Brighton, especially with such an iconic building.

“This new contract represents yet another geographical expansion of our market-leading services, enabling us to deliver for local leaseholders while also exploring further opportunities in the region.

“We look forward to working with our partner, Kew Green Hotels, to maintain high quality management standards and create a first-rate customer experience for the residents.”

Kew Green Hotels’ portfolio covers several leading global brands including IHG Hotels & Resorts, Hilton and Marriott International, alongside managing several independent hotels and operating over 25 Holiday Inns under franchise across Europe.

Chris Dexter, CEO of Kew Green Hotels said, “We look forward to working with the team at Pinnacle, supporting them in delivering exceptional services to residents at Bedford Towers, complemented by the operational excellence delivered by our team at the Holiday Inn Brighton-Seafront. At Kew Green Hotels, we set ourselves apart by combining years of experience with innovative ideas to deliver outstanding hotel services, delivering exceptional returns for hotel owners and partners throughout our portfolio of independent hotels through to global brands.”

Navigating FM efforts to sustainability 

As environmental protection demands unified action, transparency, and heightened awareness, Biological Preparations has launched an initiative to catalyse sustainability efforts within the FM sector.

FM businesses face unique challenges and heightened expectations of eco-initiatives from their clients. Yet, behind the scenes in FM businesses, many environmental initiatives, rollouts and even planning, are not broadcasted and transparent.

Have your say: Sustainability Trends in FM 

The UK biotech company’s five-minute, anonymous FM-focused survey, offers FM professionals of all hierarchies with a platform to voice their perspectives and share their experiences. The results from this survey will then be analysed and presented as an industry-specific report, which aims to guide FM businesses helping them benchmark trends, gain clarity on industry challenges, and map out goals and metrics towards sustainability.
