The Core, Newcastle Helix, Tackling Climate Change

The Core is one of three workspaces managed by Creative Space in Newcastle.  A special place for research and for business growth, The Core recently produced a short film exploring how their occupier community are working to address climate change as they anticipate and respond to future city challenges.

In the film, The Core community talk about what businesses and researchers are doing in the green energy, environmental infrastructure, and circular economy sectors.

The Core is home to a trail-blazing group of knowledge-based, research-led small to medium size businesses, addressing the most pressing challenges for the future of cities, working to create real, positive and sustainable change across global markets.

With sustainability at their heart, The Core has a 27m tall living wall, a planted sedum roof, a rainwater harvesting system, and bee hotels! But it is their impressive workspace community that are driving the green agenda and promoting digitally enabled sustainability across their working practices.

More than just a workspace, The Core is a place people visit in order to connect and collaborate with businesses on a similar journey to carbon neutral. A popular destination for events, conferences and networking within Newcastle Helix, The Core exemplifies Newcastle’s Smart City status, and has a leading role to play within the wider 24-acre Newcastle Helix site; one of the most important innovation hubs in Europe.

Creative Space Management have been managing The Core since it opened its doors in November 2014, introducing Newcastle Helix as a new quarter of Newcastle’s city centre,

If you are a small to medium size business looking to locate in the heart of Newcastle and you want to stay in touch with The Core community, follow The Core on  LinkedIn and Twitter or contact the team to arrange a time to pop by and have a tour.


what our clients say

The energy, vision and enthusiasm that Toby and Paul brought to the project within a very challenging timescale were of great importance in helping GYBC secure grants of over £6m to enable works to begin on conversion of the Grade 1 listed St. George’s Chapel. The highly credible outline Business Plan has proved to be a sound basis for developing a viable enterprise, enabling work to commence on site with a high level of confidence.
