Old Brownfield Site Wins RICS Award

A new £8m state-of-the art factory in Newton Aycliffe has been named best commercial development project. 

 “The remediation and redevelopment of a previously derelict and contaminated site provided a 15,000 square metre extension to the existing Tallent Automotive manufacturing plant at Newton Aycliffe 

Gestamp Tallent’s new manufacturing facility won the accolade at the RICS North East Renaissance Awards 

The factory, known as Plant 5, comprises a 185,000 square foot facility and was completed last year as an extension of the company’s existing facilities. 

Richard Farrey of Silverstone Building Consultancy said: ‘This award is a great achievement for the team at Silverstone and all the other highly skilled local suppliers that worked on the project.

 “It demonstrates that a team of small local firms can work together on a large scale project and deliver award winning results’.

 RICS judges said: ‘Tallent Automotive’s project was exactly what the North East needed – it had brought new life to a brownfield site.
