Manchester-based structural engineering specialist TRP Consulting is working to help 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.

At Newbury, it is part of a redevelopment team that includes Swansea-based construction group Dawnus and Liverpool-based KKA Architecture.

TRP Consulting director Tim Royle said: “The redevelopment at Newbury is creating some fantastic facilities for racegoers and we are delighted to be helping deliver it.

“Newbury is a racecourse with a great history and now, thanks to this ambitious vision, an even greater future ahead of it.

“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.”
