- Client: The Hotel & Extreme Academy
- Project value: £2.7m
- Duration: 20 weeks
- Location: Watergate Bay, Newquay
The Watergate Bay Hotel Swim Club and Living Space is a £2.7m development over two levels. On the lower level is the Swim Club: the largest indoor swimming pool in Cornwall, together with a cardiovascular suite, and spa and treatment rooms. Above is the Living Space: a new brassiere restaurant with external terraces, complete with new wedding venue and conference room.
Following our successful delivery of the hotel’s Village development, We Are Ease were appointed to construction manage and deliver the refurbishment of the Swim Club and Living Space levels during winter 2011-2012.
We delivered a complete refurbishment of both the Swim Club and Living Space ahead of schedule – even making enough savings to enable the hotel to add a further function room within the original budget.
Will Ashworth, Managing Director at The Hotel & Extreme Academy, said:
We Are Ease continually display a unique characteristic in my experiences of the building industry with all my dealings with them, from planning to procurement through construction to completion, where our interests are at the heart of their core values and aims. I could not have wished for a smoother operation managed by Ease through what could have been such a complicated and stressful major redevelopment for the hotel. Their hard work and commitment to providing cost effective solutions through an open, honest, direct dialogue and relationship between ourselves and all parties involved was their greatest strength and one of the reasons this phase of work was delivered so successfully within budget and time.
