Commissioned by Rocco Forte’s ‘RF Hotels’ team in collaboration with Chapel Wharf Developments, we were appointed to develop their first major English hotel, “The Lowry” in Manchester.
This 160-key hotel with its Marco Pierre White operated restaurant, extensive bars, library, 500-person banqueting suite, business centre and treatment spa space with retail units at the ground floor was Manchester’s first ever five-star hotel.
Taking less than three years from start to opening, this was an exceptional project to be involved in. Especially considering it was delivered under budget and on time.
The building won local regeneration awards and the Large Hotel of the Year Award.View case study
