Summary of works: Refurbishment of the Barbican Hospitality Areas
Description of works – Various works were carried out during the Barbican’s summer performance and exhibition recess including:
The refurbishment of the Martini Bar to include bespoke joinery, mechanical and electrical alterations to existing services.
The renewal of bespoke Barbican ‘Tiger print’ carpet and floor coverings.
Refurbishment of the Fountain Room reception and hospitality suite including installation of specialist lighting, power and audio visual system.
Refurbishment to the Stalls Lounge bar area including bespoke joinery, flooring and installation of a new lighting scheme.
Challenges successfully overcome:
Working to the exact time constraints of the Barbican Centre’s Summer Recess with productions, exhibitions and performances arranged several months in advance.
Working within a live hospitality environment with the Barbican Centre still open to the public, 7 days a week.
City Centre location and minimal storage and delivery space on site.
