Construction due for Phase 1 of Newcastle City Centre Transformation Programme
Construction is due to start in the coming months for Phase 1 of Newcastle City Centre Transformation Programme (NCCTP), a dynamic regeneration scheme in the city’s central shopping zone, improving its public realm and creating a smart city with a thriving evening economy.
Pell Frischmann is providing Civil & Structural Engineering services for LDA Design on behalf of Newcastle City Council. The transformative scheme will develop key streets within the city to create a more pedestrian-friendly, greener city centre.
CCTP aims to declutter the existing streetscape and provide more trees and planting, as well as the proposal to remove vehicle traffic from Grey Street and Blackett Street to create a more connected and safer environment between Northumberland Street and the Quayside.
Jonathan Childs, Pell Frischmann’s Buildings Sector Director said:
Pell Frischmann is enjoying working on NCCTP, ensuring the future of the city’s economy, providing well-designed, smart, flexible public realm spaces to support art, music and cultural events whilst maintaining its role as a major retail destination. The project provides opportunity to further our strong relationship with Newcastle, following the recent success of the Lumen building that forms part of the Helix masterplan for which we are also delivering the Spark Building.
