Specialist fenestration engineers MagHansen helped to modernise Newcastle Central Station, by visually opening up the roofing structure, while maintaining high standards of safety and weather control. Structural glass assembly system, Thermestra, used 12mm thick toughened glass which connected to the steel rod rigging system by stainless steel spider castings to form an elegant minimalist facade. For safety and strength, the company only used glass heat soaked to DIN standard 18516.

Architects were York-based Brig Potts and Ives and the main contractor was John Mowlem.
