The Eagles Community Arena is situated on a derelict parcel of land based in Elswick, Newcastle.
The development saw the construction of a 2,800-seater venue and 300 space car park, providing the Newcastle Eagles Basketball Team and the Eagles Community Foundation with their own home for the first time.
The arena provides a facility for the local community, schools and junior clubs, as well as the ability to host tournaments and corporate events.
A professional kitchen was installed as well as an operational community café based within the entrance lobby.
During the planning and design phase, the end user requirements were at the forefront to ensure a facility that was usable for all.
The size and flexibility of the facility allows a number of different activities to run at the same time, serving the needs of different user groups.
Sport England provided support and guidance throughout the process.
Adherence to Sport England requirements ensured accessibility and attractiveness to a variety of stakeholders, with fixtures and fittings being capable of withstanding considerable use giving the building a minimum expected lifespan of 60 years.
Stockton Crematorium is constructed on open land that had previously been used as school playing fields. The modern single storey building includes two service chapels and is surrounded by landscaped remembrance gardens.
Within the building there are two chapel wings with lobby and chapel, small waiting area, accessible toilets and access to a courtyard garden. The design has ensured the two wings are separated by the committal area, crematory equipment and staff offices and facilities.
Externally there is a porte-cochere for each wing and landscaped gardens include a memorial garden, memorial wall and Gardens of Remembrance. Additional works included construction of a new access road and car park.
Following collapse of an existing four span pedestrian bridge due to heavy floods, we completed the design, manufacture and installation of a replacement single span footbridge.
The bridge spanned 52m with a clear width of 2m. The project included removal of debris from the river bed prior to the start of the reconstruction.
Located at the former North Hylton campus of Sunderland College, College Grange is a high-quality residential development providing 105 new homes for Rent to Buy and Affordable Rent.
The properties will comprise a mix of different designs and generous landscaping to give the area a sense of community.
Delivered across two phases, the public realm project focussed on delivering improvements to the city centre street-scene in two adjacent streets; High Street West and Bridge Street.
The works on Bridge Street included the removal of existing bollards, stone slab footpaths and parking bay block paving. Subsequently, the paving was replaced, new kerb lines installed, road markings, signage and 150m of road surfacing completed.
On High Street West, works included; the lifting and replacement of existing paving and the creation of new steel framed tree pits for 9 existing trees, as well as bespoke granite boulders doubling up as street furniture and steel street benches.
On behalf of Together Housing Group, Beech Hill is a development of 105 new family homes for affordable rent. A mix of two, three, four, and five-bedroom homes will be constructed as well as a cycle route, public open space, parking facilities, and infrastructure works.
Construction work has been ongoing in the Beech Hill area over the past two years to prepare the site for re-development, with the demolition of three tower blocks, which had previously lay derelict for over 10 years.
Delivered by Esh’s civil engineering division, the scheme based at the entrance of the former Redcar steelworks has delivered a grand state-of-the-art entrance for a new and long-anticipated internationally distinctive industrial zone in the Tees Valley.
Demolition of the existing gatehouse paved the way for a new modern gatehouse building constructed with structural insulated panels. Car parking areas were formed to the east and west of the entrance – with the use of gabion retaining structures to retain the existing embankments – while hard landscaped footpaths and pedestrian islands were constructed to form a link between the parking facilities and gatehouse.
A key focal point of the development is a purpose-built 3.7-metre-high LED screen which was installed onto the existing bridge as a feature to showcase the capabilities of the industrial zone. Final decoration was provided with bespoke street lighting, modern landscaping, and planting of mature trees to create a welcoming, eye-catching entrance for visitors and international investors.
The 36,000ft2 Cleveland Community Safety Hub provides a modern day, innovative and efficient headquarters for Cleveland Police Force and partner agencies.
The Community Safety Hub houses the core function of the Police Force, the control room, the Senior Management Team and Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland.
Internally, the main entrance includes a café and community facilities and the open office space provides flexible and alternative working areas.
Car parking facilities include 205 staff parking spaces along with 24 visitor spaces. A small memorial garden/space is included in the approach to site for both staff and visitors to use, its location is intended to be a public recognition and contemplation space.
Modern construction methods and innovative technologies have provided a state-of-the-art building which has reduced running costs by £200,000 per year compared to those of the former Headquarters.
Energy usage is minimised through LED lighting and water saving WCs, and power is generated from the array of Photovoltaics. An attenuation pond has been constructed to allow attenuation from the application site and wider site.
100 tonnes of Teesside Steel was used in the construction of the scheme along with a further 140 tonnes from other British sites around the UK, further embedding it into the community.
Aldine House is a modern, purpose built secure centre for young people aged between 10-17 located on the outskirts of the City of Sheffield.
The scheme involved the construction of a two-storey extension and the conversion of an under-croft area into useable space.
All elements of the new building, including fixtures and fittings, were designed and installed to a specification befitting a secure unit.
The facility includes classrooms, a design and technology workshop, sports hall, kitchen, gym and en-suite bedrooms.
The under-croft conversion provides a space for both visitors and staff, including the creation of a meeting room, training rooms, sleep over areas and a medical room.
The scheme comprised the construction of 20 two and three-bedroom houses and bungalows available for social rent.
Each property included garden spaces and large internal areas to provide open plan and flexible living spaces for residents.
The project delivered a purpose-built crematorium and cemetery. The building accommodates a waiting area, chapel, administration area, interview room, office, ministers' room and store.
The works involved the extension of the existing NETPark technology park within Durham, including the completion of a major new road system, a number of new access routes and a new roundabout off the A177.
Construction of a new T-junction off the A177 provides a new access point to the development through carriageway widening, alongside a second access road made from the existing stub end located North of the existing mini-roundabout off Joseph Swan Road.
Additional works included; the installation of two new lay-bys, streetlighting and an art installation positioned at the entrance.
All associated drainage works were completed, including the installation of 2 storage basins (SUDS ponds).
Esh’s affordable housing division is currently delivering two refurbishment projects in Hartlepool and Gateshead which will see 63 units converted into 105 one-bedroom flats and two hub offices. Delivered on behalf of Home Group, units will be re-modelled as part of the ‘Move on Project’, creating ‘hub’ and ‘transition’ properties designed for residents who require support to live independently.
The development comprises the full re-modelling and refurbishment of existing units and all associated external works, drainage, and mains service works. Internal works include damp proofing, electrical re-wire, kitchen, and bathroom replacement, installation of a new heating system and full decoration, while externally doors and windows will be replaced, roof works, and external wall repairs undertaken.
The regeneration of these areas will provide improved quality of accommodation and enhanced security measures, ensuring residents are safe and secure in their homes, as well improving the quality of life for residents, reducing anti-social behaviour, and improving the appearance of the estates.
Major repair works to two bridges are currently underway in Jarrow. The project will see the structural refurbishment of Albert Road and Kirkstone Avenue bridges, both approximately 2 miles apart.
Located on the A185 and spanning two Nexus metro lines and one Network Rail line, the Albert Road bridge was last refurbished in 1988. The 51-year-old structure will undergo strengthening works, concrete repairs, resurfacing, installation of new bridge joints, replacement parapets and full re-waterproofing of the bridge deck.
The Kirkstone Avenue footbridge spans the A19 south of the Lindisfarne roundabout. The footbridge will be lifted and removed from site to be fully refurbished, repaired and modified before being installed and re-opened later in the project.
On site works at Kirkstone Avenue will include replacement of the parapets as well as raising the level of the bridge above the A19 to enable removal of the existing limited headroom restrictions on the A19 slip roads.
