Preston-based structural engineering specialist TRP Consulting is helping to deliver the first phase of the ambitious £20m redevelopment of Newbury Racecourse.
The practice is part of the team delivering the ‘Heartspace’ project, which includes the stylish new ‘Owners and Trainers’ hospitality facility which is set to open its doors to racegoers in August.
The development is part of wide-ranging masterplan for the Berkshire course which is one of Britain’s leading racetracks. It is also one of a number of racecourse contracts TRP Consulting is currently working on.
TRP Consulting specialises in providing civil, structural and environmental engineering consultancy services. Its structural engineers have a strong track record of delivery on large complex building works.
The practice has helped successfully deliver leisure and sporting developments across the UK. As well as Newbury, it is also part of the design and construction team that is delivering a new 154 room hotel at Doncaster Racecourse – home of the world’s oldest ‘classic’ horse race The St Leger.
It was also part of the project team that delivered the impressive new main stand at Doncaster that has won widespread acclaim since opening in 2007 a part of a £32m revamp of the racecourse.
TRP Consulting’s highly-experienced engineers have also worked on developments at Aintree and Windsor racecourses, as well as projects at football stadiums including Old Trafford, Preston North End’s Deepdale ground and Bolton Wanderers’ Macron stadium.
TRP Consulting director Tim Royle said: “The work we are carrying out at Newbury is one of several high-profile sporting projects that we have been appointed to work on and highlights the increasing recognition that we have as a practice that delivers in this sector.”
