West Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton - 65 Sussex Street Development
CHW Consulting recently completed the ICT consulting works on the new “West Hotel”, part of Hilton’s upscale Curio Collection. Owned by the Singapore-based M&L Hospitality, West Hotel is the first hotel added to the Curio Collection in Sydney through a management agreement with M&L.
Hilton will manage the 182-room hotel designed by Fitzpatrick and Partners with interiors by Woods Bagot and courtyard by Sturt Noble Associates. Overall the construction of 65 Sussex Street has seen tens of thousands of work hours on the site to create a modern and innovative hotel space. The geometric façade has been designed to make the building immediately recognisable, while also resolving issues of heat load, privacy, and acoustics
During our consultancy, we leveraged our understanding of the technology requirements for luxury hotel spaces to create an ICT system which contributes to a holistic guest experience. We were responsible for the detailed design of the hotel’s LAN, Wireless LAN, New PABX System, and guest’s in-room technology.
Key considerations for the successful completion of the hotel’s ICT system included:
- Seamless integration between building technologies and systems
- Support for modern hotel guests’ needs such as streaming and high-speed wireless access
- Considerations for long-term operations (support, maintenance, technology lifecycles)
- Exceptional end user experience
The West Hotel is currently operational, and it was great to be part of the project. We’re looking forward to working with M&L, Multiplex, Fitzpatrick and Partners, and Woods Bagot on future projects.
