British Land submits latest Broadgate revamp plan

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...e-revamp-plan/



Quote:
Developer British Land has submitted plans for the latest revamp project at its Broadgate development in London’s Square Mile.

The plans for 135 Broadgate will see existing office space revamped when tenant RBS vacates the building along with the retail space upped from 8,000 sq ft to 38,000 sq ft.

Working with Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, GIC, the planning application to the City of London is to extensively refurbish the 340,000 square feet building by Liverpool Street Station while retaining the overall square footage.

What's the plan here? Close the existing stadium and then move games over to the new stadium, meanwhile demolish the old stadium in order to finish the other segment of the new stadium?

Clever

VDB; The plan is for Spurs to move to Wembley for a season or so to complete the stadium. However Levy, the bald overlord of the Lane, is trying to ensure Spurs stay at their traditional home for as long as possible. Probably because their record at Wembley is atrocious.
Spurs soon to have the biggest club ground in North London though #wengerout

That was the original plan with the old design.

The new design necessitates that Spurs relocate for a season. To Wembley. Partly because they have to build and install a complex, three part, two direction retractable pitch and partly because the new design has a cable net roof - which requires the roof to be built in one go rather than in stages.

It's shaping up to be an impressive facility.

I look forward to future heated Emirates Stadium v NWHL v New Stamford Bridge arguments one they're complete

New WHL should be better than the Emirates in all respects, simply because it's 11 years newer, by the same architect and the lessons from that stadium (good and bad) have been taken on board and applied. Slightly bigger capacity, more modern technologies used throughout, retractable pitch for multi-use, stands steeper and closer to the pitch (much closer behind the goals), dedicated home end with no 'corporate ring', corporate facilities more geared towards modern trends (fewer 'boxes', more open entertaining areas, skylounges, open atriums etc). New WHL also hasn't had to adhere to the strict height limits imposed on the Emirates by the council which made it flatter and less imposing than a stadium of that capacity ought to be. It should be a clear win across the board for the newer Populous stadium vs the older Populous stadium.

New WHL vs New Stamford Bridge should provide a more interesting debate.

As a Chelsea fan, I cannot say positive things about anything but the new Stamford Bridge.

(But seriously, new White Hart Lane looks great.)

The design for Chelsea's stadium is super nice if that ever happens.

Heathrow plans offsite revolution for infrastructure construction

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...tructure-work/

Quote:
Heathrow bosses are planning to use its £16bn airport expansion project to “revolutionise” the way contractors build major infrastructure.
Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye confirmed a major push to support more off-site construction.


And the hunt has now begun for four UK sites to host new off-site logistics hubs which will help deliver expansion plans and drive growth across the country.

The new logistics hubs will pre-assemble components for the expanded airport before transporting them in consolidated loads to Heathrow.

Off-site construction has enjoyed success in the construction of homes but has had a limited role to date supporting major infrastructure projects.

Holland-Kaye said: “We want to use Heathrow expansion to not only upgrade Britain’s infrastructure, but cultivate a new world-leading sector and drive growth across the whole country.

Agreed with respect to the Emirates.

I personally think it's great that this city will see two new stadia that are so architecturally different, outside and in.
