Scarborough company starts work on Mount Hotel refurbishment


Infiniti Roofing & Construction has started work on a six-month refurbishment of Scarborough’s waterfront hotel The Mount to create a new offering called the Bike and Boot.

Said to be a new concept, The Bike & Boot will see the former 50-bedroom Mount totally revitalised into an exceptional 65-bedroom ‘home from home’.

The six-month refurbishment contract by Scarborough-based Infiniti Roofing & Construction for Bike & Boot founders Simon Rhatigan and Simon Kershaw has ensured employment for about 20 skilled local construction professionals as well as specialists trade contractors.

Marcus Rowe, director of Infiniti Roofing & Construction, said: “This is an incredibly exciting project for us. It is an indication of the kind of high quality construction work we aim to be involved with. There are already plenty of hotels in Scarborough and North Yorkshire, but nothing at all like this – it will be truly spectacular.”

Working alongside multi-award winning interior designer Rachel McLane Ltd, the refurbishment includes new high end en-suite bathrooms, with new showers and toilets, plus new carpets and decoration in all 65 rooms, as well as the creation of a new in-house hotel cinema, E-bike charging stations, dog and boot wash, and refurbished bar, restaurant and kitchen areas.

This latest success for the Infiniti Scaffolding Group comes in the wake of the opening of a new 10,000sqft HQ in Scarborough and a new 4,000sqft depot in Leeds.  Recent group contracts include for Mitie Group on Leeds and Huddersfield job centres; Wharfedale Homes in Harrogate; the entertainment centre in York; ENGIE in Helmsley, and William Hare in Bury, Thorpe Arch and Scarborough.

Established in 2015, Infiniti Roofing & Construction employs a team of 10 staff including expert builders, roofing, general labourers and drivers, as well as an experienced administration and office team.
