Construction management consultancy Arcterra has secured a major new appointment with UK Land Estates.
The Boldon-based company will provide project management and construction design management (CDM) co-ordination services on the multi-million pound Dukesway Central development on Team Valley.
Dukesway Central will provide some 200,000 sq ft of industrial accommodation and is believed to be the largest development of its type about to commence in the region.
This latest appointment for Arcterra follows the handover of Go North East’s £7m state-of-the-art bus depot at Metro Riverside, Dunston, where the consultant acted as project manager and CDM co-ordinator for UK Land Estates.
Arcterra was set up in 2009 by director Scott Waite who said: “I am absolutely thrilled to announce a further appointment with UK Land Estates, as it allows us to build on the strong working relationship we have established with the developer advising them on a number of projects in the region, most notably the bus depot for Go North East.
“As project manager and CDM co-ordinator, clients gain from our ability to reduce the costs associated with the tendering process and build costs, which means they are getting better value for money while achieving the quality of building they envisaged at the outset.”
Arcterra is currently acting for City Leisure Holdings on the redevelopment of a key leisure site on Newcastle’s Grey Street to create Harry’s Bar and Grill, a new 250-seat cafe bar.
