Mott MacDonald to help restore seaside buildings

Mott MacDonald is to play a major role in the renovation of an historic seaside resort in the North East.

The engineering consultancy will work with architects ADP on the restoration of the Spanish City in Whitley Bay.

The area features a collection of Grade II listed waterfront pleasure buildings and public spaces, built over 100 years ago.

Mott MacDonald and ADP will undertake a series of structural surveys to assess the remaining lifespan of the structures and their suitability for reuse.

Restoration proposals include an activity centre and community space as well as food and retail outlets.

Mott MacDonald project director Gordon Hudson said: “This is a very special project for the people in the North East, which will ultimately bring the Spanish City back to functional use.

“Nearly a whole generation has missed out on the Spanish City experience and by restoring this culturally significant landmark we will hopefully create thousands of new memories for those who visit Whitely Bay and the wider region.”
