First Joint Desco and Pell Frischmann Project Win

Desco and Pell Frischmann are pleased to have secured our first major project together, supporting Legal & General in their new office development on the Science Central site in Newcastle.

Science Central is a £350m project to create a science and technology hub in the heart of Newcastle city centre, and we have been commissioned for work on a £25million new office facility on the site.

Legal & General has provided an initial £65 million investment which will fund completion of two buildings on premium plots on the site, offering over 200,000 sq ft of Grade A office space, create 2,000 jobs and boost economic growth, helping to unlock the potential of further investment in commercial and residential plots.

Alongside Legal & General, Newcastle City Council and Newcastle University are key development partners on the Science Central project. This latest office scheme will be the seventh structure on the site following The Core and The Key buildings which are both operational, the new Urban Sciences Building which is nearing completion on site, the Teaching and Learning Centre, Newcastle Laboratory and the joint National Innovation Centre for Ageing and National Centre for Smart Data Innovation development, which are all in varying stages of design.

Desco will provide the M&E building services engineering design on the new Legal and General office scheme, while Pell Frischmann will provide structural and civil engineering services.
