Manchester-based principal contractor, McGoff Construction, has secured an £8m fitout contract as part of a new £20m attraction for family entertainment giant Merlin Entertainments.
Located in Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC), The Bear Grylls Adventure will open in 2018 targeting the adventure market with a high ropes course, indoor skydiving (iFLY), climbing wall and assault course. The 8,000sqm park also features a themed shop and café.
This latest contract win for McGoff follows the completion of two hugely successful builds for Merlin; The £10m Castle Hotel at LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort and The £9m CBeeBies Land Hotel at Alton Towers Resort; both of which handed over earlier this year.
Group commercial director; Dave McGoff said: “We are thrilled to be working with our valued client; Merlin Entertainments to deliver this unique and exciting new attraction at the NEC. The Bear Grylls Adventure is the first of its kind in the world so to be involved in such a landmark scheme really is fantastic.”
With enabling works now complete, the main project has now commenced and is scheduled for completion late 2018.
