Spring 2017

It’s been a busy start to the year for CW Consulting with new commissions obtained, successful completion of projects and progressive discussions with potential new Clients.

After a hectic final push for Completion and Handover of an exciting new Wine Bar & Restaurant in the heart of London’s most affluent area, Clarette opened its doors to the public at the end of April.  Transformation of the former Tudor Rose Public House in Marylebone into a vibrant and upmarket Wine Bar and Restaurant over 5 floors was completed in just 12 weeks and has already received great reviews in The Times, Time Out London and on social media.

Still in the Food & Beverage world, works are soon to get underway for Middletons Steakhouse and Grill to fit-out their 7th Restaurant over two floors in Bridge Street, Peterborough. This 250 Seater Restaurant will offer the same relaxed and informal dining experience as their other successful establishments. Works are to start in June and an opening date expected at the end of August.

Moving on, to the resurgence of the Industrial Sector and in collaboration with Hale Architecture, CWC have been instructed by Luton Borough Council on behalf of GKN Aerospace to undertake a Stage C Concept Design Report for the proposed re-location of GKN’s present 25,000 sq.ft. manufacturing facility located close to Luton Airport.  This is in response to Luton’s long term road strategy around the airport and ultimate development potential

Finally, CWC are back in the Hotel Sector with 2 new commissions. Firstly, the owners of the recently opened Ampersand Hotel in South Kensington are developing their second London Hotel in the heart of the City and CWC have been instructed to provide a Watching Brief to oversee this very complex project.  This 5 Star Luxury Boutique Hotel is scheduled to open at the end of the year offering 100 rooms with Ground Floor Conference facilities and a themed Restaurant and Bar.

Secondly, the prestigious Landmark Hotel in Marylebone, Central London are undertaking a major refurbishment to their Kitchen which serves the Winter Garden Restaurant as well as the Grand Ballroom. CWC have been commissioned to undertake full Project Management, Quantity Surveying, Architectural Design & Contract Administration services to deliver this complex re-planning project which will see the Kitchen and Restaurants it serves close for a shorter period of time as possible to minimise disruption to its operations. Works are scheduled to commence in January 2018.

A New Year ….. 2017!

CW Consulting have now increased their headcount to 4 and subsequently have moved to new offices situated very centrally in Redhill, Surrey.

This year is already looking promising for the company with new Clients acquired such as GKN Aerospace, The Ampersand Hotel & Hauser Wirth, who operate the widely acclaimed Durslade farm in Somerset.

Existing Clients continue to expand their present portfolios with Tapas Revolution recently opening their 6th outlet at the new Eldon Square in Newcastle in February & Middletons Steak House & Grill commencing works on a new 250 seater Restaurant in Peterborough in April.

Works are also hopeful to commence shortly at the new Land Securities Nova Development’s Restaurant Quarter in London Victoria for new Client Bone Daddies.

Finally, works are progressing well on site for new French Client Clarette who are transforming the former and iconic Tudor Rose Public House in Marylebone into a chic, contemporary style Wine Bar and Restaurant with Private Dining facilities, spread over three floors in this Mock Tudor corner landmark on Blandford Street/Manchester Street.

As a result, we are already discussing refurbishment opportunities elsewhere in this neighbourhood with other Operators.
