The Academic Building is a concrete framed building arranged over five floors, incorporating a structural steel frame to support a standing seam brass roof. It has a reinforced concrete basement constructed in contiguous piles.

The design features a dramatic atrium spanning the building’s length and a bold stone-glass façade revealing the open-plan ground floor at street level. The envelope cladding consists of sandstone panels, rain screen, structural glazing, curtain walling and traditional brick work.

It will provide circa 3,000m2 of teaching and recreational space for around 700 students, including a cafe, specially designed language and science labs, a lecture theatre, and offices for administration and teaching staff.

Due to open summer 2012, Newcastle is INTO’s biggest student centre yet, and will also include two new halls of residence. Altogether, the development will comprise 11,500 m2 of new build together with 3,000m2 of refurbished student living accommodation in 537 units.

McGee Construction was awarded the nine-month, £4.6M subcontract concrete works by main contractor, Balfour Beatty Construction Northern Limited. INTO Newcastle is a joint venture between Newcastle University and INTO Partnerships to provide an exciting new overseas student teaching and residential.
