The Spark – Newcastle Helix

Construction started this week on ‘The Spark’, Legal and General’s second landmark office building on the wider Newcastle Helix development.

The Newcastle Helix is a striking, multi-million pound development which combines commercial and residential space, with research and education facilities. It is one of the largest urban regeneration schemes of its kind in the UK and spans over 9.7 hectares. Once complete, it will provide more than 4,000 jobs, 500,000ft² of office and research facilities and 450 new homes. Works began a couple of years ago and have been led by a partnership between Newcastle City Council, Newcastle University and Legal and General.

Arranged over 12 floors, ‘The Spark’ will deliver approximately 100,000ft² Grade A office space, with retail opportunities at lower floors and extensive external landscaping.

The development is targeting BREEAM “Excellent” and a WiredScore Platinum rating, as well as connecting into a District Energy network that will service the building.

We are pleased to be working on this exciting scheme, acting as the Project Managers and Employer’s Agent.
