This Month in Premier Construction 26.7
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Construction.
In this month’s issue we take a look at The Interlock; we check out the Bobby Moore Academy; and we explore the National Veterans Memorial and Museum.
Taking 2 years and completed at the end of 2018, The Interlock is a 5 storey multipurpose building by Bureau de Change architects for developer HGG containing three flats, a café and a small gallery. On the busy crossroads of Riding House Street and Wells Street it is a needed, valued and refreshing build for the area with a bespoke brick façade.
The Interlock absorbs this history and responds by taking the proportions of the neighbouring 19th Century terrace, and recasting its brick façade to create a building of uncertain heritage – one that is simultaneously historic and contemporary, familiar yet foreign.
The Bobby Moore Academy Secondary School marks the completion of Penoyre & Prasad’s work for the David Ross Education Trust in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The Bobby Moore Academy Secondary School is a new 6FE secondary school for 1140 pupils on one of the smallest secondary school sites in London. Situated in the heart of the Olympic Park, it provides much-needed education and community facilities to support the growing local neighbourhood.
The first national institution dedicated to honouring U.S. veterans and celebrating their service recently opened the doors to its new home, designed by Allied Works Architecture.
The National Veterans Memorial and Museum (NVMM) is a civic and cultural institution that seeks to interweave the role of veterans and the act of service within a broader national context.
Located in downtown Columbus, Ohio, the new 53,000- square-foot building unites architecture and landscape in one gesture as it creates an iconic, new civic space to tell the story of veterans on an individual and collective level.
With all this and more, join us as we explore the impressive construction projects that continue to shape our landscape. Go well!
