TGA marks milestone with move

Monday 7 January 2013 5:00

TGA Consulting Engineers has celebrated its 50th Anniversary by completing a move to new premises at the Rivergreen Centre in Durham.

The company moved from Abbeywood Business Park in Durham.

TGA employs 26 engineering staff at its North East base and is currently working on design projects at Durham Cathedral, Durham University Business School and the Hitachi Rail Plant in Newton Aycliffe.

They have recently completed work on the £26m Institute of Transplantation development at the Freeman Hospital site in Newcastle.

Mike Waugh, director at TGA Consulting Engineers, said: “We decided to relocate the business because we wanted modern offices that are more than just a place for our employees to come to work. Creating the right environment results in happier, more productive staff and that is exactly what we have found since moving to the Rivergreen Centre.

“Rivergreen is a perfect fit for us because it complements our line of work. We work with teams that design modern and inspiring buildings and now we occupy one as well. Our clients have commented on our new workplace when they visit us.

"The impression that they get when they arrive was reason behind our decision to base ourselves here. We wanted to be somewhere with a wow factor.’’
