Putting Braemar on the map

Grundfos, Braemar, Fife Arms, hotel, Magna

Following a 2-year restoration, the Fife Arms Hotel in Braemar a very popular hotel - originally built in the 19th century - recently reopened its doors. With its 46 individually designed rooms and a wonderful eclectic collection of 12,000 pieces of carefully sourced local artefacts, historical objects and artwork, this hotel may be located in the coldest part of Scotland, but the impact on visitors is warm and inviting.

Ensuring that the internal climate and M&E services are able to deliver to the highest standards, is a complete pump solution from Grundfos Pumps who collaborated with consultants RSP and contractors John G Mackintosh. The collective final selection incorporated a range of energy efficient, variable speed pumps that included both single and twin pump models from the MAGNA3 and TPE ranges of circulators, these are further supported by a Hydro MPC-E booster set, a pressurisation unit as well as other ancillary items.

Reputation is everything when it comes to hotels and with such a unique offering the Fife Arms has already receiving rave reviews, this one hotel that is already carving a niche of itself that will be very hard for others to emulate.
