Luxury seafront hotel, The Grand Brighton, has announced plans for a multi-million pound façade restoration project.
The refurbishment, due to be completed in autumn 2017, will kick off today on the East Wing of the building and then be rolled out in four phases.
The work is the latest project in the wider investment programme at the hotel, which began in 2014 when it was sold to independent owners.
The new enhancements will include the installation of a new lighting system, new windows and balconies for sea-facing rooms and full insulation, as well as a re-render of the front of the building.
J Davies Building Limited will be the main contractor having worked on a number of projects with The Grand, including most recently the Victoria, Lounge, Terrace and Bar refurbishment.
The Grand has worked closely with Brighton Council and other conservation groups to ensure the heritage of the building is respected and restored to its former glory.
Andrew Mosley, general manager at The Grand, comments: “Since becoming an independent hotel in 2014, our owners have invested a significant amount and this project is a testament to our ongoing commitment to our customers and improving the guest experience at The Grand.
The wider refurbishment programme has seen The Grand roll out an ambitious programme to install air-conditioning across its 201 bedrooms, refurbish its Victoria Terrace, Lounge and Bar, further upgrade its own seafood restaurant, GB1, upgrade Wi-Fi bandwidth capacity to 1GB and invest significantly in back of house facilities.
