This project saw Adderstone Group lead and manage the Tyne Theatre salvage and restoration operation, securing the future of the Grade I listed Tyne Theatre, the world’s last remaining working Victorian Theatre, as an entertainment venue.
Located within the Gosforth conservation area, Moorlands Hall was converted via façade retention from a derelict Victorian mansion into five of Newcastle upon Tyne’s finest apartments.A Mews house was also built on site.
In 2006, the Grade I listed building known as The Rehearsal Rooms in Newcastle upon Tyne, which is attached to The Tyne Theatre, the oldest remaining, working Victorian theatre in the world, was converted into 12 beautiful apartments.
In 2008, conversion took place of the former Telephone Exchange on the edge of the South Jesmond conservation area in Newcastle upon Tyne into 15,000 sq. ft. (1393 sq. m.) of contemporary office space.
I spent my year as a placement student working for Taemar Construction on behalf of Adderstone Group and what an eye-opening experience it has proved to be. It really has furthered my development and understanding of how the construction industry operates.
