North East ‘International Space Station’ office development to help launch SMEs

Work is now forging ahead on the first of two new commercial office buildings being constructed by Tynexe Commercial Limited as part of Phase Two at AirView Park.

Regional business figure and entrepreneur, Ammar Mirza CBE, is behind the new 10,200 sq ft ‘International Space Station’ (ISS), a centre of excellence facility being built specifically to help regional SMEs launch, scale-up and take advantage of global trade and export opportunities via neighbouring Newcastle International Airport.

It will not only support in-bound trade, but also project and showcase North East based companies to international business communities, enabling occupiers to gain greater access to worldwide markets.

This includes India, Turkey, the Middle East, Pakistan and the Netherlands via a collaborative business model offering “world-class” expertise, professional support and international connectivity through trusted partners.

The ISS is also being seen as a significant opportunity to drive growth and enhance the region’s economic recovery, creating new jobs and attracting further inward investment.

The digitally-enabled, shared workspace building will offer hot-desks, office suites and conference facilities, and accommodate over 100 desk spaces when ready to occupy at the end of the year.

Ammar Mirza CBE, explained: “As a passionate ambassador and advocate of the North East, the opportunity to create a bespoke, dedicated and global business hub that will support and better connect local companies with far-reaching markets is absolutely fantastic. It is very much needed for the region’s recovering economy.

“The North East is home to many innovative, forward-thinking organisations delivering world-class products and services.

“Therefore, if we can provide direct access to new overseas trade links using three key growth enablers – innovation, internationalisation and digital transformation - from a dedicated workspace building, we can help attract more inward investment opportunities, and ultimately, jobs for the area.

“By working collaboratively with regional stakeholders, the International Space Station will be a first of its kind ‘soft landing and launch pad’ for businesses. It’s been in the making for some time.”

The International Space Station is one of two new buildings currently coming out of the ground at AirView Park. Phase Two will offer 20,000 sq ft of modern office space within the 175,000 sq ft site, building upon the success of Phase One which attracted national homebuilder, Bellway plc, and its national headquarters.
