FOUR SEASONS GRESHAM PALACE
The landmark Four Seasons Gresham Palace located in Budapest, Hungary started out as an office and apartment building commissioned by the Gresham Life Assurance Company in 1904. The building was later bought by Gresco Investment Limited in 1998 and in 1999 the Four Seasons Resort brand was brought on to oversee the renovation and manage the property. The property has changed hands a few times but still remains a branded Four Season Hotel. The hotel boasts 179 luxurious guest rooms, including 17 suites that span 9 floors.
The HIDI Group provided mechanical and plumbing design for this opulent 260,000 ft² hotel which was gutted and rebuilt with additional floors at the top. Heightened levels of coordination and integration were in place to successfully collaborate with local architects and engineers. The HIDI team delivered designs for a refrigeration plant, hot water plant, air handing system, fire protection, domestic hot water system, a separate domestic hot water system for laundry, kitchens and washrooms and water softening system as per the required scope.
Working with local architects/engineers proved to be a challenge due to their different approach to the work and cultural norms, we overcame this through coordination and guidance towards the best solutions for the best results.
