Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Construction magazine.
In this month’s edition, we take a look at two new restaurants for ASK Italian and we catch up with the restoration of Lincoln Castle.
Inspired by all things Italian – especially the food – ASK Italian is a collection of restaurants serving up authentic, delicious cuisine across key locations throughout the UK. With more than a hundred restaurants in its portfolio, ASK Italian is a leading name in the high street dining sector, with a profile which continues to rise. Keen to keep the brand at the forefront of the industry, ASK Italian continues to introduce new restaurants into its collection, taking its current total of venues up to 111. ASK Italian’s latest additions, ASK Italian Swindon – located within the town’s Regent Circus complex – and ASK Italian Maidstone – situated on Earl Street – offer a dash of flavour, a big dose of style and lashings of great service. In this month’s edition we catch up with ASK Italian’s Operations Director, Phil Boyd, to find out more about the new sites.
Meanwhile, due to be completed this year, Lincoln Castle Revealed is an ambitious multi-million pound restoration of Lincoln Castle – home to the Magna Carta. It is intended that the project, being carried out for Lincolnshire Council, will be completed in time to celebrate Magna Carta’s 800th anniversary this year. Key elements of the scheme are the refurbishment and conservation of the Georgian and Victorian Prison buildings within Lincoln Castle; the construction of a climate controlled subterranean pod to display Magna Carta and the Charter of the Forest; and the construction of a Heritage Skills Centre. These and other elements of the project are being carried out by main contractors Robert Woodhead, working alongside architects Arrol & Snell.
And finally, following on from our coverage last month, once again we take a look at some of the projects which have been shortlisted in this year’s Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Awards, including Ravenhill Rugby Club, Omagh Leisure Centre and Seafarers Way.
With all this and more, join us as we explore the impressive construction projects that continue to shape our landscape.
