Having previously worked on many joint projects, our renovation experts are already familiar with the tristar hotel group’s high design standards. Tenbrink HotelPlan was therefore tristar’s first port of call in February 2018 for the new construction of its Holiday Inn Hamburg –HafenCity. 

We were involved in the project from the very first shell construction meeting and, in addition to supplying and assembling the furniture, we also took care of the decoration and lighting in the 268 bedrooms and the public areas. The bedrooms spanned a total area of 4,824 square meters, whereas the public areas (comprising the lobby, restaurant, bar, breakfast room, fitness room, conference foyer and three conference rooms) covered around 600 square meters.

For all of its projects, tristar places particular emphasis on top-quality materials and workmanship as well as speedy implementation. The client also values a long-standing cooperative partnership on equal terms.

A particular challenge for Tenbrink HotelPlan when working on this project was the fact that we had to constantly adapt our schedule and we were unable to start as planned due to numerous delays in completing the shell construction. In addition to the unforeseen downtimes, the contracted companies ended up overlapping on site, resulting in greater logistics requirements. Thanks to the flexibility and experience of our specialists, the hotel project was finally completed in December 2018.

The hotel’s specific design orientation is characterised by the many maritime elements that Tenbrink HotelPlan created especially for the Holiday Inn HafenCity, such as the glass cut-outs in the bedroom walls that bring to mind a ship’s bow. Themed pictures featuring subjects such as the privateer Störtebeker, mermaids and views of Hamburg also enhance the hotel’s maritime feel.
