Architectural excellence is high on the agenda this month as Premier Construction takes a look at this year’s crop of RIBA award winners
These include an Eco friendly Woodland Trust HQ, a striking new village hall at Raasay, Scotland, an innovative extension to a Victorian terraced house in London, Bethnal Green’s town hall reborn as a luxury hotel, a home designed by an architect for his own family, a London adventure playground and, surprisingly, two new housing developments – one in Southwark and the other near Dunoon – just to name a few.
Another highlight in this issue is Premier Construction’s exclusive interview with leading Liberal Democrat figure and media personality Lembit Opik, who commends the recently completed project to refurbish and transform Condover Hall – one of Britain’s most impressive stately homes – into a new Educational Centre in Shrewsbury. He hails the project at “A success story right from the start.”
Moving from Shrewsbury to London, we call in to take a look at the construction progress of the prestigious new £70 million Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, set to redefine luxury accommodation and conferencing facilities within the famous Tower Bridge district.
Meanwhile, at the other end of the country, we zoom in on a team of construction high fliers who are taking Aberdeen airport to a completely new level with the construction of a £10 million extension to the main runway.
And that’s just a taste of things to come – read on and find out more!
Roma Publications Ltd would like to apologise for an error on page 46 in issue 16-3 of Premier Construction. The editorial on Arun District Council Decent Homes project should have highlighted R Benson Property Maintenance Ltd as main contractors on this project after Connaught Construction, originally appointed as main contractors, went into administration.
