Public Sector HUB, Newcastle-Under-Lyme


Situated in the heart of Newcastle-under-Lyme next to the picturesque Queens Gardens and the Historic Centre, the Public Sector Hub provides a new central location in which to combine the services delivered by Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council and Staffordshire County Council.

Spread over four floors, the Hub integrates public services such as customer service facilities, the public library, Registrars office, families first facility, and the central police office, whilst also providing agile, open plan office spaces for both councils.

The Building seeks to integrate with the historic surrounding context, by utilising local materials and an appropriate and sympathetic scale, whilst providing a new key Civic Building of quality and distinction for Newcastle-under-Lyme.

The Building is designed with a fabric first approach to minimise heat loss from the building envelope in order to reduce energy consumption.
