Ten Years at The Cube
Law firm Sintons is celebrating the tenth anniversary of moving into its iconic Newcastle home.
In February 2004, Sintons moved to The Cube after outgrowing its previous home in Osborne Terrace in Jesmond.
In the ten years since that time, the firm has more than doubled in size, with 250 people now working in its four-storey building.
Sintons moved to The Cube on its completion in early 2004, when it was the only new development in the vicinity. Since that time, the area has seen extensive development, with Newcastle University Business School and the Sandman Hotel being built, as well as the ongoing work on Newcastle Science City.
The law firm, which has operated across the North East for over 100 years, prides itself on offering a personal service and a welcoming environment for staff and clients alike. The Cube, with its modern design and open plan format, was chosen to reflect the ethos of the firm.
Alan Dawson, Chairman of Sintons, said: “At the time we committed to moving into The Cube, it was a big decision ten years ago, this was not the usual type of premises a law firm would have. We were one of the first businesses of our type to move into modern, open plan premises, and many probably raised their eyebrows, but most law firms now operate out of premises of a similar layout.
“In the ten years since, we have grown significantly, and have more than doubled the number of people who work here from having a lot of room to expand when we first moved in, we are now almost at capacity!
“This was a fantastic move for us, to what is now a really vibrant part of the city. We look forward to many more successful years here.”
