McLaughlin & Harvey to build Blackpool's new Winter Gardens

Blackpool Council has awarded McLaughlin & Harvey a £25m contract to build a new conference and exhibition centre for the town.

McLaughlin & Harvey’s contract also includes refurbishing and remodelling parts of the existing buildings at the adjacent Blackpool Winter Gardens.

The new centre is to be built on the site of a former car park on Leopold Grove with refurbishment works also unveiling the exterior of the outside of the Empress Ballroom for the first time in years.

Permission to demolish the derelict houses opposite the new conference centre is being sought. Planning permission has already been granted to a private investor to build a hotel across the road from the new centre.

Blackpool Council has commissioned designs from architects Bisset Adams, who previously worked on the refurbishment of Central Library in Blackpool, along with Max Fordham Mechanical & Electrical Engineers, Morgan Tucker Civil & Structural Engineers and Right Solution conference consultants.
