This Month in Premier Construction 25.4
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Construction magazine.
In this month’s edition, we unveil Sapphire Ice & Leisure in Romford; we highlight the arrival of the new Kuala Lumpur Sports City (KLSC) in Asia; and we take a look at ‘the world’s greenest terminal’ at Oslo Airport.
Sapphire Ice & Leisure, a £28m leisure centre has officially opened its doors in Romford. The new facility has been constructed by Willmott Dixon and forms a major part of Havering Council’s multi-million-pound investment to improve sports and fitness facilities in the borough. The centre, offers a wealth of facilities aimed at getting people in the borough to improve their health and wellbeing through activity.
Meanwhile, the new Kuala Lumpur Sports City (KLSC), formerly known as Buki Jalil National Sports Complex, is set to be one of the most iconic and distinctive international sporting and entertainment centres in Asia. As a redeveloped and fully-integrated sports hub, KLSC is fully compliant with local and international standards and consists of new world-class infrastructures on par with the most renowned world-class sports and entertainment centres.
And finally, designed by Oslo-based practice Nordic-Office of Architecture, with assistance by NSW, a new 115,000 sqm terminal at Oslo Airport is catching the eyes of passengers, as well as industry insiders. Viewed as the world’s greenest terminal, the building’s environmentally friendly potential was recently recognised with a WAN Award nomination in the ‘Sustainable Buildings 2017’ category. The design, which uses snow as a coolant, has also achieved the world’s first BREEAM ‘Excellent’ sustainability rating for an airport building. In this issue, we take a look inside the terminal, which is just one of a number of WAN Award-nominated projects to feature this month.
With all this and more, join us as we explore the impressive construction projects that continue to shape our landscape.
