One of the biggest urban regeneration projects started with Science Central, The Core overlooking Newcastle upon Tyne.
The award-winning seven storey building provides spaces for events and business networking alongside office space for companies working on a range of future-oriented urban challenges. Being the first step towards Newcastle Science City, The Core has been co-developed by Newcastle University and the local council. The building has been designed with sustainability in mind, featuring a four-storey living wall, bee hotels, planted sedum roofs, rainwater harvesting and energy efficient lighting. Class leading Hacel lighting solutions were specified to create a sustainable light environment suitable for commercial spaces, fully supporting the future organic ethos of Science Central.
