projectCitygate Phase 2

locationNewcastle upon Tyne


We were engaged by Hanro Developments for the final phase of their Citygate Development - a new £40m, 10,500m2 commercial office scheme at the head of St James Boulevard in Newcastle. The design team brief was to deliver a high quality office development that would attract the Government Office for the North East as an anchor tenant for the building.

Rather than repeating design solutions adopted for phase 1 of the development we explored a number of options before proposing a highly energy efficient HVAC solution comprising passive chilled beams, displacement ventilation, free cooling, heat recovery and low water usage that ensured the building achieved a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating which ultimately attracted the tenant to take the building.

Following our successful completion of the design of Citygate 2 scheme, we worked closely with Newcastle University on the fit out for the relocation of their Business School into the development.

The highly energy efficient building in Newcastle's city centre provided students and teachers with high-quality executive facilities in an ultra-modern learning environment. The scheme also includes learning and conference space and a VIP business suite.
