The UoN Services Limited acquires the lease of section of the ground floor of University House (formerly NESCA House) on the corner of King & Auckland Streets, Newcastle and John Broughton, CEO of the Union, suggests that Watt Space relocates to the marble entrance halls within the building. The student committee of Mary-anne Taylor, Glyn Thomas and David Love and Director Pippa Robinson are much more attracted to the old NESCA printery with its loading dock, pit and storage areas and suggest plans for the refurbishment of this area into 5 separate gallery spaces. These are developed and carried out by the Union over several months.
Watt Space has also acquired an office on campus, in the gymnasium building.
