projectBaltic Place

locationGateshead, UK


Desco was appointed by City & Northern Developments to design the M&E services for this new, award-winning 14,000m2 commercial office development on a site adjacent to the Baltic Arts Centre on the south bank of the Tyne in Gateshead.

The scheme, comprising two office blocks, with views over the river Tyne and Newcastle city, linked by a common entrance foyer and secure undercroft car parking, achieved a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and was completed in 2009.

We subsequently completed the fit-out design for a number of end-user clients within the development including Santander and NEPIA as well as performing an overseeing role on behalf of the landlord Robertson.

We were also appointed to assist with the lighting design of the feature art installation ‘Swirl’ located on the office’s entrance plaza.
