The Canvas

Iconic structures define a city’s skyline and elevate its spirit. Some landmarks are etched in time. The country’s premier luxury hotel chain, Indian Hotels Company Limited, partnered with Sankalp Group to build Taj Skyline – a landmark that truly captured the city’s essence while staying true to its own ethos of responsible luxury. Located in a prime neighborhood, Taj Skyline is the first international category 5-star hotel that will transform Ahmedabad’s skyline.

The Masterpiece

The visionary project owners for Taj Skyline, Mr. Kailash Goenka of Sankalp Group, and Ar. Reza Kabul of ARK Reza Kabul Architects, partnered with Arcedior for their FF&E procurement solutions to establish Taj Skyline in the vibrant city of Ahmedabad. It was an obvious choice, wherein their vision matched our capabilities, of effortless sourcing and seamless logistics. The result was a successfully implemented project that delivered and delighted every single stakeholder.

The Palette

Taj Skyline truly encapsulated the vibrancy of its destination. Its modern architecture intertwined seamlessly with the city’s traditions and culture that ran across its interiors. Taj Skyline is a vantage, the first International Category Five Star Hotel in Ahmedabad with the key capacity of 160 Guest Rooms, 4 Suite Rooms, and 6 Jr. Suite Rooms in phase one. The hotel also has well-oriented Banquets, Meeting Rooms, Restaurants, Bistro Cafes, Spa & salon Amenities, and Temperature-controlled Swimming Pools – it has everything you could expect from a world-class facility. With a distinctive sense of place and its legendary hospitality, it sits well in a city known to abide by traditions.

The Arcedior Way

The design theme for the hotel was inspired by the local traditions and cultural diversities of the state of Gujarat. Sankalp group wanted to get the hotel operational with one year. The key challenge, hence, was to source and customiseproducts that conformed to the core design philosophy within one year with installation to make the property operation.

The design team at ARK needed to curate interior schemes for every room in phase 1 of the 18 storey building. Arcedior, with its 14+ years of industry experience, grows on a singular vision- to offer customized, comprehensive, and cutting-edge procurement solutions.

We had an immediate advantage of the knowledge of local nuances. Plus, our solid network of manufacturing resources globally ensured that top brands and top products were easy to source. Working with a short lead-time to specify and source furniture and lighting, we leveraged our vast experience in the industry and mobilized our solid network of manufacturing resources globally for a seamless journey from discovering, sourcing, shipping, and executing interior and furniture products for the project.

“Arcedior has been a repeat supplier. The key to our relationship is the 24*7 action-oriented involvement especially from the founder himself along with his ethical work approach and philosophy, speaks volumes.”

– Reza Kabul

A Single-Window Solution

We performed the dual role of a supplier and a service provider, making us a single-window solution for the project owners. We sourced products for every nook and corner of the hotel – from its lobby to its terrace and everything in between, ensuring the project was implemented within the timeframe and the budget.

Our USP of being able to source exclusive products from the best suppliers at the right prices is what makes usthesingle window for our clients. Our well-oiled process started with sourcing the right products and getting them delivered at the right time and price. Even the smallest of detail was customized – from decorative lights, furnishings, paintings to accessories. Every single element envisioned by the artists, brought to life by Arcedior.

Our Approach

The Arcedior team worked closely with the project owners at the Sankalp Group, giving them immediate access to all product information transparently – timelines, pricing, tracking, and lead times from hundreds of premium brands.  On our team was a diverse set of professionals chosen individually for their unique skill sets. Interior designers to project managers – everyone ensuring the project was implemented within the timeframe and within the budget. The project coordinator liaised with all the brands specified by the client, offering unlimited access to all the products needed through one point of contact.

Our vast experience came into play during the operations. We tapped into key resources – project managers and interior designers from the hospitality procurement domain. The on-site team just had to name their requirement, and we were able to offload the burden from them immediately. This helped them focus on their core competencies while the critical stages of the project went ahead smoothly.

The project was delivered in a record eleven month timeline, starting from procurement, installation’s supervision to execution. A testament to the expertise and experience that we brought to the project enabled a seamless and flawless implementation.
