Construction consultancy the Sweett Group has been appointed to provide contract administration and support services for the fit out of the Shangri-La Hotel in the Shard.
The recently rebranded company will also oversee planning, logistics and risk management advice and quality monitoring.
Located on the 34-52 floors of what will be the EU’s tallest building, the 5-star, 202 room Shagri-La At the Shard is the first new-build 5 star hotel in central London in over a decade.
Sweett Group global head of hospitality Paul Nash said: “We are delighted to have been selected by the Shangri-La Hotels Group to support them with the delivery of their first hotel in London. We are proud to be part of the team Shangri-La has assembled from across the UK and China to ensure that their vision for this landmark building is realised.”
Dean Webster, Sweett Group’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “Having already delivered a number of projects for Shangri-La in China, today’s announcement is a testament to the Group’s global expertise and capability in servicing global clients across our network of offices.”
