Truman Design & Build starts work on new Manchester hotel

135-bedroom scheme next to Irish World Heritage Centre

Truman Design & Build starts work on new Manchester hotel

Work has started on a £6.5m hotel next to the Irish World Heritage Centre in Manchester.

Truman Design & Build, based in Bolton, is the main contractor for the 135-bedroom hotel, which is due to open later this year. The brand which will operate the hotel will be named in due course.

Along with the design and construction phases, Truman will also fit out the hotel, which is being developed on a derelict 1.8-acre site on Irish Town Way in Cheetham Hill. Further works will include extensive landscaping and parking for 110 vehicles.

The Irish World Heritage Centre is a major base for the region’s Irish community, offering a diverse programme of cultural activities alongside conference and events facilities.

Truman is an associate company of Oldham-based construction, fit-out and refurbishment specialist Medlock FRB.

Its team is led by executive chairman Mike Peden, commercial director David Wheeler, project director Dan Lewis and design manager Nick Riley.

Truman targets projects in the £3m-£10m bracket across a variety of sectors, including hotels and leisure, student accommodation, commercial, industrial and healthcare, with a focus on schemes within a 100-mile radius of Manchester.

Recently-completed projects include ones at tennis and fitness centre The Shrewsbury Club in Shropshire, the MADE Wellness Centre at the Moddershall Oaks Country Spa Retreat in Stone, Staffordshire, and The Flower Bowl family entertainment complex near Garstang in Lancashire.

Truman is currently on site as the main contractor for a new £12m hotel at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

Dan Lewis said: “We are excited to be on site for the construction and fit-out of the new hotel next to the Irish World Heritage Centre.

“It is a prestigious scheme which will provide much-needed hotel accommodation for visitors to the complex and to the surrounding area, including Manchester Arena and the city centre.

“We have a team of highly-experienced professionals who are committed to delivering projects safely, on time and on budget. This project further underlines Truman’s credibility in the design, construction and fit-out of prominent developments across the region.”
