The Lowry Hotel, Manchester

The Lowry Hotel was the first five star hotel in Manchester and one of only 20 hotels in the UK to be part of Leading Hotels of The World. The hotel offers 165 bedrooms including six suites and the Charles Forte Presidential Suite. This is complemented by restaurant, conference, meeting, functions and spa facilities.

John Rowan and Partners were appointed to undertake a full Technical Due Diligence survey and report on both the building fabric and mechanical & electrical services prior to our client, Westmont Hospitality’s, successful purchase of the property.

Following this, we were appointed as project / cost managers and principal designers for the renovation of the landmark 5 star hotel. All guest rooms were renovated, providing fresh new designs and decorations. The Riverside Suites were also renovated, to create themed suites, working with Manchester born artist Alan Rankle. While the Spa was reconfigured and transformed to incorporate specialist QMS treatment rooms.

All works were completed working closely with the hotel operations team, to minimise revenue impact and ensure the guest’s 5 star experience was maintained.
