The Intourist Hotel is part of Marriott International’s Autograph collection and overlooks the waterfront boulevard known as National Park, edging the Caspian Sea and in close proximity to the historic old city. The hotel comprises of 150 guest rooms and suites with full amenities, approximate GIA of 12,000m², meeting facilities, restaurants, and connection to on-grade car park to the perimeter of the hotel.
Black & White undertook full MEP and specialist design services for AVIT, acoustics, fire and life safety, and water features. Following the contract award, Black & White deployed a full team of engineers to oversee the MEP construction activities and testing and commissioning to ensure smooth and defect-free handover to the hotel operator. The hotel was granted unconditional occupational status by the operator’s international verification team – an unprecedented achievement for the region and rarely achieved internationally.
The hotel was completed from concept to handover in 22 months (including 14 months for construction) and was modelled on the previous landmark Intourist Hotel.
