Student Central, Northumbria University

Based in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumbria University has been established since 1880. The university has two large campuses. City Campus, located in the City centre, is divided into City Campus East and City Campus West. In 2018 a number of areas in the City Campus underwent refurbishment including its Student Central, to which CTD Architectural Tiles were delighted to be a part of.

The University provided a clear brief to create a relaxing and informal area for group activity and employer presentations. Due to the high volume of traffic in the room, the flooring needed to be hardwearing and provide a timeless look due the many stages of the project that would be ongoing for at least 3 years.

CTD Architectural Tiles selected British Stone Beige because of it’s natural, stone effect look and its random pattern to create a light comfortable space in which to interact. The British Stone range is available in three colours, four sizes and two finishes. Perfect for that unique look and texture of natural stone with all the benefits of a tile.

Working with Architects Ryder (Clive Rankin), Main Contractors Northern Bear & Tiling Contractors T Best Tiling (Tony Best) & Newcastle Tiling (Gerry McDade), CTD Architectural Tiles Senior Sales Manager Sean Lane supplied over 900m2 of tiles to this fantastic Student Central transformation.
