The Fish Hotel

Posted by Chris Hinton at 10:03 on 14 March 2018

Bedded into the heart of the Cotswolds, The Fish Hotel is a collection of cosy and quirky cottages, huts and hotel houses. Across the 400-acre private estate, this hotel pulls what you know the outdoors and of a luxury hotel experience and mashes the two together. Back to nature with a touch of luxury.


Since winning the contract, project managed by Dan Halpin, Shine were tasked with providing a full drawing package which included both mechanical and electrical services and to manage third party contractors throughout the installation. Primarily for this project, Shine worked with Fosters Coldstores to provide refrigeration solutions and MKN to provide cooking equipment and the central island cooking suite.


The project only accounted for an 11 day installation period, which was successfully achieved by Shine’s engineers, and successfully coordinated with both Foster Coldstores and MKN to achieve this goal. Despite the tight installation period, all parties worked tirelessly to stay within the allocated time period, resulting in a happy client and consultant.


Dan Halpin, Shine project manager, reflected on the positives of the project stating, “The attitude by everyone involved on the project was a huge plus for us. Working with Intoto Design was a great experience and everyone involved all worked hard to achieve the handover to the client in a timely manner.”


“However, all projects do come with their challenges, and this one was no different. The central island gave us a little bit of difficulty in getting the suite actually into the building and the outdoor cold store from Foster was something different for the project. With the correct pre-planning involving everyone, all challenges, timescales and goals were overcome.”


Simon Gillott, Design Director at Intoto Design, said “Getting the project over the line was a challenge with the time constraints but everyone pulled together to get it done. This resulted in a great finished product where it was everything the client had asked for and more. It was a great project to work on and the clients were particularly great to work with.”


This project has resulted in an ultimate fine dining experience that customers can enjoy for years to come. Dan Halpin concluded, “This is a shining example (excuse the pun!) of what can be achieved with exemplary teamwork, planning and, above all, communication. This facility should provide a fantastic new workspace for all and produce dining at the highest level.”
