Mott MacDonald appointed technical advisor for new £260m Gateshead Quays development

Mott MacDonald has been appointed as technical advisor to Ask Patrizia for the proposed £260m riverside arena complex at Gateshead Quays in the north east of England. The company will oversee design development and verify that the design and build team deliver on their contractual obligations.

Located on the south bank of the Tyne directly in front of the town’s Millennium Bridge and adjacent to Sage Gateshead, the planned Gateshead Quays scheme includes 7,900m2 of conferencing and exhibition space. It features a 12,500-capacity arena, a conference and exhibition centre, a dual branded 3*/4* hotel connecting to the exhibition centre, as well as further leisure facilities, including a rooftop bar.

Phil Redman, Mott MacDonald’s north east area manager, said: “Gateshead Quays will offer first class arena, conference and exhibition facilities for international meetings and exhibitions, as well as music and cultural events. The scheme will also provide a real jobs and tourism boost to the region. We’re delighted to be part of this iconic project which builds on our previous work for Gateshead Council at the Sage Gateshead and MetroGreen. Our team in Newcastle will lead our work with support from colleagues across the UK.”

Ask Patrizia has submitted a planning application to Gateshead Council for the development and a decision is expected to be made later this year. If successful, work will begin onsite mid 2021, with the new complex set to open towards the end of 2023.
