Signature Group Searches for Contractor Workforce in Belfast

Signature Group’s growth and investment in Northern Ireland’s capital city of Belfast is reaching a milestone this month as the search begins for building contractors.

The expansion to Belfast was a natural move after the unprecedented success of Signature Group in Liverpool and the recent conversion of The Exchange Hotel, Cardiff. With Crumlin Road Courthouse and The Scottish Mutual Building already in development, and several other landmark buildings in discussion, Signature’s dedication to Northern Ireland is being firmly cemented.

As buildings that have suffered from neglect and are currently in a state of disrepair, major work and renovations are needed to bring them up to the standard that Signature Group is known for. To help us with the task, we’re searching for building contractors to assist in transforming these buildings back to their former glory.

Meet Signature Living

Signature Group is committed to working with local people to sensitively and sympathetically restore these iconic buildings, as well as the future developments which are to be announced soon. Effectively executing this renovation requires contractors from across the building sector, including electrical and plumbing contractors, kitchen and bathroom suppliers, construction workers, specialist hotel technology providers and fit-out companies.

To introduce potential contractors to Signature Group, who we are as a company and similar projects, we’re hosting a unique, informal meet and greet at Belfast City Hall. The event is taking place on Thursday 29th June between 2 pm and 5 pm and local contractors are invited to come along and share their portfolios and experience.

Lawrence Kenwright, founder and chairman of Signature Group, has always had an interest in the historical city. He has been keen to leave the Signature mark on Belfast for some time and believes the people and workforce of the city are a big part of what makes it so amazing.

He said: “One of the greatest draws to Northern Ireland for me was the outstanding calibre of its workforce and talent across so many industries.

“I firmly believe that Signature Living can benefit from the best of local talent in developing up to five new hotels here and am committed to working with local construction industry contractors and suppliers wherever possible.”

The Future of Signature Belfast

The purchase of Crumlin Road Courthouse was confirmed in March of this year. Despite extensive damage in the 20 years since its closure, the courthouse has a bright future for the first time in a long time. Signature Group is committed to investing £25 million to ensure the Grade B+ listed building gets the attention it deserves to become the benchmark for the hotel industry in Belfast.

The Scottish Mutual Building, located on Donegall Square South and Bedford Street, is the latest confirmed purchase and has been announced as the site for the much-anticipated George Best themed hotel. Basing the transformation on the highly popular Shankly Hotel in Liverpool, the hotel will be a fitting tribute to the Northern Irish legend.

Both sites, and the sites to be confirmed, will feature Signature Group’s trademark luxury décor and high-quality furnishings and fittings.

Sympathetic Restorations

Signature Group has a talent for taking iconic and historically significant buildings and returning them to their former glory. With the unparalleled success of 30 James Street, the former headquarters of the White Star Line Shipping Company and the home of the Titanic, and The Exchange Hotel (formerly Cardiff Coal Exchange), we know a thing or two about maintaining listed buildings’ DNA and intertwining history and modernity.

Both 30 James Street and The Exchange Hotel were desperately damaged before Signature Group took them on board. They’re now the most luxurious and beautiful buildings in their respective cities and guests have marvelled at their magnificent transformations.

If you’re a contractor looking to get involved in Belfast’s most exciting new hotel developments, come along to the Meet Signature Living event on Thursday 29th June to find out more about the exciting plans and how you can get involved.

All attendees are required to register their interest by midday on Monday 26th June, email info@lanyoncommunications.com or call 028 9018 3242 to be a part of Belfast’s next big thing.
