Conlon Construction starts major building work on historic Lake District hotel
Conlon Construction has started work on a £16 million project to transform the Lake District's Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa hotel into a world-class resort.
Designed by Mason Gillibrand Architects and funded by owners English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues, the historic hotel will be completely renovated with new features added.
Conlon Construction’s programme of works includes a full upgrade and refurbishment of all existing rooms, new outdoor leisure facilities, along with a new Atrium and a world class spa, complete with an outdoor heated infinity pool, sauna, steam room and Canadian hot tubs with views over the lake and mountains.
A further new building will open later in the year with 32 additional suites and studio rooms including its own club lounge and roof garden.
The hotel, which enjoys a waterfront setting looking out onto Lake Windermere, closed for its revamp in January and will reopen in April 2017, once the first phase of the renovation is complete.
Michael Conlon, chairman at Conlon Construction, said: “Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa is a historic building with so much potential and it’s a real privilege to be part of the biggest transformation in its history.
"Our experience will enable us to deliver the project effectively and play a part in contributing to the hotel’s vision of becoming a world-class resort.”
