As proud sponsors of Lumiere 2019, our latest 'Milburngate Talks' interview features festival director Helen Marriage, who sets the scene for what people can expect at this year's magical festival of light in Durham.
The Arlington Richardson Development Partnership has selected Tolent as its contractor for the construction of Phase One Milburngate in Durham City. The North East-based national contractor will begin construction in the coming weeks following the completion of the final site enabling works, which have been ongoing since January.
Plans to futureproof the first phase of our phase one office development at Milburngate, by ensuring it provides the highest level of digital infrastructure, have been endorsed by an international technology standard, which tracks the quality of broadband and telecoms infrastructure in major commercial property developments.
Durham is a great place to live, work and invest. That’s the message the county’s leaders took right to the heart of government recently, where influential figures from the county’s business, culture and education sectors demonstrated their passion for the area during a reception at the Houses of Parliament.
Lumiere, the UK’s largest light festival, allows us to see Durham in a whole new light, illuminating its past and highlighting its creative future. The biennial festival transforms our historic city into an awe-inspiring nocturnal art trail and is set to be one of the highlights of Durham's 2019 events calendar, when it returns from November 14-17 for its tenth anniversary.
As part of our Milburngate Talks series, Lee McLaughlin, lead architect at Faulkner Brown, provides some beautiful insight into the thoughtful consideration that has gone into ensuring our 450,000 sq ft mixed-use development at Milburngate will serve as a magnificent architectural, economic and cultural addition to Durham.
