Bermondsey Square Hotel
Tower Bridge Road, Southwark, London SE1 3UN
We were approached by Jacuzzi to meet with the Team at Bermondsey Square Hotel with a view to replacing the existing Hot Tub with a Jacuzzi. The Jacuzzi was to be situated on the 8th Floor Penthouse room called “Lucy In The Sky”. As this is in Central London the logistics behind the delivery were far different from any normal domestic delivery that we do as we needed to factor in a crane that could lift to the 8th Floor, the area we had to work in once the Jacuzzi was in situ, congestion charges and also maintaining a safe working environment at all times. This was a great challenge for all our Team from our Admin side in the Showroom who helped to organise the Crane, ensure we had all the right information and help we needed prior to and after the delivery, to our Installation & Service Team that were there on the day. The Jacuzzi needed to go onto a Plinth in order for the customers to be able to get the best views across the London Skyline, so we had a Plinth made in line that was in keeping with the new astro turf that was being used by the Hotel to complete the effect. The Plinth was constructed by SPH Carpentry. The delivery took place on the 4th of January and despite the wind with the help of Baldwins Crane Hire we were able to firstly lift the Plinth up followed shortly afterwards by the Jacuzzi. Once we got this into the required position it was filled and installed with a Cover, Cover lifter and steps, only thing missing were the Customers! This was certainly a challenging install and at a height we had never gone to before, but as the sun started to set and the Jacuzzi lights were on the views across London including the London Eye were amazing a great way to enjoy the New Years’ Eve Fireworks in London 2018! It just proves with Jacuzzi anything is possible!
