Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Construction magazine.
This month we pay a visit to PipsDish; we venture a little closer to home to celebrate the award-winning Number One Riverside building; and we profile Redpath Construction.
Starting life as a pop-up restaurant in Islington in 2011, PipsDish now has two sites, one in Hoxton and the second, and most recent, in Covent Garden. PipsDish Covent Garden opened its doors in October 2013, has 28 covers and serves good old fashioned home cooking. Maintaining a no-menu, you-eat-what-you’re-given approach, PipsDish serves up different dishes every day, meaning you never quite know what you’re going to get!
Meanwhile, Number One Riverside is a state-of-the-art civic building, situated in the heart of Rochdale. Since the building opened it has received fantastic feedback, and recently picked up two prestigious awards – the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce Building of the Year Award 2013 and the Concrete Society Award’s Best Mixed Use Building 2013.
Speaking to Premier Construction about the recent recognition, Mark Widdup, Director of Economy and Environment for Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council, said:
“Getting awards like these are a positive achievement as it is great recognition for the borough and demonstrates we can deliver high quality design alongside a building that the people of Rochdale can be proud of.”
And finally, formed in 2008, in what was largely a difficult time for many businesses around the world, Redpath Construction is a contractor undertaking all aspects of work, from refurbishments and fit-out schemes through to conservation projects. The company draws its strength from a team of highly experienced professionals, bringing more than 25 years’ of industry know-how to the forefront of everything they do.
Whilst other companies have experienced uncertainty over the past five years, Redpath Construction has bucked the trend by continuing to go from strength to strength and was announced the third fastest growing company in Scotland by the Fast 50 Scotland in February 2013. The company delivers schemes in a diverse array of sectors, from retail, industrial and healthcare to commercial, education and residential.
With all this and more, join us as we delve into the impressive projects that continue to shape our landscape.
