To open the UK’s first true spa hotel for over 100 years and in doing so bring the Grade I listed buildings at Buxton Crescent back to life. The project is also a key element in the continued regeneration and rejuvenation of Buxton.
We are providing full project management services. A major part of our role is the management of the complex redevelopment of the listed buildings and to manage a diverse group of stakeholders including the developer, HLF, county and local authorities, the hotel operator, English Heritage and Nestlé who have extraction rights for the Buxton spring water. Our role is to lead the developer's team using our extensive experience in both the heritage and leisure sectors to ensure efficient ways of working across the project and to maximise value for the client.
