We acted as Project Manager for the High Peak Borough Council and Derbyshire County Council who together own The Crescent, Buxton. The building is being renovated by the Trevor Osborne Property Group with the help of a £12 million HLF grant to become a new five Star Hotel and Thermal Spa to be operated by Danubius Hotels.
It is a complex project as the Grade I building sits astride the source of the Buxton Mineral water. Various rights and protections exist between the Council and Nestle who bottle and distribute the water. It is vital the water source is not contaminated or disrupted and various hydro-geologists are employed to advise.
The project is progressing well and the Pre-enabling Works were completed recently. Vinci plc have now commenced on the Enabling Works which protect the key historic fabric and renovate the envelope of the building.
