I don't actually mind that Uni building. OK the colour does remind one of a brutalist era, but I think the design and finish is OK, and to be fair, not every building needs to be done in a luminous colour, it adds a bit of contrast to the area.

There's a "community engagement event" about the National Innovation Centres on Wednesday. With a picture of an interesting-looking building on the flyer that came through my door, the rather cruder version of which below comes from the Science Central website. The URL for the image makes it look as if dates from last October, but I can't see a copy in this forum - I don't know if anyone knows anything more about it?

Thanks for the information SCNewcastle, I can only add that the Community Engagement will take place between 3pm -7 pm WEDNESDAY 28TH JULY in the Core . A scale model of the building and other information will be available for inspection. From the email I received it seems as though both National centers will be housed in he one building. If anyone is passing and they do drop in any information they can pass on will be very welcome

Proposal Erection of 4 storey building for learning and teaching uses, including teaching accommodation, lecture theatres, exhibition space, cafe (Class D1) and entrance lobby, with a link bridge to the Urban Sciences Building, and associated landscaping, Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems, access, servicing areas, accessible parking spaces and infrastructure works.

From the Planning Statement:

The application site (Plot 10) lies within the heart of the Science Central site on a 12,100m2 plot. It is bounded as follows:

 To the north by the USB building and north west by Science Square, with
Wellington Street and the relatively recently built multi-storey blocks of
student accommodation which made up the Downing’s complex lying
beyond;
 To the east by Plot 9, a vacant plot, with The Key, The Core, and then
Blue Star Square lying beyond;
 To the south east by a temporary car parking area on Plot 2;
 To the south by the forthcoming Newcastle Laboratory Building (NLB) on
Plot 4. This development received planning permission on 27 September
2016 (2016/0641/01 /DET). It will be 5 to 6 storeys and will be used for
offices and a commercial laboratory; and
 To the west by Plot 14, a vacant development plot which serves as an
interim parkland area, managed by the Science Central LLP.

The development proposals are for the following:

 State of the art learning facilities for up to 2,200 students across three
floors;
 Exhibition space, café and expansive social learning spaces;
 One 500-seat lecture theatre, and one 250 seat lecture theatre which can
combine to create a 750 seat auditorium;
 A 200-seat collaborative lecture theatre on the ground floor; and
 Extensive landscaping, including two new significant public spaces,
which incorporates Green Infrastructure and the use of Sustainable
Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS).

The LTC has been developed from a series of curved planes radiating out from the auditorium enabling the buildings form to be read both externally and internally. This has created an oyster shell shape, with a dynamic sweeping glazed curve along Oystershell Lane. The gable ends form strong architectural ends.

The building is 4 storeys in height, with the auditorium component of the building, containing the lecture theatres, being a single mass.

3.3 The building lies between Science Square, Knowledge Square and the
proposed new square on Drayman’s Way. The building’s main entrance lies on
the northern side adjacent to Science Square. A secondary entrance, through
the café, fronts onto Knowledge Square.

3.4 A 7.5m wide link bridge is proposed to connect the social learning space in the LTC to the social learning space in the USB. This will span over Oystershell Lane.

3.5 In terms of materials, various cladding types are proposed including curtain walling on the curved planes, glass reinforced cladding and an architectural hexagonal veil on the eastern and southern elevations, with aluminium rainscreen cladding on the corners. Curtain walling will also be used on the link bridge, with mirrored glass to reflect the building and surrounding environment.

3.6 The following uses are proposed on each floor of the building:

 Ground floor - exhibition space, lecture theatre, social learning space and café. There is a mezzanine floor within this space due to the large floor to floor height on the ground floor.
 First and second floors - a combination of teaching and learning rooms, as well as social learning spaces.
 A link bridge is proposed on the second floor providing a connection to the adjacent USB building. It is proposed that the social learning space extends onto the link bridge.
 Third floor - Newcastle University Business School (NUBS).
 Fourth floor – plant space

Design and Access Statement copyright Ryder:

The overall development potential will be distributed over two plots, Science Central Plot 1 and 2 connected by the public realm. Plot 1 will comprise of 106,317sqft NIA CAT A standard office with a gross floor plate of 1,662 sqm and a small area allocated for a café space of 220 sqm.

Plot 1 has been designed to enable a second development to be bought forward which is likely to be a hotel with the capacity in the region of 150 beds.

The use and form are not yet established. The potential number of occupants of Building A is 1,200. All facilities have been designed to cater for this maximum occupancy which has driven the size of the stair cores the number of lifts, WC’s, and escape strategy. The building is likely to be occupied by many organisations that may require more than one floor or a portion of a floor.

Ryder, Newcastle's second biggest architectural practice with a proud legacy of building some of the North East's finest buildings have produced a few plum proposals of late, no doubt hemmed in by tight developer goals. But this office development is an absolute corker of a proposal!

Science Central reeks of compromised architecture. From Downing to the Core, to the disappointment of the Urban Sciences building, so far such a bold masterplan has not been followed through with an ambition of design. Until now. Thank you Ryder and their team for reversing this trend!

Plans for £65m development at Newcastle's Science Central development given go ahead
Chris Knight 12 August 2017



Planning chiefs have given the green light to the £65 million regeneration project at Newcastle’s Science Central.

The eight-storey Grade A office development proposal submitted by Legal & General on the 24-acre former Newcastle Brown Ale brewery site will create 627 new jobs.

At a meeting of Newcastle City Council’s planning committee on Friday, plans were given the go-ahead subject to conditions and a section 106 agreement.

Rachel Dickie, investment manager at Legal & General Capital, said: “It is fantastic to have received planning approval on our first office development on this prime gateway plot. Delivering Grade A office space will help to act as an important catalyst for further investment in Newcastle Science Central and forms a significant next step in this major city centre regeneration project. The building, designed by Ryder Architecture, complements the existing development whilst adding a new dimension to Newcastle Science Central."

Julie Seaton, planning officer at Newcastle City Council, said: “The scheme will provide high-quality office development, and a distinct and what we feel will be a landmark building.”

Couldn’t agree more. This building although no masterpiece is a step in the right direction. Everything else reeks of mediocracy.
