Courtyard by Marriott hotel at Keele University Science and Innovation Park in Staffordshire marked its topping out yesterday. The Science and Innovation Park is one of the leading developments of its kind, providing unrivalled access to Keele University’s academic, research and commercial expertise.
The new 150 bedroom hotel will create 60 jobs through providing the much needed accommodation to support the growing conference and events business of the university, as well as the increasing numbers of visitors to Keele University Science and Innovation Park.
Built by one of the largest and most successful privately owned construction and development groups in the UK, Bowmer + Kirkland, the hotel is due to open later this year in Autumn.
Speaking on the build project, Neil Brook, Regional Director at Bowmer + Kirkland said: “We are delighted to have reached the topping out phase of the hotel on programme and look forward to the delivery of a first class hotel for our clients Mill Lane Estates, Marick Real Estate Ltd and Keele University in the coming months.”
