Mabanee Company, a leading Kuwaiti developer and partner in innovative real estate projects, has appointed Havelock AHI for the interior fit-out of the Hilton Garden Inn.

The award of the 400-key property is adding yet another notable credential to the growing hospitality projects list of the regional interior contractor and manufacturer.

Syed Kashif Akhtar, group managing director at Havelock AHI Interiors, says: “Hotel and resort projects allow us to showcase our capability to manage the complexity of coordinating different disciplines and trades, while catering to the clients’ needs with foresight and technical knowledge to create outstanding interiors and experiences for the end customer.”

Havelock AHI’s scope of work at the Hilton Garden Inn Kuwait covers the fit-out of all guest rooms, corridors and public areas, including the lobby and reception; an all-day dining concept with buffet counters and kitchen display islands, a juice bar and a pantry pavilion; the business centre and a garden lounge. The company has been assigned responsibility for the joinery and metal works as well as all finishes and furnishings such as gypsum, tiling, wall covering, carpets and painting.

The Hilton Garden Inn Kuwait is part of the latest Phase Four expansion of The Avenues, Kuwait with its main entrance located in ‘The Forum’ and bordering the new ‘Electra’ district.

The 10-storey building’s structure was designed by Gensler Associates, whichhas also been the architects behind the adjacent mall. The modern interior design, conceived by Godwin Austen Johnson (GAJ), caters to the upscale corporate business market and weekend leisure demand alike and is governed by brand guidelines that set out the design parameters for the building’s look and feel.

The work is scheduled to run over 10 months and will involve 150 to 200 workers. The project shall be completed by mid-2019, managed by the experienced fit-out contracting team of Havelock AHI in Kuwait and supported by the setting-out and manufacturing departments in its 300,000-sq-ft factory in Askar, Bahrain.
