This Month in Channel Islands Construction Focus- Issue 3.7
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Construction: Channel Islands Construction Focus.
In this month’s issue we take a look at the shortlist for the Guernsey Design Awards; and we take a look at the exciting developments at Tamba Park.
Held every two years, the Guernsey Design Awards invite entries from a broad spectrum of work which is shortlisted and judged by a panel comprising professionals from architecture, planning, construction and the arts. This year, due to the quality of entries and the relevance within the Guernsey environment, a new category has been added, to recognise the ongoing heritage work on the Island.
In this month’s edition, as we await the results of these prestigious awards, we take a look at all of the shortlisted entries, from La Cherterie and The Mill to Cobo Community Centre, Horizons and more.
Meanwhile, set in beautiful scenery, Jersey’s newest attraction, Tamba Park, offers a range of attractions for people of all ages. The site was bought in late 2014 with the new owners starting to transform the once derelict park into something spectacular for families far and wide.
Michael Bee, General Manager at Tamba Park said: “The owner set up a charity in 2012 and wanted a sustainable business to support the charity, so we are a non-profit business and the idea behind it was that if anything would happen to him, his charity would be able to continue.”
Tamba Park is made up of a variety of different areas including an outdoor area comprising an African Sculpture Garden, large lake with micro boats and remote control boats, a dinosaur trail with 16 life-size animatronic dinosaurs, children’s adventure playground and much more.
With all this and more, look no further than Channel Islands Construction Focus for the latest awe-inspiring developments that continue to shape the architectural landscape.
