Mark Kitson was the Project Architect and Project Manager on this £13m refurbishment of one of Manchester’s iconic quality hotels, the grade II* listed Midland Hotel. The project involved the full refurbishment of the 312 bedrooms and all public areas.
The building operation was fully reviewed at an early stage. Nine additional bedrooms and a potential bar space were identified and included within the project creating new revenue streams for the hotel. As lead designer of a team including two interior designers, services and structural engineers, hotel staff and client, Mark undertook the coordination of the phasing of works to ensure the hotel remained trading throughout with minimal disruption. The Midland remains one of Manchester’s best loved character hotels.
