BAM tipped for London City Uni law school

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...ni-law-school/



Quote:
BAM Construct is tipped to take a £30m project to build a new law school for City University in London.

The scheme has been design by Wilkinson Eyre architects and will be built at Sebastian Street near the City University Islington campus.

The single stage design and build tender is being hotly contested with Kier, Wates, and Willmott Dixon among the firms to have chased the project.

But sources have told the Enquirer that Bam is now in prime position to secure the project.

City University plans to retain and refurbish two existing buildings as well as fund a new four-storey brick building and new seven-storey glazed building as a focal point for the the law school complex.

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

Quote:
Taylor Wimpey has been selected as preferred bidder to redevelop two neighbouring housing estates in Battersea with over 2,000 homes.

The vast scheme is being promoted as the flagship project in the Government’s crusade to bulldoze and rebuild the country’s worst sink estates.

The £1bn Winstanley and York Road scheme will regenerate a 32 acre site creating a new better-designed mixed-use neighbourhood of around 2,000 homes with new retail, leisure, community and office space.

What i appreciate in London is it brings us Singapore,Toronto,Chicago,Sydney in Europe.
If an extra european from those cities comes there he won't be disoriented and will feel like at home.
If an european comes there he will quit for minutes Europe and will feel like in other continent!
Only London do that in Europe! (perhaps Rotterdam)

Lendlease confirmed for Google HQ

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...for-google-hq/

Quote:
Internet giant Google has confirmed the selection of Lendlease to deliver its new headquarters building at King’s Cross in London.

Lendlease beat shortlisted bid rival Sir Robert McAlpine to the shell and core project, which is expected to cost around £350m to deliver.

The Google HQ building, designed by Heatherwick Studios and BIG, in collaboration with BDP, will be home to 4,000 Googlers on completion.

Joe Borrett, Google’s EMEA Director of Real Estate and Construction, said: “Lendlease emerged from a rigorous selection process as the best choice as our construction partner at King’s Cross because we felt it shared many of our own values – a desire to challenge industry norms, a focus on innovation, and a highly collaborative approach.”

China's CC Land buys London skyscraper for 1.15 billion pounds

http://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-bri...-idUKKBN16847G



Quote:
CC Land Holdings Ltd , a firm run by Chinese property magnate Cheung Chung-kiu, has agreed to pay 1.15 billion pounds to buy London's "Cheesegrater" skyscraper, owners British Land and Oxford Properties said on Wednesday.

The sale of the Leadenhall Building, known as the Cheesegrater because of its wedge shape, will be slightly dilutive to British Land's earnings per share but accretive to its net asset value per share, the property company said.

British Land and Oxford Properties each own 50 percent of the building. Oxford Properties invests in real estate for one of Canada's largest pension plans.

Green light for £500m North London incinerator

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...n-incinerator/



Quote:
The Government has granted development consent for a £500m energy from waste scheme to replace an existing facility at Edmonton EcoPark in North London.

Known as the North London Heat and Power Project, the development will replace the EcoPark’s existing energy from waste plant, which has operated for around 45 years but comes to the end of its life in 2025.

Following the development of the delivery strategy, construction preparation work could start in 2019.

The existing plant would be decommissioned and demolished once the new facility is up and running by 2028.

It will have the capacity to treat up to 700,000 tonnes of waste a year from households in the seven surrounding boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest.

London mayor approves Chelsea’s £500m stadium

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...-500m-stadium/



Quote:
London Mayor Sadiq Khan has given the nod to Chelsea Football Club’s plans for a £500m stadium on the site of their existing Stamford Bridge ground.

Plans for the new stadium will see Chelsea’s match-day capacity increase from 41,600 to 60,000 and will include the construction of an elevated walkway over the nearby District Line, linking the stadium to Fulham Broadway station.

Chelsea will now begin looking for a contractor, with Multiplex, Mace and Sir Robert McAlpine tipped to be interested.

Khan’s decision further builds on his support for London football, including his move to give the green light to a new stadium for AFC Wimbledon, which sees the ‘Dons’ set to return to their Plough Lane home nearly three decades after leaving it in 1991.

Mayor green lights two refused London housing schemes

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...using-schemes/



Quote:
London mayor Sadiq Khan has approved two major housing projects previously refused planning by local borough councils.

His decision to call in and then approve the schemes after they were altered to increase the affordable housing element means construction can proceed on nearly 700 homes.

Haringey Council had rejected an application for up to 505 homes, including a 21-storey tower at Hale Wharf in Tottenham, over concerns that it would be too tall and would adversely impact Green Belt land.

The Allies and Morrison designed scheme for joint developer Muse and the Canal and River Trust will now start first phase piling this summer.
