A North East manufacturer has secured the contract to design and supply lighting to one of the region’s most exciting regeneration projects.

Artech Lighting has been appointed lighting partner by NG Bailey Ltd, for the Bank House development in the heart of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

The Durham manufacturer will supply thousands of its Nitor and Flowline products to the scheme, which, when complete, will create some of the most sought-after business space in the North of England.

Bank House is the first phase of Pilgrim Place, which will eventually deliver over 400,000sqft of new offices, offering spectacular views across the Tyne Bridge and up Pilgrim Street towards the centre of the city.

Artech Lighting Managing Director, Stuart Hylton, said:

“This is such an exciting project in an area that is set to be rejuvenated in the coming months and years.

“It’s always a little more special to work on a project in the North East and we commend the Bank House team for “shopping local” when sourcing suppliers. Our team of designers have worked closely with NG Bailey, Bowmer and Kirkland to ensure we deliver an exceptional lighting solution for the project.

“Bank House will set a new standard for urban regeneration in Newcastle city centre and Artech is proud to deliver a lighting scheme that will set a new standard for workspace illumination.”

Bank House will neighbour Swan House, which sits on the roundabout over the A167, overlooking the Tyne Bridge. The prominent gateway to one of Newcastle’s most important historic streets, Grey Street, will also see a great deal of public realm pedestrianisation as part of the Pilgrim Place upgrades.

Work is due to be completed next summer, with occupation beginning in Autumn 2023.

Standing at 12 storeys, the landmark development offers column-free space with full height glazing, serviced by a generous ground floor reception.
