The main contractor for a Nuneaton Hotel development is to be Bam Construct UK.
145 bedroom Hampton by Hilton Hotel is phase one of Nuneaton town centre’s Abbey Street development.
Initial works including fencing, ground investigations and remediation have already been completed by Bam. The developer of the project is Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council, with its strategic development partner Queensberry. Phase one has been partially funded with a £13.3m grant from the government’s Future High Street Funds.
The second phase of the Abbey Street project is to include new buildings for leisure operators, a food hall, a town centre campus for North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College, together with a multi-storey car park.
Kris Wilson, council leader, said: “Abbey Street is seen as a crucial part of our town making Nuneaton so distinctive. The town centre will benefit from a new future in which leisure, food and drink and visitor facilities sit hand in hand with our market and town centre shops”.
It is anticipated that Hilton by Hampton should take approximately 20 months to build with completion expected in autumn 2023.
