Newcastle firm JDDK appointed to deliver package of improvements to grade II* estate
Newcastle-based JDDK Architects has been appointed to deliver a £4m project to upgrade the city’s grade II*-listed Byker Wall estate, designed by Ralph Erskine.
The firm was picked from six shortlisted teams in a competitive tender process for the Byker Community Trust (BCT). The process also included meeting a steering group of residents to discuss a pilot project for the 600-plus home estate.
BCT said that the upgrade work, which will aim to boost the setting of the homes – delivered between the late 1960s and early 1980s, would complete investment promises linked to the official transfer of the estate from Newcastle City Council.
