A NORTH Yorkshire company has signed a six-figure contract to refurbish a hotel.

Scarborough-based Infiniti Group will refurbish the interior, exterior and roof of the town’s five-storey Esplanade Hotel for the Daish Hotel Group.

Work has already begun and will create jobs for between 15 and 20 Infiniti Group jobs and sub-contractors throughout the contract, which is due to be completed by the end of March.

“This is the second high-profile hotel refurbishment we have won in Scarborough and follows the conversion of The Mount Hotel into the Bike & Boot Hotel. The Esplanade is an amazing building with a wonderful location and will be a fantastic place for us to work,” said Alex Willgrass, Infiniti Group director.

“The Esplanade and other important works for the DWP confirm our status as one of the leading construction and building services companies in Yorkshire and the North of England.”

Set up in 2015, Infiniti Group has its headquarters in Scarborough and a depot in Leeds servicing its scaffolding, roofing and construction businesses. The roofing and construction business employs 10 staff, including builders, general labourers, and drivers.
