Owned by Newcastle City Council and managed by Creative Space Management, the building offers contemporary office space for firms working on a range of future city challenges including energy, transport, big data and cloud computing.

The ground floor is available to hire for conferences and events of up to 150 delegates, and features two ceiling-mounted projectors, television and DVD facilities and free use of flipchart equipment.

Further breakout spaces are available on other levels, with two large seminar rooms each holding 36 delegates theatre-style, two 16-capacity training rooms, and two smaller 10-seater syndicate rooms forming part of Newcastle University's Centre for Professional and Executive development.

Rates for the ground floor space start at £400 for a morning or afternoon session, or £750 for full-day hire. A range of catering options are available from pop-up food stations to canapé platters.

The Core has been designed with urban sustainability at its heart and features a four-storey living wall, bee hotels, planted sedum roofs, rainwater harvesting and a series of adjoining green public spaces.
