Developers of a £137m regeneration scheme in Newcastle city centre have given it a name to reflect its historic roots.

The partnership of igloo Regeneration, Thriving Investments (part of the Places for People group) and Newcastle City Council has called the area behind Central Station Founders Place in recognition of its former use as the workshops and site offices of Robert Stephenson & Company, the first company in the world to specifically design and build locomotive steam engines.

The development, which makes up part of the wider Stephenson Quarter, includes a mix of new buildings and heritage buildings that have been renovated for employment use. Its spaces include the recently-completed Pattern Shop and a new office development called The Pioneer. Designed by RIBA Stirling Prize-winning architects Allford Hall Monaghan
