Great progress made in Blackpool

Published on 12/10/2018

The Truman team has been active on site since the end of May building the 120-bedroom Boulevard Hotel, situated on Blackpool’s promenade.

After completing a programme of enabling works, we began the construction phase of the hotel with a total of 163 CHD Piles driven into the sandy bedrock ground. The ground floor steel frame and transfer deck has been completed with a total of 120 tonnes of steel

The erection of the four-storey timber frame is underway and is programmed to take twelve weeks to finish. Once complete, the roof works and external façade will commence as the building begins to take shape. The facade features a render and stone slip cladding finish.

The Boulevard Hotel will sit alongside the existing Big Blue Hotel, next to the world famous Blackpool Pleasure Beach theme park. The hotel will feature a mix of family rooms, executive suites, conference facilities and a 150-cover restaurant.

The interior works will begin towards the end of the year for an expected handover in readiness for the Summer holidaymakers and day trippers
