Pell Frischmann is delighted to see the completion of The Lumen, an eight-storey, long-span composite steel structure, offering 106,000sqft of Grade A office and retail space developed as part of the Newcastle Helix masterplan.
As part of a large-scale urban regeneration project on a 24-acre brownfield site near Newcastle city centre, The Lumen was developed by a public-private partnership between Newcastle City Council, Newcastle University and Legal and General.
Appointed as the Civil and Structural Engineers for our client, Legal and General, Pell Frischmann is proud to have contributed to such an iconic site – one that looks to provide a flexible and modern workspace for professionals across science and technology industries.
At Pell Frischmann, our unique ownership structure means that most of our profits go towards funding the perpetual environmental and social obligations resulting from the cessation of hard coal mining. We are proud to have delivered a scheme that creates value aligned to our noble purpose and sustainable aspirations.
Kee Leung, Technical Director at Pell Frischmann, said:
“By combining our experience with extensive research and development into steel-framed buildings and low carbon structural solutions, we were able to effectively support Legal and General and the design team to ensure the delivery of this impressive open plan Grade A office space.”
At Pell Frischmann, “Excellence Through Innovation” permeates our company culture. We believe that quality engineering goes beyond simply achieving codified compliance. We are delighted to have worked on a project that looks to create 2,000 jobs, boost economic growth and unlock the potential for further investments within the area.
