Ground has been broken on the multi-million pound upgrade of Trump Turnberry.
International construction services firm ISG, which has been awarded two contracts as part of the overhaul, will refurbish, remodel and upgrade the resort hotel’s public spaces and 103 bedrooms and construct a new 500-capacity grand ballroom.
ISG will also be responsible for a number of external enhancements, including the replacement of all windows, repairs to the roof and dormers as well as renewing the rendering on all external walls of the 109 year old building.
The refurbishment work being carried out by ISG is part of the £200 million renovation of the golf resort which was enacted by The Trump Organization following the firm’s purchase of the Ayrshire venue last year.
Fife-based project management company Hardies has also been brought in by Trump Turnberry for the upgrade, which has a scheduled completion date of June 2016.
Andy McLinden, ISG’s regional managing director for Scotland, said that adding Trump Turnberry to the firm’s portfolio of Scottish hospitality projects “represents an important win for the business and underlines our specialist expertise delivering outstanding facilities to exacting standards”.
Eric Trump, executive vice president of development and acquisition for The Trump Organization, said “Trump Turnberry will be the most luxurious hotel anywhere in the UK and beyond”.
“Having already completed vast renovations to the magnificent golf clubhouse and select public areas, we are thrilled to move into the second phase of our major renovation,” said Trump.
