    Multi-disciplinary consulting engineering firm, Patrick Parsons, has been appointed to provide a range of engineering services for a new hotel in Newcastle city centre, building on its expertise in this sector. Newcastle-headquartered Patrick Parsons was commissioned by developer Kier Property to work on the 222 room Motel One which is on course to be completed in late autumn.

    The firm is heavily involved in the development of the £13 million boutique hotel – following successful operations in Edinburgh, Aldgate and soon to be opened Manchester, for the German hotel chain – and is providing structural, civil and geoenvironmental services, including the design of a multi-storey steel frame with metal decking for the new part of the building.

    Due to its setting within a conservation area of the city, the refurbishment of the existing building has been carefully developed to take the existing archaeology and original features into account.
