Project managing transformation of historic Ripon Spa Hotel
Silverstone Building Consultancy is to project manage the transformation of historic, Ripon Spa Hotel, in a multi-million-pound construction contract.
Located in the cathedral city of Ripon, the 43-bedroom Edwardian hotel - which was acquired by The Inn Collection Group in 2021 - is set in six acres of gardens and features public rooms including a ballroom, terrace bar and self-contained Turf Tavern Bar Bistro.

Silverstone Building Consultancy, is a specialist firm of chartered building surveyors and project managers, with offices in Newcastle and Leeds.
Ben Rennocks, director at the Leeds office of Silverstone Building Consultancy, said: “We have a long-standing relationship with The Inn Collection Group and we were initially brought in to act as project manager when it came to preparing pre-tender estimates, managing the necessary planning permission and appointing both a contractor and design team on behalf of the client.
“As well as the project management appointment our role, has now developed into a contract administrator. The work has started on site with the main contractor, STP Construction appointed, following a competitive tendering process. This is a 40-week construction programme which will see the hotel undergo extensive internal and external works. Guests will feel the benefit from the high-quality refurbishment for which The Inn Collection Group is famous.”
