Helix Energy Centre

Project Intro

Newcastle Helix is a landmark 24-acre hybrid city quarter in the centre of Newcastle, built for international technology and science businesses, the local community and residents. United by one purpose: to help families, communities and other cities around the world to live healthier, longer, smarter and easier lives.

Helix Energy Centre is the first innovative scheme resulting from the Regenerate Newcastle Partnership; a joint venture between ENGIE and Newcastle City Council to develop and operate district energy schemes within the City over a 40-year term.

The facility on the flagship Newcastle Helix site, will use a 5km network of underground pipes to supply heating and cooling to 10 buildings and up to 450 homes on site.

It has been calculated that the scheme will provide a carbon emission saving of 30,650 tonnes over 40 years.

The plant screen on the roof and mesh screen on the elevation comprises of 2mm thick Proteus SC expanded mesh panels, PPC RAL7012 Basalt grey.

The stunning bespoke artwork was fabricated by AKV Group from 5mm thick aluminium sections, Anodic bronze.
