Saltwell Business Park is a restoration project, seeing the conversion of a former Grade II listed school into flexible workspaces.
Saltwell Business Park is a 40,000 sq. ft business park in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear. The business park opened in 2011 and was one of few successful speculative developments to get off the ground in the region during tough business conditions that year.
The development brought about a remarkable transformation of Grade II listed school buildings which were restored and converted into modern, high-quality, self-contained suites, office suites, a dance school and a children’s nursery.
As a listed building, the requirement for this design and build project was to bring the development into the 21st century whilst being sympathetic to the characteristics of the building. A great deal of time was taken in the design stage to achieve the stringent requirements of the various building regulations whilst remaining true to the aesthetics and performance of the building.
