Randolph Hotel / Oxford

The Macdonald Randolph Hotel, is the leading 5 star Hotel in Oxford.

The heritage building is located in the centre of Oxford on Beaumont St occupying a corner site with the Ashmolean Museum opposite the main entrance, with the other side fronting onto St Giles and colleges and the Playhouse Theatre a few doors up.

SPV were appointed to carry out the fire refurbishment works in April 2014 following a devastating fire which the hotel suffered which originated in the Kitchen.

SPV were initially appointed to carry out the emergency works to get the Hotel back up and running and following these works we were then appointed the external and internal fire refurbishment contract.

Works involved the rebuilding of the Tower of the Hotel all as per Heritage requirements, flat roofing works, slate roofing works and remedial works to the windows

SPV were also appointed to create the new Acanthus Dining Experience at the Hotel which offers the people of Oxford a exciting new dining experience as well as The Cartoon Bar- the most stylish new bar in Oxford City Centre.  

SPV forged excellent relationships with the Hotel throughout the contract which ensured that as little disruption was caused to the Hotel as possible throughout the works as it day remain in operation following the re opening.

We also forged excellent relationships with the neighbouring properties informing them of the works and also leaflet dropping when we arranged any road closures and when we sued the tower crane for lifting.

During our time on site, we hosted visits by the Fire brigade who put out the devastating fire, The Lord Mayor, Oxford radio and the local MP
