SYSTRA expands footprint in Newcastle

SYSTRA's new Newcastle office

SYSTRA has opened a new office in Newcastle city centre, reflecting recent growth and ambitious plans to nurture local talent.

The transport planning, engineering and infrastructure specialists’ new base is located in Portland House, a Grade A-listed building in the heart of the city.

Several of SYSTRA’s consultancy team will be based there, working on projects for local clients such as Tees Valley Combined Authority, Transport for the North East, South Tees Development Company, local authorities, as well as the Associated British Ports and National Highways.

SYSTRA is currently providing development planning advice for the International Advanced Manufacturing Park (IAMP), between South Tyneside and Sunderland, which will be home to the UK’s first Gigafactory, and is on the National Highways Spatial Planning Framework for the North East and Yorkshire and Humber.

Nick Salt, CEO of SYSTRA, said: “We are thrilled to move to Portland House in Newcastle, a superb modern space where we will develop and grow the business by delivering sustainable infrastructure and creating places that thrive right across the North-east.” 

Sebastien Dupont, managing director (consultancy) at SYSTRA, added: “Our colleagues are delighted with the new space in Newcastle. It offers a modern way of working with facilities that reflect our brand and the local area, has great access and transport links, and cements our presence in this vibrant city.

“We are all looking forward to growing our portfolio of work in the north east and continuing to support our clients on complex sustainable infrastructure projects in the UK, Ireland and around the world.”
