Sustainable Multi-Storey Communities

Welcome to our research website. 

The Sustainable Multi-Storey (SMS) research project is a collaborative research project in which we are researching how electricity, gas, water, housing, internet and other services are being provided to multi-storey communities in Newcastle and how this could be improved and made more sustainable.  

We are doing this because tall residential buildings have not usually been the focus of the government's attempts to make UK housing and utility services more sustainable.  

You can contribute to the research by completing our survey which you can access by clicking here. If you live in one of the following Your Homes Newcastle buildings we would really love to hear from you:

  • Lort House
  • Pandon Court
  • King Charles Tower
  • Molineux Court
  • Grafton House

To get involved please look out for our posters around the buildings and complete the survey. For more  information please get in touch with the team:
