Infiniti Roofing & Construction has started work on the full refurbishment of one of the country’s most exciting, unique hotel launches, the Bike & Boot overlooking Scarborough’s waterfront.
The Bike & Boot is a new hotel concept, which will see the former 50-bedroom The Mount Hotel totally overhauled and revitalised into an exceptional 65-bedroom ‘home from home’.
The six-month refurbishment contract by Scarborough-based Infiniti Roofing & Construction for Bike & Boot founders Simon Rhatigan and Simon Kershaw, has ensured employment for about 20 skilled local construction professionals as well as specialists trade contractors brought into to create what will be a major holiday and short-stay visitor destination and leisure facility for local people.
“This is an incredibly exciting project for us,” said Marcus Rowe, director of Infiniti Roofing & Construction, part of the Infiniti Group, “and is an indication of the kind of high quality construction work that Infiniti Roofing & Construction aims to be involved with. There are already plenty of hotels in Scarborough and North Yorkshire, but nothing at all like this – it will be truly spectacular.”
Working alongside multi-award winning interior designer Rachel McLane Ltd, the refurbishment includes new high end en-suite bathrooms, with new showers and toilets, plus new carpets and decoration in all 65 rooms, as well as the creation of a new in-house hotel cinema, E-bike charging stations, dog and boot wash, and refurbished bar, restaurant and kitchen areas.
The Cliff Bridge Terrace location overlooking Scarborough harbour and waterfront, with the North Yorkshire Moors National Park nearby, will make the five-storey Bike & Boot perfect for adventure, outdoor pursuit and family holidays, as well as local residents.
This latest success for the Infiniti Scaffolding Group comes in the wake of the opening of a new 10,000sqft HQ in Scarborough and a new 4,000sqft depot in Leeds. Recent group contracts include for Mitie Group on Leeds and Huddersfield job centres; Wharfedale Homes in Harrogate; the entertainment centre in York; ENGIE in Helmsley, and William Hare in Bury, Thorpe Arch and Scarborough.
Established in 2015, Infiniti Roofing & Construction employs a team of 10 staff including expert builders, roofing, general labourers and drivers, as well as an experienced administration and office team.
