Hill Court, Newcastle upon Tyne
Hill Court forms part of the Student accommodation within Newcastle upon Tyne. It is located next to St James Park (Formally, The Sports Direct Stadium).
Northern Structures Limited won the contract to supply and erect the structural steelwork for the extension on top of Hill Court. The building currently stands at circa 8 storeys tall. In total we have supplied circa 10 tonnes of steel, which will add another 8 floors to the building.
All Steelwork has been designed to BS5950, and painted with a coat of red colour zinc primer to protect it from the elements. The steelwork connects to the existing building via holding down bolts fitted securely into the concrete.
Working at heights can be very dangerous. Each of our specialist erectors have been rigorously trained so that the risks associated with this type of work are reduced and managed. This leads to a safe working environment for all.
