Quayside House occupies a commanding position on Newcastle’s Quayside. The 7,500 sq. ft. First Floor office was designed to reflect the NRF’s contemporary and global profile. The open-plan office was strategically designed to encourage agile and flexible working, providing the staff with a range of different workspaces for distinctive workstyles, such as hotdesks, touchdown tables, phone booths, collaboration areas, meeting rooms and a bright and generous café area for up to 100 staff. Building on the success of their Newcastle Hub, one year later, NRF secured the occupation of the Ground Floor of Quayside House. The 5,700 sq. ft. Ground Floor space required substantial refurbishment work to initially bring it to CAT A level and then follow it up with the CAT B install. The new office was designed in line with the First Floor project but with a different colour scheme to visually differentiate each floor. With an open plan workspace to accommodate 74nr staff, meeting spaces, collaboration & touchdown areas and a large café area & breakout space, the new addition to the Hub consolidates the Client’s presence in Newcastle’s Quayside. For both, the Ground and First Floor Projects, Workplace Designs Ltd. was instructed for Lead Design, Workplace Strategy, Project and Churn Management. Furthermore, WDL also managed the selection, procurement and installation of all the FF&E and Joinery for both floors.
