Newcastle City Council approves design plans for two new local schools

Newcastle City Council has awarded Aura a contract to design three new schools.

This is part of its programme for new and expanded schools in the north and outer west of Newcastle.

Aura will undertake detailed design work for two new build schools, First School Newcastle Great Park and Simonside Primary, as well as an expansion of Kingston Park Primary.

Aura’s chief executive, Kirsty Thirlwell, said: “We are delighted to have won this contract and look forward to working closely with Newcastle City Council to create the best possible designs for new schools that will provide a modern sustainable learning environment.

“Our team has an extensive track record in delivering successful schools projects as well as a detailed understanding of the needs of the local communities which these schools will serve.”

The schools will be built to meet current and future demand for school places which is increasing with the continued growth in local population.

The schools are said to supposedly encompass a sustainable approach to construction, environmental servicing and travel to school. They will utilise modern technology for energy efficiency and sustainability.

All of the new school buildings will be constructed to council specifications, enhancing the immediate environment and providing a welcoming safe and secure facility for children on a site that balances the needs of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.

Aura, based in Gateshead, specialises in building consultancy, design and construction, property management and investment. The company has delivered over £400m of high-quality infrastructure across the North East in the past decade.
