Assets & Facilities

Whether you’re starting a business or growing an established company, North East England has something to offer when it comes to top-quality facilities. Our extensive range of accommodation includes everything from small co-working and managed office facilities to large-scale, Grade A offices.

Entrepreneurs and start-ups can access a choice of accelerator programmes, incubator hubs and co-working space. For example, Durham City Incubator is a fully-funded accelerator programme for Durham-based business owners and entrepreneurs.

The quality floor space available to smaller businesses is vast. From offices in city centres to managed workspaces, the region has a huge range of office space with flexible easy-in-easy-out terms at many locations.

Larger companies can choose Grade A office space in our city centres and out-of-town business parks. Newly built The Lumen in Newcastle city centre offers over 100,000 sq ft of prime city centre office accommodation while The Beam in Sunderland is home to online grocery giant Ocado and Energy company Asset55.

There is also a pipeline of new Grade A office accommodation in development across the North East. Milburngate in Durham city centre will provide 150,000 sq ft of premium office space while new developments in Newcastle and Riverside Sunderland will offer a range of new accommodation for businesses to locate and grow. Gateshead Quays, a £260 million development on the banks of the River Tyne, will create a conference and tourism hub that includes an arena, hotels and an exhibition and conference centre.

Quorum Park, Cobalt Park, NETPark, Doxford International Business Park, AirView Park and Spectrum Business Park are home to companies including Verisure, Sage UK, Accenture and Greggs and offer huge cost savings compared to similar facilities elsewhere in the UK.

All of these facilities are well-served by excellent and reliable public transport, plus a sought-after selection of additional services such as parking, gyms, childcare providers, retail outlets, bars, restaurants and entertainment venues.
