About the event

We are working with Darlington Borough Council to deliver its cutting-edge £35m Railway Heritage Quarter – transforming the Darlington Railway museum into a cutting-edge tourist attraction!

Procured via the Scape framework, the project will transform the Head of Steam railway museum site off North Road, which includes the Goods Shed and Carriage works, into a tourist attraction that will attract visitors from across the UK and overseas.


Whether you are thinking about a new career or just curious to see how the buildings and structures in your community are constructed – book your place on one of our site visits to find out more.

This site visit will include a safety briefing followed by a tour of the site. During the tour the team will tell you a bit about the project and answer any questions you have.
