Outdated to modern - A revamp of Pillo Hotel’s changing room facilities

Pillo Hotel is a modern hotel, located in the town of Ashbourne, who were seeking a renovation of their changing room facilities. This was the first time McSport did a substantial project alongside the hotel.

The contemporary hotel was seeking a complete revamp of their changing room facilities that had been in use in the hotel for many years. An older facility present in a modern hotel would cause an unwanted impact on membership retention and sales within the hotel’s leisure centre.

The McSport team tackled the project head on to find a solution to modernise and supply a quick yet impactful service for the client.

With the help of experienced sports experts and tradesmen, McSport were successful in the remodel and install of up to date fixtures for the changing rooms.

Partnering with Fit Interiors, the team created a complete transformation of everything from lockers, to benches and vanities. The client's vision came first, with discussions of every finer detail such as the final colour scheme.

A detailed project such as this requires great communication from both parties. Following the consultation stage, 3D drawings were completed to envision the final design for the client. After two weeks of an install, the end result was achieved and delivered over to the Pillo Hotel and its members.


"The project ran very smoothly and as I had worked with Paul many years previous in another gym I knew there would be no issues. Paul came up with the colour scheme and the overall design. I believe the highlight to be the lockers as the colour and design works perfectly with the rest of the design."

Niamh Walsh, Leisure Manager, Pillo Hotel.

“This was an exciting project to be a part of to redesign and construct the hotel’s much needed changing facilities. Every last detail was thought out, and I think the final result speaks for itself.”

Paul Copeland, McSport, Commercial Director.
