Sustainability at Gateshead MSCP: Carbon Offset Initiatives

For a planned period within the current programme of works at Gateshead Quays Multi-Storey Car Park, we have offset 27 tCO2e through verified carbon reduction projects and planted eight trees in the North East. This demonstrates our commitment to reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainability in the region.

Our project is a testament to the power of collaboration. We work closely with Willmott Dixon and other partners to ensure high-quality workmanship and deliver the best possible service to Gateshead Council. This collaborative approach, underpinned by sustainable practices, enhances opportunities for local people and maximises social value outcomes.

We are proud to be part of this crucial piece of the Newcastle Gateshead Quays infrastructure work. Rainton Construction is delivering reinforced concrete foundations and walls, ground floor slab, waterproofing, roads and external works as part of a scheme in the Baltic Quarter of Gateshead Quays. Surfacing is undertaken by our in-house team, and materials are provided by Tynedale Roadstone. MGL Earthworks also supported this project, which will deliver 1,000 parking spaces as part of an extensive regeneration of the area.

The Gateshead Quayside’s transformation will create further development and opportunities for new jobs and local businesses.
