North East engineer to help deliver £2.5m "Lego style" creative hub

A North East engineer has announced that it will be delivering the next phase of a multi-million pound digital and creative hub.

RWO Associates will be supporting the construction of the next phase of Boho 8, a £2.5m development of modular stack units based on Lego’s eight piece building block system.

The hub will provide 10,000 sq. ft. of flexible work space to meet the needs of the North East’s expanding digital and creative services sector.

The office complex, which sees onsite construction start in July, is expected to open in late 2020 and comes ahead of Boho 10, a development of three skyscrapers.

This forms part of an overall £250m investment project by Middlesbrough Borough Council in a scheme that is expected to create more than 2,000 jobs.

RWO’s managing director, Ross Oakley, commented: “This is another prestigious project for north east engineering capability, reflecting the skills and expertise available in the region to support innovative commercial design and build projects.

“It will see us continuing to develop our commercial offering and comes at a time when we are tendering for significant civil and structural work for a number of large residential and commercial contracts across the UK.”

RWO Associates is working with architects Seymour Architecture, which has offices in Morpeth and Middlesbrough, and designed Boho 8.

Director Andrew Bowkett said: “We are developing a site that considers the external public realm as much the building itself.

“That’s why we are working with RWO to meet current needs and deliver our innovative approach. They have the engineering skills, and experience to deliver the highest standards of service and quality.”
