Catching the eye and the attention of the hospitality and travel industry, the new Dakota Deluxe hotel in the Bond Court area of Leeds is playing a major part in helping to regenerate a previously neglected part of the city.
The high profile 89 bedroom, 10-storey hotel, located on Greek Street on the site of a former restaurant and car park, includes the Bar & Grill restaurant, Salon Privé and a cocktail bar with a first-floor terrace.
Opened in 2017 it is already winning wide acclaim for its boutique styling, uncompromising room standards and fine food.
Sigmat light gauge steel framing was chosen for the building to enable the project to enjoy a rapid start to the build programme.
The Dakota Deluxe once again also saw Sigmat work again with GMI Construction and Evans Property Group.
"Working on more than one project with our customers is valuable in building good partnerships and a close understanding of their needs. It is cost and time efficient and has created trust in our ability to our promises” said Mark Eburne, CEO, Sigmat.

“Offsite construction ensures precision components, higher quality systems and accurate timescales to work to. We planned from the design stage for the date when the light gauge steel frame would arrive on site, with our team taking care of the logistics and on-site installation as well as the manufacturing of the sections."
