Turner & Townsend wins contract on major New York hotel

UK consultant Turner & Townsend is to provide project support services for a multimillion dollar upgrade of the Langham Place skyscraper in New York.

The refurbishment of the 190m tower, which is located in Manhattan, will aim to "enhance the hotel’s reputation for chic, contemporary style".

T&T will refurbish 214 guest rooms across 22 floors and has previously remodeled the third-floor conference room suites and fourth-floor gym.

It will also modernise the back-of-house operations and main entrance lobby area, and will help install a spa.

The project is being carried out while the hotel remains open to guests.

Stephen Gibson, director of cost management for Turner & Townsend Ferzan Robbins, said: "T&T’s combination of global best practice and local market knowledge means it is uniquely well-equipped to meet that challenge.  

"We swiftly assembled a project team to document Langham Place’s current operations, and set up effective project controls and lines of communication to give the client real-time access to the critical information it needs to make effective decisions."

The refresh of the five-star hotel is expected to be finished by summer 2016.

T&T has previously completed work on Langham hotels in Melbourne and Sydney.
