Tuthill Stairs

Project Overview

Careys was commissioned to design & build 66 new 2 and 3 bedroom flats in three apartment blocks, plus a multi-storey car park. Situated on the North side of the Tyne the site was on a steep slope. The existing buildings were demolished by Scudder, then a series of terraces were formed and a CFA piling rig lifted into position to install the contiguous piled walls. This was followed by extensive excavation and temporary support works. The flats were built with a reinforced concrete frame with a combination of fair faced concrete, brickwork, render, cladding and glazing forming the envelope.
