The Eco Centre was designed and built by Groundwork South Tyneside and Newcastle (STAN) and opened in 1996. The building was a pioneering venture to demonstrate renewable technologies and sustainable design.

Today the Eco Centre remains one of Europe's most sustainable buildings.  It is Groundwork South Tyneside and Newcastle’s Trust Headquarters, in addition to being a professional Business Centre.

The Patterson and MacFarlane rooms are available for public hire and our expert team provide hospitality services, including buffet lunches if required. The Patterson Room is renowned as an excellent training venue and is used regularly by external companies and the various Groundwork STAN teams.

The beautifully airy atrium, complete with internal water feature, provides a calm environment for meeting and greeting visitors and networking with other tenants. 

The wind turbine in our car park has become a well-known local landmark and provides free electricity for all  Eco Centre users.
