Newcastle Student Scheme Awaits Approval

Adderstone Group has submitted the proposal for a new £40 million student residential scheme in Newcastle city centre. The scheme was developed in partnership with planning consultancy Lichfields and Ryder Architecture and it will be built on the site of the Technopole office building at Manors Business Park. “Discussions with the city planners over a number of years have paved the way for some of the buildings at the park to transition over to residential uses. The park is adjacent to Northumbria University Campus and perfectly located for student accommodation as well as businesses connected in some way to the university,” said Ian Baggett, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Adderstone. The 535 beds will be located across 160 apartments in two buildings standing eight to 12 storeys high, containing a mix of accommodation such as studios and two, three, four, five and six bedroom apartments. In addition, it will also include a student hub, gym, dining room, games room and cinema. “With the support of the city planners we feel we have arrived at a robust, quality design that will stand the test of time for what is, after all, a prominent site in the city,” said Mark Clasper, Director at Ryder Architecture. Lichfields submitted a planning statement that confirms the development has the potential to contribute £10.7 million per annum to the local economy, creating hundreds of jobs during construction and on completion, as well as £500,000 to Newcastle City Council as Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) to deliver infrastructure to support the development of the wider area. “The scheme will result in the creation of full time and spin off jobs during construction, as well as supporting full time and part time job opportunities within the student accommodation itself, immediate area and wider city centre,” said a spokesperson from Lichfields.

CBI Labelled as Future Leaders Within the Construction Industry

The CBI is a Construction Council that is made up of 35 Chief Executives from across the sector. The Council has asked a group labelled as future leaders within the construction industry to create some recommendations that will help with collaboration and digitisation of the sector. The future leaders group that has been asked to compile these recommendations come from a range of different companies including BAM Nuttall, Carillion, Henry Boot, Kier Group, J Murphy & Sons, Mott Macdonald, NG Bailey, Pinsent Masons, Wates, Ryder Architecture and Saint Gobain. The group of future leaders will report to the CBI Construction Council in November with their recommendations that will hopefully see the industry adapt in preparation for the future. The Future leaders group is comprised of 18 individuals that have been marked as rising stars. The members of this council are all under the age of 35 and come companies at different parts of the supply chain as well as from a variety of different size businesses. The range of different sectors involved in making the recommendations should mean that the ideas put forward to the CBI will benefit companies across the supply chain. It is thought that bringing potential future leaders of the construction industry together will help to develop ideas from a fresher perspective. This will help the industry push forward the industry and lead to the development of solutions that are efficient in to the future. Thinking of new ideas will also help the construction sector manage with the aims set out by the Government to update infrastructure, as well as housing, roads, rail and nuclear. The Future Leaders Group ideas will complement the work that is done by the CBI Construction Council. This Construction Council works to promote the construction sector and help the Government in order to allow the industry to thrive and progress.
