Gateshead based Construction Photographer shows progress of Gateshead MSCP
Award Winning Gateshead-based Construction Photographer James Thompson visited the construction site of the new Gateshead MSCP situated in the prestigious Baltic Business Quarter on Gateshead Quayside. Having seen some images on LinkedIn that piqued our interest but didn’t seem to do this impressive design justice, James decided to visit as a Personal Project as it is on our doorstep so-to-speak.
James is a Commercial and Construction Photographer, part of the team at UK Construction Photography, based at their new offices in Team Valley Gateshead, a minutes walk away from Team Valley Retail Park. We are always keen to see what is happening in our local area as much of the Construction Site Projects we cover are based in either London, The Midlands or Scotland.
We haven’t been commissioned to photograph this Car Park, we have visited as it is such a lovely looking building for what is essentially a Multi Storey Car Park!
We have photographed several beautiful car parks but mainly in London and Glasgow. It is great to see so much care and pride go into the design and construction of a car park , especially in the North East.

Online research reveals that Willmott Dixon were awarded the £23 million contract to complete the project.
Willmott Dixons news updates informs us that:”
Appointed by Gateshead Council through the Scape National Major Works framework, the project will deliver 1,000 parking spaces as part of an extensive regeneration of the area, which also includes a landmark Arena, Conference and Exhibition centre, anticipated to create around 2,000 new jobs and transform the Gateshead quayside.
The development will mark the 12th project delivered for Gateshead Council by Willmott Dixon, following the recent completion of the £12.8m ‘Riga’ office development in 2020, also located in the Baltic Quarter, which provided the first Grade-A office building in the Gateshead Quays area for over a decade.
Providing vital parking space to support the new £260m Newcastle Gateshead Quays development, this latest project for Gateshead Council involves constructing a 10 storey steel framed facility. There will also be 50 Electric Vehicle charge points, with the future potential provision of a further 300.
Other features include a new pay on exit parking management system, a dedicated disabled parking area and spaces for motorcycles. To reduce the carbon footprint of the building, a large array of photovoltaic (PV) panels will be situated above the top level of parking. Additional biodiversity measures are being implemented including a net gains adjustment.”

I believe that Maple Sunscreening are the contractors for the beautiful cladding which gives the building an amazing glow in oblique sunlight. Credit to them for such an amazing job. Reduce the image above to simple Black and White tones and the beauty of the facade is truly revealed.
