It's certainly overdue, Palace should have no problems filling it in the Premier League.

I fear quite poorly. That dark green colour is hideous, and the design is 2nd-rate and provincial. Croydon isn't going anywhere good architecturally. It will join Saffron Square in London's worst concentration of recent architecture. Thankfully Croydon's on the southern fringe of the metropolis, so the blight is localised.

Why is dark green hideous? What about this building's dark green facade, which everyone says is beautiful?

That's a nicer more vibrant green and the building is better designed and the green works well with that goldy colour going by the pic in the link.

The Crydon building has a more duller green. I will know more if I like it once it's built.

Morgan Sindall BeMo tie-up wins £20m Tube train depot

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...e-train-depot/

Quote:
London Underground has picked a joint venture between Morgan Sindall and BeMo Tunnelling to deliver a £20m Tube train workshop at its existing Acton Works depot in West London.

The design and build project was awarded following a mini-competition using LUís Civils and Tunnelling Works framework, which over eight years is worth up to £350m.

The 18-month Train Modification Unit project will involve building a 160m long train maintenance building, incorporating four pitted rail tracks and an accommodation block providing welfare and office facilities for 100 staff.

The project also includes the installation of new tracks and turn outs that will connect into London Undergroundís existing network.
