Brims to convert Newcastle factory into business centre

Northeast building contractor Brims Construction has been secured for a £6m scheme to convert a derelict former toffee factory into a centre for creative businesses in Newcastle and Gateshead.

Brims has been chosen as the preferred building contractor to develop the former Maynard’s factory in Newcastle’s Lower Ouseburn Valley, providing approximately 1,400m2 of workspace in 25 new units of semi-managed office space.

The company will be on site in a matter of weeks, with building work due to take approximately 12 months.
