Graham wins starring role on £16.7m drama school



Graham Construction has landed a £16.7m contract to build the latest phase of The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama’s complex at Swiss Cottage in north London.

Work on the new North Block building will start by August with completion scheduled for 2018.

The works will extend the school’s teaching, rehearsal and performance spaces, and will include the addition of studios with a focus on training for film/ media and a new public, courtyard theatre.

Graham will construct a contiguous piled wall around the site perimeter and reinforced concrete lined walls will be built below ground level to form a double-storey basement, followed by the construction of an in-situ reinforced concrete frame for the six floors above ground.

The new facility will be traditionally-clad and painted stucco to integrate with the surrounding architecture of the Belsize Conservation Area.

Sustainable design solutions including photovoltaic panels and natural ventilation methods will be installed to reduce the environmental impact of the running of the building.

£60m Westminster City Hall refurb out to tender



Westminster City Council is pressing ahead with plans to refurbish its Victoria Street headquarters building in London.

The high-rise City Hall building overhaul is estimated to be worth £50m-£60m with the hunt now on for a building contractor to be selected by October this year.

Faithful & Gould has already been appointed for the multi-disciplinary professional team under an NEC3 form of contract prepared by Bond Dickinson.

The City Hall building, along with its base mechanical and electrical systems, date back to the 1960’s. As a result, the maintenance has become increasingly difficult and costly.

The planned building overhaul will include new lifts, full replacement of building services, new roof and windows with an extension to the 19th floor.

Crossrail work carried out at 19 outer London locations over bank holiday

Work to adapt railways in outer London, Berkshire and Essex for Crossrail was successfully completed over the spring bank holiday weekend.

Network Rail carried out 40,000 hours of work at 19 locations on 28-30 May, when the number of passengers was reduced because of the bank holiday.

Three-quarters of the £2.3bn programme, which will be called the Elizabeth Line in honour of the Queen, passes through outer London, Berkshire and Essex.

Matthew Steele, Crossrail programme director at Network Rail, said: “Once opened, the Elizabeth line will greatly improve the capacity of the transport network in London and beyond with new trains offering more frequent and more reliable services from Berkshire, Essex and the south east of London. I would like to thank passengers and our lineside neighbours for their patience over the bank holiday whilst we carried out these major works.”

At Shenfield station, nine new booms were laid and twelve foundations dug as part of work to upgrade the electrification equipment.

Station upgrades were carried out between Shenfield and London Liverpool Street, including platform extensions and improvements and progress towards step-free access.

Electrification work was also carried out on the line between Paddington and Reading, where more than 30 new masts were installed, as well as three wire runs and the foundations for 14 masts at Maidenhead.

Station works, including platform extensions and upgrades to accommodate overhead wires, were also carried out at Hayes & Harlington, Southall, West Ealing and Slough.

An old platform was demolished as part of the construction of the new station at Abbey Wood. At Stockley junction, 12 more concrete sections were lifted into place as part of the ramp of the new flyover.

New images of the remodelled stations along the Elizabeth Line were released last month.

GPE gears up for two more London starts despite Brexit fear

London developer Great Portland Estates is preparing to start two West End schemes within the next 18 months.

The new projects are being brought forward as GPE revealed it is now delivering its largest ever development programme of eleven projects, totalling nearly 1 m sq ft in this cycle.

But Toby Courtauld, chief executive, also warned of growing concern in the market about the impact of Brexit, and a prolonged political stalemate over EU membership, which could derail a market fundamentally set for growth.

Reporting strong annual results, Courtauld said the developer had lifted profits by over 9% in the year to the end of March, reaching £555m, with a record year for leasing.

He said demand remained strong for office and retail space with even the overheated residential sector still offering good returns for the right schemes.

“Global economic and political uncertainties, including the upcoming EU referendum, are affecting broader business confidence and investor appetite,” he warned.

“It is too early to tell what the impact on the London property market will be although an extended political stalemate as the consequences of the referendum result are worked out would be unhelpful.”

Courtald added: “Despite this more uncertain back drop, London’s commercial property market fundamentals remain supportive: London’s economy is growing, its workforce expanding and demand for quality office space remains robust.

“Whichever way this summer’s political drama unfolds, we are well positioned to take advantage of opportunities as they arise.”

Eight projects are presently in construction, principally focused on the regeneration of the east end of Oxford Street, and all due to complete in the next 24 months.

I noticed when searched that street on Google Maps "Great Eastern Street" it took me to another road in London. This road on in Google Maps with that tower is Great Eastern Rd. Very minor difference.

Generally 'street' is central, 'road' (UK) can be either.

I'll be honest, the last week or so I've felt like I've been scraping the london forum barrel a bit at times, to keep up a flow of updates, so today I went and photographed about 15 projects, and then chest's been on a photo-mission today as well apparently, and a couple of city tower forumers have posted numerous shots from their office windows, and suddenly I've got a veritable mountain of updates to sift...
