Rosh Rayhaan by Rotana

Hotel conversion
Making good use of an already-completed office block structure, the Rotana Hotel organisation prepared the new 336-room, five star Rosh Rayhaan for the first quarter of 2016.

WME was contracted by IPM International for the building services engineering and for minor structural alterations to an existing building in the heart of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, not far from the airport, to create a new hotel for business use. A business centre, fitness facilities and four dining outlets are included.

The adaptation from office use to hotel use raised a number of issues. The challenges included deficiencies in head height allowances to public areas and kitchens, and highly complex co-ordination.

Our experienced consultants led the whole design team, ensuring co-ordination with the existing structure — maximising its assets and avoiding installation clashes.
