The building, opened in late 2014, is set to become a flagship location in the heart of Newcastle, providing state-of-the-art serviced office accommodation for up-and-coming science and technology companies.
The infrastructure work, built around the installation of special high performance internet cabling, was designed by Advantex to provide among other services superfast broadband connectivity for tenants across the 2,750 sq. m seven-storey building.
It has been specifically designed to accommodate future demand for Wi-Fi and online digital services as further tenants move in to the site.
The project is the latest success for Advantex, which will see current turnover of £4m grow by 20% this year and an expansion of its current workforce of 45 people as it continues to help dozens of organisations across the region access investment funding for superfast broadband services.
Toby Hyam, managing director at Creative Space Management, operators of The Core, said current and future tenants will benefit from an advanced network that’s one of the foundation stones for the growth of their businesses.
“The Core is one of the most innovative new developments in the heart of the city, so we have to provide our tenants with secure and reliable access to the online services they need.
"Advantex’s solution undoubtedly provides the required long term solution that I am confident will deliver major performance benefits over many years for occupants.”
Advantex director Stephen O’Connell said: “The Core is a prestigious contract win for us and is a further example of a public/private sector initiative delivering top quality digital services for the success of local industry and commerce.
“We are able to help all types of organisations improve their operations through the provision of quality advice and infrastructure services.”
