    The new 60.5m x 24.8m building will facilitate the support enhanced inspections for the inspection of Live Animals, Plants and Products of Animal Origin (POAO). Split into 3 distinct working zones, each area will have its own changing, inspection and toilet facilities alongside a shared office space.  

    Project Summary

    TGA provided traditional design through RIBA stages up to and including Stage 3, alongside the design team and construction team.

    Stage 4 technical design was worked on directly alongside Robertson Engineering Services.

    The building is to be operated by a Government Department, not Port of Tyne. So they were engaged in the process.

    The design and build steel frame portal building accommodates drive-in artic lorries and house chillers, freezers and an ambient store to protect goods requiring inspection.

    The Port of Tyne received £4.2m Government funding for this project which completed in 2021.
