At Cairncross Martin, our role is to supply and deliver FF&E – Furniture, Fixtures & Equipment – to interior designer and hotel operator standards and within budget.
Imagine a hotel turned upside down, all the items that fall to the ground are what we supply and deliver. From the knives and forks to the pots and pans to the beds and furniture. And if something sways a bit from its fixture – such as the grand chandeliers in the lobby or the artwork on the wall or the drapery in the guest rooms – we do that too!
Cairncross Martin was appointed by the developer Lend Lease – for and on behalf of the investor the Schwartz Family Company – to provide FF&E and OS&E procurement services to the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour Hotel project. The hotel comprises 590 guestrooms and suites, an indulgent array of Food & Beverage facilities; state of the art Conferencing facilities and a Fitness Centre.
“Cairncross Martin have impressed us with their advanced preparation which resulted in a major procurement program going to plan and meeting all parties’ expectations. The utilisation of Cairncross Martin recommended China based manufacturers in particular to joinery and loose furniture packages has resulted in a significant saving against approved budgets. Also I was impressed by their ability to source quality product – both FF&E and OS&E – at very competitive rates out of their Asian supplier base. They have shown a commitment throughout to working with my team in particular in the development of tabletops and provision of alternate OS&E brands in an endeavour to secure a best value for money result for and on behalf of my company”.Dr. Jerry Schwartz, Schwartz Family Company.
