Development will provide 1,500m2 of workspace in 25 new office units

Creative Space Management has been appointed facilities manager on the redevelopment of Newcastle-upon-Tyne’s Toffee Factory.

The development, which sits on the banks of the River Tyne, will provide about 1,500m2 of workspace in 25 new units of office space and is due to open in November 2011, once refurbishment is completed by lead contractor Brims Construction.

The project, which is jointly financed by the EU, regional development agency One North East and Newcastle council, will retain much of the building’s existing facade.
