Michael Nugent Ltd Receives £30m Grand Central Hotel Belfast Contract
Michael Nugent Ltd has been awarded the contract for the development of the new £30m Grand Central Hotel on Royal Avenue, Belfast. We will be providing a full mechanical & electrical services installation, including the design and build package, for this prestigious project which is due to be completed in 2018.
The Grand Central will be the flagship hotel of the city standing at an impressive 24 storeys. It will include 300 luxurious bedrooms, a restaurant and a rooftop bar on the 24th floor called ‘The Observatory’.
The project consists of a redevelopment from the previous building (Windsor house, home of Invest NI) into Belfast’s newest 4 star hotel. At 80 metres high and over 122,000 sq ft in size, Windsor House is the second highest building in Belfast, and was built in 1975. Under the proposals, the ground to 15th floors of the landmark structure will be converted into new hotel accommodation, with the serviced apartments taking up the 16th and 17th floors.
Hastings Hotels, Northern Ireland’s premier collection of Hotels, are behind this development and are naming it ‘The Belfast Grand Central Hotel’ in honour of a former Belfast hotel, built in 1893. Sir William Hastings said that that the hotel will operate at the upper end of the four-star market and will create 150 new jobs in the hospitality sector.
Construction on site has already begun and Michael Nugent Ltd are due to commence M&E works in the next month.
