This Month in Premier Construction 25.1
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Construction magazine.
In this month’s edition, we take a look at the new European headquarters for Bloomberg; we cast our eyes over The Glassworks; and we check in at the Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa.
Bloomberg unveiled its new European headquarters on Tuesday 24th October at an event hosted by its founder Michael R. Bloomberg in the company of Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London and the building’s architect Lord Foster, Founder and Executive Chairman of Foster + Partners. Located in the heart of the City of London, it is the first wholly owned and designed Bloomberg building in the world. Designed to facilitate collaboration and fuel innovation, it will bring Bloomberg’s 4,000 London-based employees under one roof for the first time. The building responds to its historic context, yet is uniquely of its place and time. It is a true exemplar of sustainable development, with a BREEAM Outstanding rating and the highest design-stage BREEAM score ever achieved by any major office development in the world.
Meanwhile, a six-storey student accommodation development in the heart of Leeds has welcomed its first residents. The Glassworks has been brought to the market by award-winning luxury student living brand IconInc and features 150 extravagant and luxurious apartments. Each apartment at The Glassworks includes plush 1,000 pocket sprung double or king size beds, en-suite bathrooms, flat screen smart TVs, high-speed Wi-Fi and all-inclusive utility bills.
And finally, bringing a touch of luxury and glamour to Southampton’s Ocean Village Marina, Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa is a striking new waterfront venue. With its super-yacht inspired design, the hotel officially opened in November in 2017. The latest addition to the Harbour Hotels collection, the 85 bedroom hotel combines a stunning, contemporary interior design with the group’s award-winning restaurant and spa brands. The hotel boasts three unique dining experiences, Southampton’s first destination rooftop bar, a luxury spa and health club, private cinema, state-of-the-art meetings and events facilities and breath-taking views of the marina.
With all this and more, join us as we explore the impressive construction projects that continue to shape our landscape.
