The Manchester-based firm specialises in providing civil, structural and environmental engineering consultancy services and will begin construction work on the 154-room Hilton Garden Inn early this year, with the hotel scheduled to open next summer.

Bosses at the racecourse hope the hotel will enhance Doncaster’s reputation as a conference venue. It will include a new first-floor event space boasting extensive views over the historic racecourse.

Racecourse owner Arena Racing Company (ARC) says the hotel marks “a new era” for the course, which hosts the St Leger every September.

TRP Consulting director Geoff Wilks said: “It’s great to be back at Doncaster Racecourse and working on this exciting next stage of its transformation. This is a sporting venue that is steeped in heritage and plays an important role in the local community.”
