The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre (QEIICC) in Westminster, often used by inquiry committees, has announced a major refurbishment of the event venue.

Stating that the work will be extensive, the centre’s management maintains that it is about re-establishing the site’s ‘wow factor’. As well as bringing state-of-the-art improvements and upgrades to the inside of the building, the management hopes that external and environmental improvements will also be important to the works.

Mark Taylor, who is in charge of the site, said:

“The QEIICC was constructed to an exceedingly high standard – as a beacon of British excellence, design, ingenuity and craftsmanship – a jewel of the Government of the day. All jewels need constant polishing and the QEIICC is no exception. We have worked with specialists to create a Master Plan – focusing on the customer experience and on improving the delegate journey through the Centre.”

Mr Taylor went on to say that so far the feedback from clients has been positive.

As well as a programme of  office fit out  office fit out work, upgrades will include major changes to the Sanctuary Foyer. With the new foyer set to be the wow element of the project, everything from the flooring to the ceilings will be refurbished.

Other upgrades taking place will see better connections between floors and conference suites, a replacement of all carpeted suites and  office flooring  office flooring, and a changing of all  office furniture  office furniture. A new executive café-cum-lounge will also be created.

The refurbished QEIICC is due to reopen in the autumn.
