Project nears completion

An iconic four-story mixed use building, part of the £22m invested in the upgrade of the Haymarket Metro station, is close to completion in the center of Newcastle.

Even the domed roof, a shape chosen not just because of its appearance but because it possesses inherent strength, presented a host of technical issues we needed to overcome,” explained Alastair Bell, Director, Reid Judd Brown Architecture. “One of our architectural engineers, Luca Biselli, is a recognized expert in the use of the very latest 3D modeling software technology called Rhino and has been able to design the highly complex roof which only a few years ago would have been technically impossible to achieve."
