Restaurant design and fit-out specialist Dawnvale Group has announced that it is due to work on a multi-million pound revamp of the historic Wirral town hall in Merseyside as a multi-use recreational site.
The 122-year-old civic building will become a two-screen cinema with 18 accompanying creative studio and retail spaces, as well as a restaurant, bar and atrium café, the design of which Dawnvale will oversee.
The company will also manufacture and install equipment, provide interior design technical support and coordination as well as supplier, subcontractor and product sourcing.
The Beacon Arts Village in Hoylake, Wirral, owned by Hylgar Properties, was awarded a £3.64m grant funding from the government’s Coastal Community Fund to support the redevelopment.
Its ending is forecast for the end of 2020, however the deal was announced before the coronavirus outbreak.
Dawnvale Group, established in 1994, works alongside restaurant designers and operators throughout the UK to create bars and restaurants for the hotel and leisure industry.
The company continues to support the establishments it has designed even after opening, and will likewise support the ongoing maintenance of The Beacon’s kitchen equipment and fittings.
Neil Guest, managing director of Dawnvale, said: “We have fit out and designed interiors for everything from chain restaurants to independent hotels and this historic building is a very exciting project for us. In each project we immerse ourselves in the vision so our design works for the client and the customer and looks beautiful and is comfortable.
“The Beacon is a sensitive restoration project that will bring something truly magical to Hoylake and Wirral and we are delighted to have been asked to join the team. It’s extremely important to this community and is in a much-loved building and so we want to help create a special place that will be enjoyed for generations to come.”
Dawnvale Group has previously worked with the likes of The Alchemist, TGI Fridays, Red’s True BBQ and The Botanist, as well as London’s Sky Garden.
