The opening of the striking Four Seasons Hotel at Canary Riverside marked the arrival of the first luxury hotel on the Canary Wharf estate in London Docklands.
John Sisk & Son’s fast track design and build contract for the hotel provided 142 rooms/suites, a restaurant, bar, ballroom, meeting rooms, business centre and health/fitness area. The hotel comprises a ten storey reinforced concrete frame with pre-cast architectural concrete cladding crowned by a distinctive curved roof.
The striking design of the hotel's internal facade features 'ice cube' windows and two seven storey high mahogany doors that frame the entrance to its triple height lobby. Extensive use has been made of pre-fabrication of services as well as concrete framed pre-fabricated bathroom pods to accelerate the build programme and ensure consistency of the high quality finish. The unique interior design of the hotel makes extensive use of rich, natural materials including American black walnut, natural stone, leather and glass.
Sisk provided a comprehensive service; taking on the additional responsibility for the supply and delivery of all of the fixtures, furnishings and fittings.
Sisk was successful in delivering the project to us within programme and under budget. This was a significant feat considering the scale of the project and tight time frame (66 weeks) in which to deliver a world class project of such high quality... I have enjoyed working with Sisk due to their positive attitude, proactiveness, reliability and professionalism. We were always able to gain access to the resources of Sisk’s top management when required, whilst working in close collaboration with the project team... I believe Sisk to be one of the most competent and dependable construction companies that I have encountered.Paul Tan, Arcapita
