This Month in Premier Construction 24.6
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Construction magazine.
In this month’s edition, we take a look at Pochard Fishing Lodge; we cast our eye over the Westfield London Expansion project; and we highlight a collection of NHBC Award-winning projects, including Oak Country Manor.
A distinctive project that saw the construction of a new clubhouse on the shore of Pochard Lake Fishery has been recognised at the recent LABC Building Excellence Awards. The uniquely styled Pochard Fishing Lodge replaced an existing structure that had stood on the site since the 1960s. Completed in June last year, the new lodge has already proved a popular addition with members, having seamlessly slotted into the surrounding landscape.
Meanwhile, Westfield London is currently undergoing a dramatic extension programme to consolidate Westfield London’s position as a world-leading retailer and entertainment destination. The construction of the £600 million retail expansion began in 2015 and is targeted to launch in March 2018. The extension, which will bring a 230,000 sq.ft. flagship John Lewis store to West London will continue Westfield London’s transformative impact on the local area.
And finally, scooping yet another NHBC Quality Award for his site and his team at Oak Country Manor, Co. Londonderry, is multi-award winning Taggart Homes site manager John Logue, who has now won an impressive set of 10 Quality Awards and three Seals of Excellence. John, who puts his success down to years of experience, together with the hard work and excellent standards achieved by his associate managers, site team and subcontractors at Oak Country Manor, said: “It was great for us to get recognition for doing a good job. I am just a cog in the wheel and winning this award was largely down to the efforts of the great team on site – from management through to contractors and subcontractors alike.”
With all this and more, join us as we explore the impressive construction projects that continue to shape our landscape.
