Hilton at Ageas Bowl

Located at the home of Hampshire County Cricket, the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl features 171 bedrooms, a luxury spa and one of the country’s largest conference suites. Following a competitive tender process, Ena Shaw Contract manufactured and installed curtains in all bedrooms, public areas, the spa, restaurant and bar areas, as well as the main reception of this stunning new hotel.

Ensuring design cohesion across the whole hotel, from the colour scheme in the bedrooms to the overall feel in the main reception and restaurants, Ena Shaw Contract worked closely with the developer, Powells Group, and the architect, Falconer Chester Hall, to ensure that timings were co-ordinated efficiently. Using fabrics in neutral colours, the work was completed in just 10 weeks during the spring of 2015.

Ena Shaw Contract is very proud to be associated with such a high profile project and with more hotels being developed, we look forward to continuing our partnership with the Hilton Group.

Client feedback

“I highly recommend Ena Shaw Contract for its professionalism whilst manufacturing and fitting the curtains and soft furnishings for the bedrooms and public areas at the recently built Hilton at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. I have been most impressed by the way that the team was committed to achieving the demanding deadlines.”

Hampton by Hilton Newcastle

Hampton by Hilton Newcastle

Following the successful completion of projects at the Hampton by Hilton in Sheffield and the Hilton Doubletree in Chester, Ena Shaw Contract was once again selected to provide the curtains and tracks for all 160 bedrooms at the new Hampton by Hilton hotel in the heart of Newcastle city centre.  

This was a major redevelopment of an existing office block, opposite Newcastle Central Station, into a conveniently located three star hotel. Given the hotel’s location, the soft furnishings brief was very specific, with all curtains having to achieve complete blackout in each of the rooms without compromising the bright, spacious look and feel of the interior. This was achieved by fitting both voiles and blackout curtains in soft neutral hues to all bedroom windows.

The Ena Shaw Contract team had to maintain a close relationship with the project managers as the soft furnishings were fitted in 4 phases, one floor at a time. The project was completed on time ready for the opening in early 2015.

A further project with the Hilton Hotel group is currently underway, with Ena Shaw also being awarded the soft furnishings contract for the new Hilton Doubletree in Liverpool which opens at the end of 2015. 

Client feedback

“Ena Shaw Contract provided an efficient and professional service from start to finish. The finished product excelled in quality and standard, and delivered exactly what was requested.  I would not hesitate in using them again and again.”

Hotel Indigo Newcastle

Hotel Indigo Newcastle

As anyone who has stayed at a Hotel Indigo will know, they are incredibly stylish hotels and often incorporate state of the art techniques and graphics. The one in Newcastle was no exception, as can be seen from the photograph above!

The colouring of the furnishings and curtains all had to co-ordinate with the designer's overall scheme, so Ena Shaw Contract sourced fabrics from a number of different suppliers to achieve the desired effect. Due to angled walls and special features, there were also some product and fitting challenges, but all these were overcome by our experienced project manager to ensure we completed on time.

Ena Shaw Contract is very proud to be associated with the Hotel Indigo Brand and with more under construction, we look forward to continuing our partnership.

Client feedback

“I found Ena Shaw Contract to be a most professional company to work with, from the initial enquiry through to managing the installation. They were always on time, fully equipped and the workforce courteous and willing to get the job done. Due to Brand Standards, this project provided us with some very difficult issues to overcome with curtain design and hanging requirements, but these were all successfully resolved.

The quality of fabrics used is exemplary and the finish has
been highly praised by many at the hotel.

I would not hesitate to use Ena Shaw on further projects in
the future.”

Sopwell House

Sopwell House

Following a longstanding relationship with this luxury hotel in Hertfordshire, Ena Shaw Contract was commissioned to supply and fit all the soft furnishings for 60 bedrooms, the spa and dance studio as part of a major hotel refurbishment project.

Given that the hotel is a 300-year-old Georgian country house with a myriad of room designs and sizes, there were several challenges to overcome, but Ena Shaw Contract worked closely with Sparcstudio, the designers and architects, to create a modern country house style. Wave headed curtains and sumptuous roman blinds in flame retardant textured dim-out and silk-effect blackout fabrics created a luxurious, yet practical soft furnishings solution. Bespoke four poster beds were dressed with drapes and valances for the ultimate luxury.

Ena Shaw was also involved in the transformation of traditional farmhouse cottages and stables into 16 premium mews apartments, fitting voiles and plantation shutters to evoke a glamorous country living look and feel.

We are delighted to be involved with such a prestigious hotel and look forward to continuing to work on further projects in the future.
