We secured consent for a purpose-built, state-of-the-art study and residential centre, at the heart of Newcastle University’s historic campus.

The 17,600sqm facility contains substantial teaching and communal spaces, together with 541 high-quality accommodation units for international students.

To formulate a persuasive case, we worked with other consultants and the local community to identify the key issues associated with the development of three separate buildings on a tightly constrained site. We maintained close contact with the community planning team, the council and other important stakeholders throughout the process.

With permission granted, construction began in 2009.
