The choice of Medlock to be our main contractor was a crucial decision for me and my team and I’m pleased to say we made the right choice. Remodelling Dukes 92 was never going to be straightforward with the repositioning of the kitchen, toilets and the new public bar and dining areas but throughout the project I was fully informed of progress and any issues which occurred. I was impressed with the site team’s overall understanding of what was required and their flexible approach to the last-minute changes and challenges which inevitably happen with such a complex refurbishment. They provided a professional and competent service which was instrumental in bringing the project to a successful conclusion and I would have no hesitation in working with Medlock again in the future.

Dukes 92, Manchester

  • Client: Elle R Leisure
  • Architect: Space Invader Design
  • Value: £1m
  • Duration: 12 weeks

One of Manchester’s foremost and original bars has undergone a breath-taking £1m transformation courtesy of Medlock’s experienced site team.

The sympathetic modernisation of Dukes 92 in the city’s fashionable Castlefield district cleverly combines the building’s proud industrial heritage with sleek contemporary design.

The superb facilities include an opulent main bar-restaurant with a striking new centerpiece bar manufactured in the Medlock workshop, a secluded private dining area and first-floor gallery bar with a balcony over the legendary canalside sun-terrace.

The repositioning of the kitchen and toilets were also a major part of the three month project undertaken by Medlock.
