In Dundee, Sharkey is embarking on the £22 million conversion of the Baxter Brothers & Co 1869 Jute Mill into the 102-room Indigo Hotel – along with the adjoining 85-unit Staybridge Suites, in partnership with developer Percor Capital and operator Focus Hotels Management.

And in St Andrews, it has commenced the new-build development of the leisure facility complete with swimming pool extension at the Old Course Hotel for Kohler, having already completed the refurbishment of 147 rooms and a new 100-plus car park facility in time for this year’s European Tour Alfred Dunhill Links Championship from 5 to 8 October.

Sharkey managing director Billy Harrison said: “The hotel and leisure sector has become a real niche for Sharkey over the last few years and we are now regularly working on fast-track refurbishments and new build developments like those in Dundee and St Andrews alongside a range of UK and international developers and operators.”
