With Spring, supposedly on its way (!) we thought it would be a great idea to launch a monthly newsletter where we can showcase recent refurbishment projects and team news.
This year, we’ve seen an increase in workload, certainly across the hotel and leisure sectors and we have some exciting news in the pipeline which we hope to share with you next month. With a growing workload comes a growing team, and below you can see a few new team members welcomed into the fold.
Let’s get to it…
Since January 2018 we have commenced on various hotel and leisure refurbishment projects with clients, new and existing:
Warner Leisure Hotel
- Sinah Warren – hotel refurbishment and late lounge refit, Hayling Island, Portsmouth (view case study)
- Lakeside – hotel bedroom refurbishment, Hayling Island, Portsmouth
- Bembridge – bedroom follow-on works, Isle of Wight
Holiday Inn Express
We have commenced onsite at Royal Docks, Victoria and Southwark to carry out various bedroom and entrance lobby refurbishments.
IQ Student Living
Sample rooms have been completed ahead of confirmed summer refit projects for IQ Student Living in Hoxton, Lincoln and Edinburgh. We’re looking at circa 500 student rooms to refurb. More to follow on that in a future newsletter.
New London Marketing Suite completed for Tipi; a new rental experience which aims to be ‘the best way to live in London’. They are an exciting new client, owned by Quintain (the team behind Wembley Park, one of London’s most exciting new neighbourhood) and we look forward to delivering their ‘official’ Marketing Suite very soon.
Earlier this year we completed a trio of refits in East Anglia; Ipswich (drive-thru), Peterborough
and Cambridge. The leisure refit team have also completed onsite at Seacroft Retail Park in Leeds and we’re back in Cambridge in May installing a brand new Costa Coffee for commuters at Cambridge North train station.
We were at the Grand Opening of the Liverpool John Lennon Airport Travelodge which was a great refit project to be apart of. Pictured is Mayor Malcom Kennedy doing the obligatory ribbon cutting!
We have commenced onsite at Gatwick, Waterloo, Richmond and Milton Keynes to refit
various bedroom schemes and bar cafes.
Recent Case Study Sinah Warren Hotel
We recently completed a 4 week 60 room refurbishment project for Warner Leisure Hotels along with the impressive cabaret late-lounge transformation which we’re extremely proud of!
The 530 cover Cabaret Lounge and show bar saw TROY group contractors spend approximately 3,800 hours on site and cost circa £1000,000. Read the cabaret case study here
We’re delighted to introduce 3 new team members who joined us in the last few months:
Rachel Hempel, joins the Finance Team

Rob also joined us in the New Year to work with our existing hotel clients. He’s been working within commercial and project management as a contractor, consultant and client for the past 14 years.
“I was aware of all the good work and accolades TROY were receiving, so once a job opportunity arose – I applied without hesitation. I have enjoyed my time so far and the team have been really welcoming!”
