Harrogate appoints expansion contractor

Harrogate International Centre
(HIC) has appointed national firm Wates
Construction as the main contractor for the venue’s planned expansion
project.

The HIC will receive 3,300sqm of new
event space as well as a new entrance and registration
foyer.

Director of the HIC Stuart Quin,
says: “On completion of the contract, we will have added capacity to allow
existing events to grow but also enable us to penetrate new markets and,
importantly, create flexibility to allow us to run three or four events
simultaneously on site.”

Harrogate Borough Council and the
regional development agency Yorkshire Forward are jointly funding the project, which is expected
to begin this August
and be completed in autumn 2011.
