Refurbishing Two CBD Flagship Venues

Taylor Square located off Oxford Street, Darlinghurst near Sydney CBD is made up of two flagship venues, Kinselas and Courthouse Hotel.

Both venues were acquired in Feb 2010 and Redcape Hotel Group were keen to enhance the customer experience of the venues with an immediate injection of CAPEX design and funding, whilst developing a precinct masterplan to benefit from Sydney’s restaurant night time economy.

Empire were engaged as Project Manager and Superintendent throughout planning, design, construction and handover phases.

The Challenges

Planning and undertaking construction in a live environment and bustling CBD location posed challenges for the contractors. Refurbishment works were also carried out to the facades therefore pedestrian safety was paramount.

The Solutions

Implementing our thorough quality management and health and safety management programs assisted to deliver the project safely and within the various logistical restrictions.

The Outcomes

A contemporary refresh of the public bar, external dining FF&E including carpets and furniture. A refresh to both venues gaming amenities. Refurbishment of the judgement bar in Courthouse. Enhancements to the Kinselas Standard Bowl venue and cosmetic enhancements to the facades.
