The Green Architect in Newcastle and Gateshead (TGA) was appointed to explore a number of schemes for this Sandyford scheme neighbouring Newcastle City Centre. We explored retail shells purpose-built to meet the criteria defined by Sainsbury's, Tesco and Aldi. We explored various land class use cases such as restaurants and takeaways before strategising a student accommodation scheme to keep ahead of a new fast-growing city trend.
We addressed concerns over; sound pollution from the road; parking standards; highway authorities; pedestrian; accessibility; transport and the range of provisions; environmental; developments character, development strategy; material; safety, security and maintenance.
We produced a set of architectural drawings, street elevations and sketched street views. TGA managed the intrusive ground investigation and contamination reports; travel plan, parking and highway assessment, Section 106's, CDM duties as principal designer.
