Whitley Bay Care Home

Client Name: Malhotra Group
Location: South Tyneside
Budget: £10 million
Project Details:

The seafront listed building formerly The Rex Hotel and Deep nightclub is to be converted into an 83-bedroom home with dining, leisure, treatment, administration and support facilities.

The state-of-the-art care home, will become part of the Malhotra Group’s platinum range providing specialist nursing care within superb facilities.

The new scheme is set to reuse the original four-storey structure, built in 1907 restoring its architectural character.   
The design includes a new extension and glazed infill section to be constructed, providing a clear separation between the old building.  This will replace the poorer quality and unsympathetic extensions to the front, side and rear.

Avoca Consulting Engineers will be providing fully detailed mechancial, electrical and plumbing design, as well as energy and sustainability advice right through the RIBA Stages 0-7.

This is now Avoca Consultiing Engineer’s third care home with Malhotra Group within 2 years.
