Contractor appointed for £12m LCCC hotel

Lancashire County Cricket Club has selected Galliford Try’s North West business to build a £12m Hilton Garden Inn hotel at its Emirates Old Trafford ground.

PP O’Connor is currently on site with the demolition of Old Trafford Lodge and Development House at the club, to make way for the new 150-bedroom hotel.

The hotel at the corner of Brian Statham Way and Talbot Road will include a café, ticket office, restaurant and bar.

The architect on the scheme is Glasgow-based Ica.

The Greater Manchester Combined Authority agreed to provide a £5m loan to Lancashire County Cricket Club from the Greater Manchester Growth and Growing Places funds in 2015, with match funding secured from Trafford Council. The club also raised £3m through a retail bond launch.

Jim Parker, managing director for Galliford Try Building North West, said: “Our expertise in both the hotel and sports stadia sectors has put us ahead of the competition this time and we look forward to working with Lancashire County Cricket Club to produce top-class facilities and further enhance this iconic ground.”
