Demolition begins at Riverside Business Park, Bakewell

January 2019

Litton have placed a major demolition contract at Riverside Business Park, Bakewell. The demolition package will clear a substantial area of redundant buildings which have occupied the site for over seventy years, and make way for a new Premier Inn Hotel. The Hotel is currently out to tender and is planned to be on site in Summer 2019, with completion due in Summer 2020.

DSR Rotherham Ltd are undertaking the demolition contract over a 12 week programme. It is a complex contract which involves the retention of structures and archaeological and ecological supervision.

A spokesman for Litton and Riverside Business Park said “This is a landmark moment for us. We have now been working on this project for over 15 years and we are delighted that we will now see some material progress on this major project for Bakewell. This will significantly improve the site and the immediate area even before the hotel is built.”
