‘Chambers’ private members club at The Taj and TH@51, bar and restaurant with open kitchen including grill and chef’s table.

The project at the Taj St James’ Court Hotel commenced at the end of 2019 but, due to a long hiatus caused by the impact of Covid on the Hotel’s operations, did not complete until August 2021.

Working with Box Associates and Conran and Partners, WFC were the principal contractor for the entire project and completed the enabling, drainage and fit-out works to ‘Chambers’ and the new basement kitchen. WFC also completed refurbishment works to the courtyard.

The services distribution was particularly challenging as the plant needed to be situated on the roof of the hotel, some seven storeys up, and the available head-height, particularly in the basement, was very limited. In addition, the structure of the building, evolved over many years and phases, meant that navigating the many beams and columns entailed significant builders works.
