Rhodar begins iconic heritage project
Posted on in Company News
Rhodar has commenced works at the 170-year-old, Grade II listed George Hotel in Huddersfield - the site famously known as the birthplace of Rugby League in 1895.
Situated in the main square of Huddersfield, the building compliments its neighbour, the Huddersfield Railway Station with its fine Italian façade designed by William Walker.
This iconic landmark, now owned by Kirklees Council, is to undergo a major strip-out and renovation, to transform it into the home of the new National Rugby League Museum by 2024, part of a 10-year, £250m reinvigoration plan for the town.
Asbestos removal works and an intricate soft strip are being conducted throughout the building where we are also utilising a specialist precision dustless shot-blasting system as part of the initial 7-week project phase.
The hotel had been derelict for several years with no connected services and so Rhodar has established a self-contained compound to the side of the building to supply all power and water.Go Back
