The construction of the new £8million offices for the Department of Education in Darlington is now well under way with the Steel frame being completed ahead of programme.

Construction started in December 2013 with initial archaeological excavations finding the remains of a range of buildings including a 19th Century Poor House, a brewhouse, tithe barn and stables. Once these artefacts had been carefully collected and recorded they were taken to Durham University for further investigation to allow the construction of the new building to commence. The building, located on a strategic site within the Feethams area, will be set back from the River Skerne and, with the adjacent Grade 1 Listed St Cuthbert's Church and will define a new area of public realm on the fringe of the Town Centre.
