Scotland’s booming Tourism Sector Invests in Mozolowski & Murray
Mozolowski and Murray is also benefiting from those seeking new business opportunities within the tourism sector, particularly landowners in rural parts of Scotland, looking to diversify their agricultural businesses, to capitalise on Scotland’s tourism potential.
Virginia Murray continues:
“Those wishing to develop land for the purposes of creating a tourism business, come to us knowing that we have an in-house team of professionals who take care of the entire planning and build application process, often a barrier to potential first-time developers.
“The fact that we are bespoke also attracts commercial clients. With an experienced and innovative team of designers and consultants, our clients will have the opportunity to discuss, in full, their plans and ideas at an initial consultation and work closely with our design team in creating the perfect package.”
Mozolowski and Murray, headed by Craig Hunter and Virginia Murray, worked through the winter months to complete a stunning orangery extension at the four-star Keavil House Hotel near Dunfermline, in Fife. The 15th Century traditional country house recently opened its doors to a new bespoke 95 square-meter restaurant, bar and terrace, with seating capacity in the restaurant of up to 60 diners.
Virginia goes onto explain:
“This once very private retreat has been lovingly converted and extended to combine all the comfort and luxury of a modern hotel while retaining the charm of the ancient mansion. It was important to us that we designed an extension that was in keeping with the building’s rich heritage and traditional features. The result is stunning, incorporating a design that’s built to last a lifetime.”
Other commercial projects Mozolowski & Murray has completed and where owners have reported a quick return on their investment include, The Lodge on Loch Goil, Carlowrie Castle, Yann’s of Crieff, The Isle of Eriska Hilltop Reserves and the Fife Arms in Turriff. Three of the above mentioned all commissioned Mozolowski & Murray to deliver further expansion based on the success of the initial projects. The company is currently in talks with other leading Scottish brands and is about to complete the Royal Hotel in Elgin.
Virginia Murray concludes:
“We are already very proud of our commercial record and have an exciting order book which will see some creative and stunning additions to business all over Scotland. We will continue showcasing our growing commercial portfolio, so revisit our website for an ongoing insight into the commercial business installations we deliver, nationwide.
Commenting on the experience, Keavil House Hotel’s Managing Director, Alistair Bruce said:
“What impressed me most is that Mozolowski and Murray understood that the build process was just as important as the end result. We worked to a process to ensure construction didn’t impact on the rest of the hotel’s operation, whether that be screening to allow wedding to take place in the gardens or scheduling noisy construction so it didn’t clash with corporate or private events. This, for me, demonstrated that Mozolowski and Murray understood business, not just construction.”
