Refurbishing the Delta Bristol Marriott Hotel

A Showcase of Modern Refurbishment Techniques and Aesthetic Transformations

The hospitality industry is synonymous with comfort and style, qualities that must evolve continuously to meet guests’ expectations and safety standards. The Delta Bristol Marriott Hotel, a renowned establishment in Bristol, faced significant challenges due to its aging infrastructure. This blog delves into the transformative refurbishment project undertaken by CCWC Services at the Bristol Marriott, focusing on innovative solutions like DOFF steam cleaning, advanced concrete repairs, and meticulous window maintenance to rejuvenate the building’s facade.

The Challenge

The Bristol Marriott was grappling with an aging infrastructure, characterised by worn pre-cast concrete and deteriorating glazing, windows, doors, and louvers. In addition to the visual downgrade, there were pressing health and safety concerns that could not be overlooked—ensuring the well-being of both guests and staff was a priority. Moreover, the hotel needed to maintain operational continuity, a tough balancing act requiring minimal disruption to the daily influx of guests and events.

Our Solution

CCWC Services crafted a multi-pronged approach to tackle the refurbishment effectively:

  1. DOFF Steam Cleaning: This gentle yet powerful cleaning method was chosen to tackle the dirt and grime accumulated over decades on the pre-cast concrete surfaces, revitalising their appearance without damaging the material.
  2. Descaling of All Glazing: The clarity and shine of the hotel’s windows were restored through meticulous descaling, removing years of limescale buildup that had obscured the once-clear views.
  3. Stitch and Pin Concrete Repairs: These targeted repairs addressed the structural issues in the concrete, ensuring that the building would not only look better but also be safer and more durable.
  4. Glazing Replacement: Where necessary, windows were replaced to meet modern safety standards and enhance visual clarity, significantly improving both the interior and exterior aesthetic.
  5. Painting Windows, Doors, and Louvers: A fresh coat of paint protected these elements from further weathering while enhancing the building’s overall curb appeal.
  6. Internal Window Cleaning: The inside of the windows was also given a thorough clean, boosting the indoor visual environment for guests.


The execution phase was meticulously planned:

  • Use of Cradles: Safe external access was ensured through the use of cradles, with all safety checks rigorously up to date.
  • Comprehensive RAMS: Health and safety were paramount, guided by detailed Risk Assessment and Method Statements.
  • Phased Approach: The refurbishment was carried out in phases, allowing the hotel to continue operations without significant interruptions.


The refurbishment led to several tangible benefits:

  • Enhanced Safety and Compliance: Updated to meet modern safety standards, the building’s safety reassurances have been significantly bolstered.
  • Improved Aesthetic and Structural Integrity: The facade’s revitalisation has not only made the hotel more visually appealing but has also strengthened its structural soundness.
  • Positive Guest Feedback: The improvements have not gone unnoticed; guests have expressed greater satisfaction, leading to increased bookings and a stronger market presence.

Wrapping Up

The refurbishment of the Bristol Marriott by CCWC Services stands as a testament to how targeted maintenance and innovative techniques can breathe new life into commercial buildings. This project not only improved the building’s functionality and safety but also enhanced its aesthetic appeal, ensuring the hotel remains a top choice for visitors to Bristol.
