The View, Newcastle
Known as the View this building is the final development phase of the site previously occupied by the Newcastle Brewery.
The £18 million pound scheme incorporated an eighteen storey traditionally reinforced concrete frame with blade style columns around the perimeter incorporated into the internal partitions. The upper floors were 250mm thick traditionally reinforced two way spanning flat slabs with reinforced concrete stability core walls. An infill style secondary framing system was incorporated off the slab edges to support the facade, a rain screen style coloured glass and aluminium panel system. The development was handed over on time and budget in September 2014.
