Renovation of 23 bedrooms in the Royal Automobile Club, Pall Mall

The history of the Royal Automobile Club dates back to the end of the 19th century when it was founded as the Automobile Club of Great Britain. We were delighted to renovate 23 beautifully designed bedrooms and corridors for this magnificent client.

The Royal Automobile Club is a private, recommendation only social and sports club with two clubhouses: Woodcote Park, in the Surrey countryside, and Pall Mall, in the heart of London.

Rac Club Pall Mall - Corridor

The prestigious Pall Mall includes facilities and amenities such as lounges and bars, a choice of restaurants, and even Turkish baths and squash courts. Not to mention its 108 bedrooms, which provide club members with the best experience possible.


One of our main duties was to strip out, redecorate and install £5,000 per roll wallcoverings, which required special skills and an eye for detail.

Other refurbishment works included carpet changing, furniture installation and electrical works.


Minimum disruption was mandatory due to the hotel remaining in full working order on other floors. We remained in line with all requirements and provided the clients with high-end solutions, whilst keeping noise at the lowest possible levels.

Renovations in the areas of central London are some of our favourites to be involved with. We feel inspired passing by neighbourhoods around the Royal Automobile Club, where there are sights such as Buckingham Palace and the National Gallery.


Exceptional locations attract marvelous stories and people. In this very district, you can also find a producer of handmade bowler hats from the 17th century!

A word from our Clients:

Their approach to the works at all levels has been both helpful and highly professional by their craftsmen, tradesmen and management working with our own team to provide a finish to the highest of standards, very often within extremely tight constraints on both the programme and finances.

GBG Building Services Ltd has been employed by us to carry out general contracting and specialist subcontractor services on a number of projects, over the past four years. These have included The Paddington London Hilton, The Millennium Mayfair Hotel Grosvenor Square, and the Royal Automobile Club Piccadilly, which have ranged in value from £50k – £1.4m.

I believe the company has grown in stature over the years we have been working together and is quickly becoming a name within the industry that companies like ourselves can respect and rely on to carry out larger and even more prestigious projects in the future.
