Refurbishment to begin for Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates

Majid Al Futtaim Properties has awarded ISG the AED130m Kempinski Hotel refurbishment located at Dubai’s Mall of the Emirates.

ISG will be working closely with the hotel operator as well as the lead consultant and architect Auckett Swanke.

The work will begin in May 2014 and is planned to span over a 20 month period.

Heading the ISG project team is Bassem Salah, general manager for hotels and hospitality, who said: “We have a team mobilised on site and already working closely with Majid Al Futtaim and Aukett Swanke to ensure that this project gets off to a great start.

“The preparation for a project of this scale is vital to seamless implementation and minimises the risks of working within a live environment which is particularly important as the hotel will remain open to the public throughout the refurbishment period.”

The refurbishment will include the complete upgrade of all 393 guest rooms, suites and ski chalets, as well as the F&B outlets, meeting rooms, gym and spa.
