Hotel Outdoor Structure Installation in Poole

The Brief:

The Sandbanks Hotel in Dorset, part of the prestigious FJB Group, contacted Broadview to install new awnings and a bespoke outdoor structure on their terrace area.

We had previously completed numerous successful projects for The Sandbanks Hotel, including the installation of new internal and external shading solutions, so the client was already aware of our high-quality products and services.

The Sandbanks Hotel, with its iconic Seaview Restaurant and Sandbanks Beach Club boasting breathtaking views of the Sandbanks Peninsula, were looking to make their outdoor space a hub for day and night dining and entertainment. The challenge at hand was to create a spacious outdoor structure that would cater to large gatherings, perfect for hosting parties, dining events, engagements, and weddings.

The Broadview Solution:

This installation marked our 200th outdoor shading project, and we made sure that every step of the project matched our team’s consistent attention to detail and dedication to delivering exceptional results.

After the initial consultation, we recommended the client went with the B200 XL Brustor outdoor structure. It would be able to cover all the space they needed while providing a flexible hosting area capable of withstanding even the toughest weather conditions. Our designers quickly began designing the custom outdoor structure, which measured 12 metre by 5 metres and would adjoin the hotel’s Ocean Palace restaurant. The structure was coloured white to best match the exterior of the hotel.

The B200 XL structure included an electronic louvred roof that can be controlled remotely for quick and easy usability. The louvres could be rotated anywhere between fully open to fully horizontal, creating a closed-roof setting. Sliding glass panels were also added to the modern veranda, which transformed the space covered by the patio into a protected room without needing to sacrifice any of the stunning sea views.

The new awnings we installed for the Seaview Restaurant and Sandbanks Beach Club restaurants had integral lighting and heating, which helped create a more usable space for the hotel day and night, and in all weathers.

All in all, the new shading solutions provided all the customisable options needed for a flexible, visually impressive hosting space.

The Result:

Our client was thrilled with the new B200 XL outdoor structure the Broadview team specifically designed for The Sandbanks Hotel. The system can be used all year round for entertainment and dining purposes, and easily showcases the impressive Sandbanks Peninsula. A perfect space for hosting celebrations for hotel guests, the bespoke structure has proven a great investment for FJB Hotels Group, as the hotel's now gaining recognition amongst couples as a desirable location to host impressive engagement parties. 



“Here at FJB Hotels, we have always put a lot of effort into improving our hotel’s offerings in terms of structural additions and continuous refurbishments in all areas to improve the customer experience. In the last couple of years, we have made great new additions to the popular Sandbanks terrace by adding a fully equipped bar as well as kitchen unit. In order to make our terrace less susceptible to the unpredictable British weather, we wanted to have a covered outdoor space, which would suit our complex needs and be flexible enough to accommodate everything from wedding functions to restaurant and bar service."

"Broadview Shading Solutions were able to construct a large space, which we can open up entirely for the summer months and close during the winter, enabling us to attract customers all year round. The planning and construction phase of the project went smoothly and resulted in a structure which matches the other high-quality additions to the terrace and will boost our offerings to customers.” John Butterworth, owner of the FJB Hotels Group.
