A 212 guestroom four star hotel for Radisson Blu with a swimming pool and gym as well as leisure, conference and banqueting facilities.

The hotel is located on the banks of the River Wear in the heart of historic Durham city. All of the accommodation is air conditioned, with a substantial amount of the building’s energy consumption being provided by combined heat and power plant.

As well as setting up the structured cabling, telephone, television, wired and wireless internet, background music and meeting room AV packages, we assisted Radisson in setting up a pre-opening office to take reservations and to migrate the back office systems into the new hotel office.

This hotel houses 1,100 square metres of city-centre event space. These 11 meeting rooms include a cluster of eight rooms. Featuring river views framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, the rooms have high-speed, wireless Internet access, LCD projector and screen and an intelligent lighting system.
