A topping out ceremony has taken place on a new Workspace development in Blyth.

The ceremony celebrated the completion of the highest point of the building’s structure at Commissioners Quay on Blyth Quayside, which will be available for occupation from February 15.

The new Workspace, constructed by Bowmer and Kirkland Limited and managed by Arch, has been designed by award-winning architectural practice xsite architecture.

The landmark new development will help to regenerate and enhance Blyth Estuary’s reputation as a centre of excellence in energy and research.

Arch is leading the delivery of a mixed use development of the wider Commissioners Quay site as part of the regeneration of estuary.

Coun Dave Ledger, deputy leader of Northumberland County Council and chair of Arch, said:  “This is a flagship project for Arch, our partners and Blyth, designed to build on key business strengths and to establish facilities which will attract and grow new jobs and high growth enterprises. The new workspace will be central to the wider regeneration of the Quay.

“Our aim is to offer high-quality serviced office accommodation aimed to attract businesses in the energy sector which will add an exciting new dimension to the site and wider development and regeneration of the Blyth Estuary.”
