Non-league Sheffield FC, widely regarded as the world’s oldest football club, and Sheffield Eagles, the city’s professional rugby league club, have unveiled detailed plans for an innovative new 5,000-seater stadium.

On completion, the project will target BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC A+ ratings.

Morgan Sindall Construction’s North West team has been appointed on behalf of Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council to design and build a new £12M 450-space multi-storey car park. Forming part of a much wider regeneration scheme, the steel-framed structure will have five levels.

GMI Construction is set to build the luxury 118- room boutique Dakota hotel, which will transform the vacant St Anne’s Wharf building in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Scheduled for completion in Spring 2025, the development will generate 150 new jobs as well as creating an estimated £1.5M boost to the local economy.
