HILTON ABERDEEN TECA – THE MANUFACTURE AND INSTALLATION OF HOTEL BARS, INTERIORS AND BESPOKE FURNITURE
Allstar Joinery Ltd was appointed as a main commercial joinery subcontractor, including the manufacture of bespoke hotel furniture, interiors, hotel seating, bar manufacturing and installations on this project by principal contractor Robertson Construction.
Project background and description
The purpose of the project was to assist in the completion of the Hilton Aberdeen TECA hotel project.
Allstar Joinery manufactured, supplied and installed major portions of the bespoke manufactured furniture, seating, wall cladding, all bars and back bars from our sustainable production facility in Cumbernauld, Glasgow using our own dedicated inhouse team.
The Hilton Aberdeen project formed part of a much larger TECA complex which
included the Aloft Hotel and The Event Complex Aberdeen.
The programme had a very intensive timescale with minimal lead in time:
- Vast amount of works to be completed in a very short timescale.
- The attention to detail required to meet the exacting standards of the architectural design and the build.
- Regular site meetings took place in which the project scope, deadlines and site health and safety were discussed as main topics with main contractor.
- Produced manufacturing drawings.
- New hotel joinery works.
- Hotel bespoke furniture manufacture.
- Hotel interiors.
- Hotel fitted furniture manufacture.
- Hotel furniture installation.
- Bespoke birch veneer shelving throughout.
- Hotel bars and back bars manufacture.
- Hotel bars and back bars installation.
The solution formulated and carried out was as follows:
- This was a 12 month programme of works.
- As always it was a fast moving programme.
- Given the distance between Glasgow and Aberdeen we put a project plan in place to ensure project deliveries in line with the main contractor’s programme.
- Integrated the Allstar Joinery team with the use of local labour sub-contractors.
Vast amount of works to be completed in a very short timescale:
- Produced manufacturing drawings using the design concept drawings as a base.
- We ensured the project was well resourced to meet project needs and budgetary limitations.

- With the Allstar Joinery in-house sustainable production facility in Cumbernauld, Glasgow, we ensured timeous delivery of all products to the site in Aberdeen. As well as short term requests when amendments were needed to existing scope of works.
