Allison Pike Partnership completed their latest project for Whitbread in October. The project, a four-storey, 44 bedroom annex at Premier Inn Stoke Hanley, was handled by Director, Paul Dunlop and project architect Deborah Greenwood. Medlock FRB were the principal contractors and the project managers were Monaghans.
Staff, colleagues and friends of Allison Pike toasted co-founder Mark Allison as he celebrated his retirement at the stylish Castlefield Rooms at Dukes 92 in Manchester last month.
Mark was joined by current and former staff, clients and fellow consultants, as well as his co-founder Greg Pike. Mark and Greg founded Allison Pike Partnership back in 1984. John Bray and Chris Gill, Joint Managing Directors, gave away some little-known tales about Mark’s career and raised a glass to him. Mark thanked everyone for attending as well as toasting the future of the practice.
Allison Pike have recently completed the refurbishment of the Goshawk pub in Mouldsworth, Cheshire for Hydes Brewery. This has transformed it into a charming destination country pub serving freshly prepared food in an appealing rural atmosphere. The layout retains separate rooms and the design uses many of the original features of the building that have been carefully restored to give an authentic feel. An Arts and Crafts theme pervades much of the interior with William Morris inspired designs in wallpapers and fabrics used extensively.
