Tolent has transformed the former Vaux Brewery with the construction of The Beam as well-as infrastructure and a new public square.

In the heart of the North East and within easy reach of Durham, South Tyneside, Gateshead, Newcastle and Teesside, this flagship project offers an opportunity for ambitious businesses to be at the heart of Sunderland’s transformation.

The Beam provides flexible office space in the centre of an emerging cluster, creating links and opportunities for business both big and small.

The Beam serves up more than 59,000 sq ft of office and leisure space, extending the footprint of the city centre  towards the riverside, connected by Keel Square. The Beam overlooks the river Wear and accommodates businesses requiring contemporary working environments, from as little as 2,500 sq ft up to 61,670 sq ft.

The building’s facilities include: a manned reception, feature courtyard common area, fully accessed raised floors, LED lighting, exposed ceilings and natural ventilation, lifts, shower and changing facilities, bicycle stores and offsite car parking.

The impressive building that marks the start of the creation of a vibrant new district in the city centre of Sunderland. The contract was awarded following our work on a number of key schemes to regenerate the city of Sunderland, including Beacon of Light, Hilton Garden Inn, the Echo Building and Doxford Park.

"We are delighted to have found a partner in Tolent that we absolutely know can deliver this project to the highest possible standard. The Beam is an iconic building and makes an incredible impact on the skyline in Sunderland. We are pleased that, after a pause, work resumed on site to deliver this ground-breaking building."
