Novotel Sydney Darling Square – Hotel Refurbishment
Reward Group was engaged to completely refurbish the guest rooms, corridors, conference/meeting rooms and public areas of the Novotel Sydney Darling Square, including the lobby, reception, restaurant and bar. Reward Group implemented innovative solutions to facilitate the fresh, modern and creative design.
The team at Reward Group developed visually stunning solutions to achieve the refurbishment design objective in a cost-effective and engineered viable manner. For example, to create the look of the stunning timber posts (of which timber itself would have been too heavy to use), Reward Group, working closely with the designers, came up with the creative solution to have hollow aluminium tube sections constructed, wrapped in real timber veneer with solid timber installed at both ends.
The use of limed oak and white washed timbers, gold detailing and stack stone feature wall, along with a variety of natural materials and textures, and low level lighting, throughout the hotel’s lobby and bar/restaurant areas reflects modern trends and appeals to a wide market.
Reward Group executed a successful 10 month construction program aimed at minimising disruption to guest and hotel operations. Consistent and detailed communication between all parties and adherence to a strict schedule ensured the project went smoothly and was completed on time and on budget. Reward Group’s Christopher Donohue said of the project “We are delighted to have been involved in such a stunning transformation of such a great Sydney hotel.”
