Hybrid construction methods chosen for new Dakota Hotel in Manchester

Structural stability to be provided by PreFastCore system

PCE Ltd have been appointed by GMI Construction Group PLC to design and build an offsite engineered structural Hybrid frame for the nine storey five star deluxe hotel for the Dakota Boutique hotel chain which is being built on Ducie Street, Manchester. 

Once completed, the luxury hotel will hold 137 bedrooms over 8 levels with the 9th level containing executive suites. Dakota Deluxe Manchester will be one of the luxury hotels developed by the company suited for city centre locations in the UK and will feature a cocktail bar, restaurant grill and terraces for guests facing in the direction of the water of Piccadilly Basin.


Hybrid construction benefits

PCE are responsible for the design and build of the superstructure using their well proven offsite engineering Hybrid approach, with the structural stability to both the lower steel frame and upper concrete construction being provided by the stair and lift shaft cores being constructed using PCE’s PreFastCore system. The Manchester Dakota Hotel development forms part of the Evans Property Group strategic plan to bring its Luxury Dakota brand hotels to all key UK regional cities in the next five years. The overall project has been designed by Leeds based KPP Architects and International Consulting Engineers, the JPG Group.
