Following on from our top ranking in the NEUPC Framework, Identity Consult were awarded the Stephenson Redevelopment project, with a brief to create a showcase of Engineering at Newcastle University.

Starting at RIBA Stage 0, working with NORR Architects, JH Partners for M&E design and Studio Horn for Structural design, Identity Consult have managed the stakeholder engagement process to define the brief from various parties including; students, teaching staff, researchers, industry partners, technical staff and the Estates Support Service.

The project has now progressed through RIBA Stages 1 – 4, with Bowmer & Kirkland appointed as main contractor through a two-stage Design & Build procurement route. Due to Coronavirus the project has been paused at the end of Stage 4.

In addition to our core services of Project Management and Cost Management, Identity Consult are also providing BIM Leader services on the Stephenson Project, ensuring the project meets the University’s BIM goals including better stakeholder engagement using the model for visualisation and obtaining structured, digital O&Ms.
