Tenbrink HotelPlan’s very first assignment for niu Hotels was quite a feat. It involved transforming the previous “Karstadt Sports” department store into the niu Welly Kiel hotel within a time-frame of just 14 months. Our renovation specialists were happy to take on this time-consuming and demanding project. We took care of all the dry construction and tiling work plus the floors, walls and doors in all of the 113 bedrooms and many private and public areas. 

Numerous new and complex challenges arose during the course of the project, particularly due to the high technical demands in the areas of historic building preservation, sound insulation, fire protection and structural analysis. But thanks to the great expertise of our renovation specialists, we were able to come up with the necessary special solutions in a safe and economically efficient way. 

The niu Welly Kiel hotel was completed in November 2018. The result: a maritime-style hotel in a seafaring ambiance with many Nordic elements and materials.
