Quorum Business Park is a major new employment destination, located in Newcastle, developed by Grantside Quorum Ltd.
DarntonB3 were invited to submit designs as Architect for the next stage of the project, in a closed competition, to provide a mixed use development situated around the main entrance to the site.
We were successful in gaining the commission and designed a scheme providing BREEAM ‘Excellent’ offices of 3700 m2, Retail space, a Restaurant and a Hotel
By careful planning and an understanding of the needs of each client type we ensured that the retail element contributed to the overall flow of both pedestrians and traffic, without up-staging the larger hotel element, to which it is connected. This was achieved by shaping the building to allow it to merge with existing public realm elements, and to provide easy access for deliveries and passing trade.
Through careful planning we were able to offer significantly improved net to gross ratios within the commercial space than was briefed, without adding to the budget.
Energy efficiency and sustainability are key factors in our design approach and our teams are experienced in achieving BREEAM ratings of Excellent and Very Good on schemes.
We hold a track record of space planning, providing workable and efficient office environments.
By fully appraising individual client requirements, surveying existing premises and gaining full insight into proposed operations, we can help to achieve the optimum environment matched to end user needs.
In addition we have provided site master planning for business parks and large scale developments.
