Gus Robinson Awarded Contract for Tyneside Development


Serving as one of the largest contracts ever to have been awarded to the firm, Gus Robinson Developments, a leading development specialist in the North East of England, has successfully secured a £4.8m contract for at the Tyneside development project.

The site, at Great Park, Newcastle, has had a steady flow of development work ever since 2001, with circa 1,500 residential properties having been developed, alongside a number of key public facilities and commercial areas. Now deemed to be an ever-expanding community, the site is considered to be a hotbed of optimism and potential for further development.

And at this highly enviable location, Gus Robinson Developments has been awarded a key contract to develop residential property space (effectively, apartment space) atop retail units which is expected to add yet another combination of community-enhancing credentials to support further prosperity at the site.

Most specifically, the project will see Gus Robinson Developments creating circa 38 two-bedroomed apartments on-site, on behalf of Benicia Homes, a provider of social housing solutions. Works are expected to commence by the end of the month, with an expected completion of time of approximately one year.

Of course, representing a landmark deal to Gus Robinson Developments, the company’s Managing Director, Steve Bell expressed his delight at securing what is, at present, the organisation’s largest ever development contract to date, offering the organisation a unique opportunity to showcase its capacity to deliver on larger projects in enviable locations.

Having already undertaken a number of differing commercial and retail development projects, as well as those pertaining to affordable housing over the years, Gus Robinson Developments will indeed be bringing a great deal of experience to the table, however, the project also signals the first time in which the company has been able to combine this experience in one project, as Steve Bell explains: “This is the first time we have been able to showcase both parts of the business within the same project and the whole of the team are looking forward to seeing the scheme progress.”
