York House wins conference centre contract

York House Construction has been awarded a contract to build a 30,000 square foot conference centre in County Durham.

The £5 million project will produce one of the biggest conference centres in the north-east on the Newton Aycliffe Industrial Park for Xcel Holdings, and upon completion will offer state-of-the-art presentation equipment and a movable stage, in addition to 40 new jobs. The building will seat 1,200 and will be used for concerts, conferences and corporate events.

Andy Bruce, managing director of York House Construction, said: "This is going to be an immensely rewarding project. It is a complex build which will offer some fantastic facilities."

A separate exhibition hall will seat 250, and a variety of additional seminar rooms will take the lead from the main facility in terms of technical innovation on offer.

Yorkshire is keeping in time with London venues by developing progressively innovative corporate resources. According to yorkshirepost.co.uk the creative and digital output of North Yorkshire is set to expand by over 50 per cent within the next ten years.
