Hull’s new DoubleTree by Hilton hotel is halfway

Developers of the £25m DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Hull have announced they have just passed the halfway point of the build.

The hotel, located in Ferensway, is being delivered by Lincolnshire-based developer Manorcrest Group, who began work on the site in October 2016.
With a 14-month construction period the eagerly awaited hotel, which will boast 165 bedrooms and a 1000 sqm ballroom for events and conferences, is due for completion in November this year.

Director of Manorcrest Group, Dean Wann, said: “The construction of the hotel is on track and now we are past the half way point you can really see the building being brought to life.

Over the last eight months, the concrete lift shaft was constructed and the floor slab and structure to the conference centre has been finished.

Over the course of the next few months and until completion, works on site will include the development of a restaurant space and rooftop bar, and the internal fit out of the conference centre and communal areas and the installation of its bedroom pods, which are being delivered from China.

Onsite works are continuing to the roof of the build which is 80 per cent complete, while the decking and concrete floors are being put in place.
