Case Study: Queens Hotel
- The Queens is the most famous landmark hotel and the leading conference and event hotel in Leeds with no less than 16 conference and meeting rooms and 215 bedrooms.
- Looking out over City Square, this four-star hotel near Leeds train station features conference and meeting facilities, instant access to the train station and a wonderful restaurant, all accompanied by classic Art Deco-style bedrooms.
Following delivery of a number of very successful projects at our Slaley Hall hotel, the Q Hotel Group asked CMS to investigate and fix a persistent leak at our Leeds Queens Hotel. The challenge was to identify and repair the leek, without disturbing the guests or having to cancel functions.
Night time project work: Sensitive excavation in hotel service area during quiet hours. Excavating above and below the major leak to isolate the extent of the problem pipework.
Freezing jackets are applied to the pipework above and below the leak and liquid nitrogen is used to plug the pipe with frozen water isolating the leak.
Steel RSJ inserted into brick built service void to create safe access for engineers and to safeguard hotel structure during works
New pipework is installed and proven prior to services to the hotel being restored and reinstatement of the service void and flooring
