Define Engineers have been appointed as a consultant to Glasshus Facades Ltd to carry out full scope tender support engineering calculations for this prestigious project in the rapidly developing city of Sunderland. The Newcastle practice has filed proposals for an 18,000m2 ‘business hub’ within the troubled plot, which has laid dormant since 1999. Sunderland City Council is expected to move 1,200 employees into the seven-storey building, sharing the offices with other public bodies looking to generate savings as well as some private firms.
