Newhey Carpets, a leading British manufacturer and specialist designer of innovative, high performance and sustainable commercial carpets, produced over 20,000 square metres of Graphics Tufted and Colortec+ carpet for the Park Inn by Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre London Heathrow.
Rezidor’s mid-market brand Park Inn by Radisson Hotels have invested £50 million to refurbish 21 of their UK sites. The Park Inn by Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre London Heathrow is one of Rezidor’s flagship hotels. The hotel was granted £13 million of the total investment figure to refurbish the guestrooms, corridors and public areas.
The hotel which is situated only 1.6 kilometres from Heathrow Airport, wanted to introduce a stylish contemporary feel to the interior. Newhey Carpets worked closely with interior design practice Trevillion Interiors, based in Hertfordshire, to create the brand standard designs to suit both business and leisure guests. A simple but sophisticated 3 colour Graphics Tufted design was chosen for the guestrooms incorporating a different colour scheme for each of the 5 floors. The corridors mirrored the colour scheme of the guestrooms, where a Colortec+ construction was specified due to the requirement for panel and runner features throughout.
The renovation featured and air-force blue and smoke grey colour scheme, which fitted perfectly with the hotels brand design. The newly refurbished hotel has 895 guestrooms and can cater for up to 700 delegates in the stylish new conference and meeting facilities, which have the largest capacity in Heathrow for residential conferences.
The whole renovation project was ongoing throughout 2014 and also included carpet being supplied to Park Inn by Radisson Manchester and Telford. There are also a number of other sites that are currently at design stage.
