Wyboston Lakes Resort awards multi-million pound construction contract to Revo.
Wyboston Lakes Resort, the UK’s largest privately owned single site conference and leisure venue, has awarded the multi-million pound construction contract to carry out the comprehensive upgrade of its meeting and events spaces to Revo Leisure Services.
Work is already underway and is scheduled for completion in March 2019.
Synergy Architects Ltd were commissioned to assess ways the existing building, which opened in 1998, could be adapted sensibly to accommodate the latest trends in conferences in the 21st century and meet the needs of the latest and future generations of conference delegates. Their plans encompass a comprehensive interior refit to modernise and upgrade the facilities sensitively and in keeping with the existing building.
The construction work will double the size of the main function space of the Woodlands Event Centre to accommodate up to 300 people and include internal reorganisation of the meetings and break out areas, providing a fresh modern look with current finishes and high spec tech. Matching ceiling heights, installing movable walls to expand training rooms and pillar-less views are some of the unique architectural features to be implemented. A Paddy & Scott’s Coffee Shop will also be constructed within the revised footprint.
Steve Jones, Operations Director at Wyboston Lakes Resort, says: “Revo have worked on similar projects for other operators of dedicated conference and events spaces, and appreciate the quality and levels of attention to detail that are essential to us.
“They also understand how to carry out such extensive works whilst allowing us to trade safely and to provide high levels of guest satisfaction. Their previous experience of working with Synergy, our architect and interior designer, also played a part, as did the positive and proactive approach we noted during the tendering process.
Philip Basford, Managing Director at Revo, comments “This is an exciting project that enables us to apply our experience and expertise in the hospitality and leisure sector.
