Multi-disciplinary consulting engineering firm, Patrick Parsons, provided engineering designs for a new vibrant social hub in Newcastle city centre.

STACK had its grand opening on Thursday, 16 August, with 60 shipping containers being put into place ahead of the big launch.

The biggest project of its kind outside of London, STACK features a lower level of shops, with staircases leading to an upper level of eateries and bars.

Patrick Parsons provided civil and structural engineering services on the scheme, including the bridge across the upper and lower levels, as well as strengthening work on the containers.

Andy Turner, Structural Technician at Patrick Parsons, said: “STACK is like nothing I’ve ever worked on before; we are thrilled to be involved in such a unique project locally and it’s great to see it completed.”
