YAPF The North East Futures UTC Building Visit

​The North East Futures UTC is sited at the heart of Newcastle, figuratively and literally. Immediately behind the central railway station the new school sits on the site of George Stephensons Locomotive yard.

Join the YAPF for the first building tour of 2018.

Meet Project Architect Jonny Flavin from xsite architecture LLP to tour The North East Futures UTC whilst under construction.

A new build block provides simple, functional teaching space, while the listed structure is celebrated as the centre piece of the school building not only functionally but also in helping to shape its identity and reinforce its ethos.

There is an explicit connection between the legacy of innovation and entrepreneurship left on the site by Victorian steam pioneers such as Stephenson and Hawthorn, and the UTC’s mission to educate the inventors, engineers, thought leaders, scientists, designers and technicians of tomorrow.
