Morgan Sindall takes £15m Silicon Roundabout revamp

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...dabout-revamp/

Quote:
Transport for London has signed a £15m deal with Morgan Sindall to transform Old Street Roundabout on the northern fringe of the City.

The two-stage design and build contract is the first scheme to be commissioned under TfLís Civils Project Framework, which supports a £4bn roads modernisation programme in the Capital, delivering the enhancement and refurbishment of tunnels, bridges and other structures.

The Old Street Roundabout island will be removed to form a new peninsula-style junction, reintroducing two-way traffic movements and converting the existing roundabout into an open and accessible public space.

Much, much needed. Old Street Roundabout has to be one of the least-pleasant junctions in Inner London.

Agreed. But this design is not much better than whats there already is it? Surely the island should have been turned into a square....

February start for £70m Brentford FC stadium

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...tadium-scheme/

Quote:
Work is set to start in February on a new football stadium for Brentford FC in West London.

The Bees are set to leave Griffin Park and move to land off nearby Lionel Road to the proposed 17,250-seat stadium.

The new stadium projects forms part of a combined residential scheme being developed by Be Living in joint venture with the club.

The decision to start work on the stadium comes after planners at the London Borough of Hounslow approved amendments submitted for Brentford Community Stadium and 487 homes in surrounding residential blocks.

Around seven new residential buildings rising to 15 floors will be located on a ten-acre site on Lionel Road South, close to Kew Bridge.

The first phase of the residential element of the scheme has been redesigned to offer more apartments to rent and buy, designed to meet the housing needs of the local area.

£600m London Camden Goods Yard scheme approved

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...heme-approved/

Quote:
Masterplans have been approved for a near 600-home mixed-use scheme next to Londonís famous Camden Market on Chalk Farm Road.

The scheme is being brought forward by Barratt London in joint venture with land owner Morrisons supermarket and will see the homes delivered across eight buildings alongside 300,000 sq ft of shopping space and a small amount of office space for business start-ups.

The existing Morrisons supermarket and petrol filling station on the site will be demolished and replaced as part of the 3.3ha redevelopment plan.

The whole of the supermarket site will be heated by a communal heating system, with the main gas-fired heating plant located in a dedicated Energy Centre located in the undercroft of Block A.

Heathrow cost of third runway cut by £2.5bn

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-42399840

Quote:
Heathrow Airport has cut back its expansion costs by £2.5bn in new proposals for a third runway. The cut, which reduces the total cost to £14bn, comes from reducing space and breaking building work into stages.

Existing terminals could be expanded to hold an extra 16.5m passengers instead of a standalone terminal for the extra runway.

Various money-saving options will be put to the public as part of a 10-week consultation starting in the new year.

A new runway would increase Heathrow's capacity from 85.5m passengers to 130m.
