Other Information

  • This building was the offices for the Government for the North East until the Citygate office development was completed in 2004.
  • The demolition contractor had to demolish the roof slab of the building by hand as it was unable to support the weight of anything heavier than workmen. It was only once this was completed that they were able to move machinery in to speed up the demolition.
