Project Details:
Avoca Consulting Engineers have undertaken the full design of the mechanical and electrical works for the expanding cable maker Duco Ltd.
The four-hectare multi-million pound factory on the banks of the River Tyne, is the first of its kind within the UK, consisting of a new manufacturing plant and offices.  The impressive 60-metre height of the building is the same as a 20-23 storey building and will become a prominent landmark building both along the riverside and in Walker area.
The sustainable ‘Design and Build’ development with Balfour Beatty will significantly contribute to the local economy creating up to 140 jobs whilst expanding Duco’s new technologies for the growing offshore energy sector.
Building work for the scheme started in Spring 2012 and the development is due to be completed in early 2014.
