Hilton Hotel

Case Study

Hilton Hotel Refurbishment, St Julian’s

When the Hilton Hotel in St Julian’s, Malta, was refurbished in 2016, Panta was tasked with completing all electrical and mechanical works to a very high standard in a tight two-month period.

About the project

Panta was the Hilton Hotel’s contractor of choice for its mechanical and electrical building engineering installations.

In the Hilton Hotel refurbishment project, the scope of work for Panta included the installation of all mechanical and electrical components. This included the ELV and HVAC systems in the new lobby, reception, bars, restaurants, executive lounge and kitchens. The project also included much-needed modifications and upgrades to existing systems in the plant room.

The client required all works to be carried out in a very short, two-month timeframe. As a result, the project was meticulously planned to ensure all materials, equipment and human resources were available on time and in line with the project’s programme of works.

I’ve worked with Panta since about 1999, and I’ve enjoyed seeing the company evolve over the years. Panta offers an integrated and consolidated approach to their projects that enables great communication regarding project status with their clients. At the Hilton, Panta was involved in our 2016 refurbishment of the hotel’s public areas – reception, restaurants, lounge and so on. All the mechanical and electrical systems were modernised, including plumbing, air conditioning, extra low voltage systems and more. There was a substantial amount of work that needed to be completed in just a couple of months. I was very pleased because Panta met the challenge head-on. They delivered high-quality results within the agreed schedule.
