From heritage projects involving buildings of national importance, to a dramatic construction boost which will raise the curtain on world-class facilities for young performing artists – and an imaginative scheme to create a dramatic new green space through a ‘root and branch’ transformation – this month’s Premier Construction keeps you bang up to the minute with all the hottest happenings in the building sector.
On the heritage front, we look in on the recent multi-million restoration of St Paul’s Cathedral, completed in time for the cathedral’s 300th anniversary and restoring the building inside and out for the first time in it’s entire history. We see how state of the art conservation techniques by a multitude of contractors over the 15 year life of the scheme have brought about a transformation that is nothing short of miraculous.
Hopping from one end of the country to the other, we discover how the roof of one of Dundee’s finest heritage buildings (comprising no less than 70 pitches) was restored in a challenging project which tested the project team’s skills to the limit.
Still in Scotland, but moving on to Glasgow, Premier Construction provides a snapshot of a £9.2 million project to breathe new life into the 133-year-old former Burgh Halls complex at the heart of Maryhill. The project will recapture the splendid historic beauty of this treasured building, and provide the local community with a host of modern facilities.
Changing the subject entirely, we see how an £18 million scheme is creating a superb new performing arts centre for aspiring young stars of the future in a project to create the Performance Hall Hub at……
And on the green front, we marvel at the difference made by a £2 million makeover at the Ladywell Fields Park in Lewisham, forming an exceptional new green space in the local area. New backwaters, wetlands, boardwalks and viewing platforms, steps and gently sloping banks have been added to an existing river, as well as a host of major new park facilities, creating a major new resource for the whole community to enjoy.
All this and much more besides awaits you in this our very latest edition – so make sure you’re in the know, this month, and every month – with Premier Construction!
