Meldrum were successful in being awarded the Design and Build contract for the joint venture between the Port of Blyth and Newcastle University.

The project was a light gauge steel frame structure with a combination of cedar boarding and facing brickwork to the outer skin finish. The structure incorporated powder coated aluminium windows and a saran finished flat roof.

The internal design covered a workshop area, an aquaria, a meeting room, teaching area facilities and a drying room to a total floor area of 335m2 and the contract was completed including external works in 22 working weeks. This took place in a live port environment and it was imperative that we were aware of this on-site and kept constant communication with the client and surrounding areas of the port to ensure no disruption.
