This Month in Premier Construction 26.8
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Construction.
In this month’s issue we take a look at Janet Nash House; we check out Lidl Magherafelt; and we explore The Royal College of Pathologists.
Set within rich green landscape on the outskirts of Durham, Janet Nash House is the new European IT Headquarters for global electrical business City Electrical Factors (CEF). The building combines a variety of working environments to create a rich office landscape of workplace settings. This has allowed the firm to consolidate all of its IT departments into one location, helping to improve both individual and team performance.
Shortlisted for the Northern Ireland RICS awards under the Commercial category, Lidl Magherafelt underwent a redevelopment that was completed last year by the Northern Irish construction firm, FORRME.
The Lidl first opened in 2004, and FORRME was contracted in 2017 to undertake the 5 month remodel under a tight programme. Now that it is open, the store boasts a new architectural design and spacious interior layout, meaning it can offer customers a greater shopping experience with the same great value. It effectively brings together a practical and customer led layout, with state of the art design and technological integration.
The Royal College of Pathologists has relocated to a new building designed by Bennetts Associates. The completion of the 4,500m2 building on Alie Street in East London marks the final step in the College’s move from a traditional Grade I listed building in St James to contemporary purpose-built premises.
The design of the new building addresses the college’s mission to advance the science and practice of pathology and to better serve its membership. The brief given to Bennetts Associates was to build a hybrid building reflecting the educational, social, workplace and residential uses of a Royal College.
With all this and more, join us as we explore the impressive construction projects that continue to shape our landscape. Go well!
