Building services appointment on Chartist Tower in Newport

19th Mar 2018

Developer, Garrison Barclay Estates has appointed our Cardiff-based Building Performance Engineering team to deliver building services design for the proposed redevelopment of the 15-storey Chartist Tower in Newport.

The project aims to transform a vacant 1960s office building into a new destination for the city, comprising a 4-star hotel, restaurant, Grade A office space and multiple retail units.

Working alongside the developer and Powell Dobson Architects, Hydrock’s team will deliver M&E design consultancy, fire engineering consultancy and acoustic design.

Subject to planning consent, the transformation of the Chartist Tower will include 160-hotel bedrooms over 11 floors, retail units on the ground floor and 25,000 sq ft of Grade A office space. Rooms will be designed to provide fantastic views across the city and the Bristol Channel.
