We completed two projects at the Trump Turnberry Hotel, located on the beautiful Ayrshire coast in Scotland. One to upgrade the hotel’s guest accommodation and another to construct a new grand ballroom.
Due to the remote coastal location of the site, sourcing sufficient labour for the project was challenging, especially as the fast-track programme required regular out of hours work to meet the deadline.
During the project we accommodated a number of design changes from the customer, resulting in a project value increase of over 20%.
As well as building the new ballroom and refurbishing bedrooms, we also delivered external enhancements as part of the project. This included replacing all windows with new high-performance glazed units, repairing the roof and dormers, and renewing all of the elevations of the 109-year-old building.
To alleviate travel issues, we sourced accommodation for ISG site staff and used local Ayrshire sub-contractors. To keep on schedule when changes were made, we split some work packages, such as decoration and joinery finishes, to ease the pressure on our sub-contractors.
We worked with Historic Scotland to manufacture any timber or plaster mouldings that could not be repaired in situ. Our joinery and plaster sub-contractors took regular samples from the site to create an exact match of specialist mouldings.
