Building and Civil Engineering Contractors

Extension and refurbishment of Crowne Plaza, Belfast underway

MSM Contracts are pleased to announce that construction works started in early January 2018 to extend and refurbish the 4-star Crowne Plaza hotel in Shaw’s Bridge, south Belfast for our client, Andras House.


This project is the third major Belfast hotel project that MSM Contracts are currently delivering for Andras House, with the other two being the newbuild 178-bed Hampton by Hilton hotel and the 60-bed extension to the Holiday Inn Express.


The works will involve the refurbishment of 45nr guestrooms and corridor areas, plus a vertical extension to increase an existing guestroom wing from two-storey to three-storey, providing an additional 16nr guestrooms. The existing roof structure will be removed before constructing the vertical extension by traditional construction methods and tying the extension into the existing three-storey central core of the hotel at ridge level.


The project is due for completion by early summer 2018 and will include a complete interior fit-out of the guestrooms (including luxury suite accommodation) and corridors. The adjacent hotel areas will remain in occupation throughout the construction period and works will be delivered with minimal impact and H&S risk to hotel guests and staff.


The design team includes Johnston Houston (project manager/QS); Consarc Design Group (architects); Brian W Murray (structural); R&H Design (M&E) and Philip Rodgers Design (interior design).
