SMD Head Office

Commercial // North Tyneside

SMD is a Tyneside based company, with a global reputation, specialising in the design and manufacture of sophisticated marine construction and survey equipment.

SMD required a two storey Head Office on their site at the location of the former Turbinia Works in Wallsend. The building is approached from the north and the site backs directly onto the River Tyne. The building was designed to maximise views across the river and the south elevation features extensive areas of glazing and balconies at first floor. The palette of materials was chosen to reflect the engineered nature of the Client’s products.

The building services have been designed for maximum efficiency and environmental control throughout the year.
