Time Capsule – Belle Vue Hotel – Dunbar 2006

cropped-slide1b.jpgIn 2006, we were lucky enough to win a contract to carry out work on a well established hotel for McCarthy & Stone.

Originally this hotel was noted as having a window for everyday of the year. After a devastating fire that left this lovely building a shell, it lay derelict for many years.

Much later, the site was bought by McCarthy & Stone and after demolition works, the site was turned into a flagship site.

Enjoy the timeline pictures of the site from the demolition phase, right through to the finalisation stage:
