Bardsley Construction is building on its expertise in the hospitality sector with the delivery of a Staycity aparthotel in central Manchester.
The family-owned firm based in Tameside, Greater Manchester secured the £17m contract to provide the eight-storey aparthotel located on Mason Street, New Cross.
The development will provide a total of 224 rooms via 48 one-bed and 176 studio apartments with reception, cafe and gym, to be operated by the fast-expanding Dublin-based Staycity Group. Work has recently started on site with completion due in December 2019.
This represents the third Staycity aparthotel in Manchester alongside its other properties at Laystall Street and Manchester Piccadilly.
The other members of the project team are architect SimpsonHaugh, structural engineer SHED, mechanical and electrical engineer JH Partners and employer’s agent/quantity surveyor, AFA Ltd.
Bardsley is already providing a 172-room hotel with gym, café, restaurant, conference and meeting facilities for AC Hotels by Marriot, part of Marriott International, on a neighbouring site bounded by Mason Street and Cable Street, via a £15.5m contract with Axcel Hospitality.
Ged Rooney, procurement director at Bardsley Construction, said: “Bardsley is an increasingly active player in the delivery of high quality hotel accommodation in Manchester where demand for new hospitality space continues to rise as the city improves its international connections with a truly global visitor market.”
