The 10,000sq m research laboratory will be the second building on site at Science Central, a 9.7-hectare development backed by the university and Newcastle City Council on the city's former Scottish and Newcastle Brewery site. Hawkins\Brown's plans include educational, workplace, residential, and leisure facilities.
