Phased construction of 12 residential flats together with associated external works, on exposed brownfield site.
The retention and incorporation of an existing derelict building within the scheme due to its important heritage status.
Work included high specification finishes to glazing, balconies and solid oak staircases throughout.
Works carried out on extremely tight site sandwiched between a busy road, existing multi-storey residential development and River Tyne.
The site required piling adjacent to the existing quay wall, and as such required designing to minimise the risk of any surcharging.
Design required the retention of the existing derelict building due to its important heritage status. Because of its condition, this involved a detailed retention system to ensure safe working conditions within the structure.
A light gauge structural metal framing solution was employed to provide speed of erection due to the site’s exposed nature adjacent to the river.
