Gilbert Ash were appointed as contractor for the construction element of this £25m project.
Ray Hutchinson, managing director of Gilbert-Ash, said:
“City Quays Hotel represents one of the largest contracts that we have worked on in Northern Ireland in recent years, with a project value of £22m, and we are excited to commence work on site. We know that the finished property will be a welcome new addition to the local leisure accommodation offering, particularly at a time when demand for beds is at an all-time high.
There are a number of major construction projects under way in Belfast at the moment which will substantially change the face of the city in the coming year. Few buildings are able to capitalise on a view over the River Lagan and we think that this hotel and its riverside terrace will allow locals and tourists alike to enjoy one of the city’s greatest assets.”
Harvey Group have a long-standing relationship with Gilbert Ash and are working alongside them on various other projects throughout the UK such as; Royal College of Pathology London and Sevenoaks School - New Science, Technology & Sixth Form Centre in Kent.
