£50m concrete deck race for London City Airport



London City Airport is looking for a contractor to build a vast piled concrete deck over a section of the Royal Docks as a base for its £350m expansion plan.

The 7.5 hectare concrete deck over the King George V dock will be supported by over 1,000 piles each extending 10m into the dock bed and 10m up to just above the water line.

This will provide the extra space to build a three storey extended passenger pier to the east of the existing terminal and extra stand and taxiway space for larger jets.

Construction of the new apron will follow a similar structural design to the existing smaller scale eastern apron deck, with a suspended concrete deck consisting of pre-cast reinforced concrete planks with an in-situ topping spanning onto precast beams and the original dock wall.

What's the name of the building that we can see in the right corner of the picture, the one with glassy angles. (in the same picture where we can see the twin towers of Hoola).

You're not wrong. I like the structure and its roof. Thank you.

London - World's most powerful city for 5th year running

The UK capital has been named the world’s most powerful city for the fifth year in a row, beating the likes of New York, Paris, and Tokyo to the top spot.

The 2016 Global Power City Index, released today by Japan’s Mori Memorial Foundation, ranked London as the top city yet again, picking up on the capital’s top businesses, strong cultural offering, and global transport links.

Agree, especially when it isn't all-glass cladding.

Mace tops September contracts league with London win



Mace has taken pole position in the September contracts league after securing the £450m One Crown Place project in London for Malaysian investor Alloy.

According to information specialist Glenigan, the contract catapulted Mace to pole position ahead of Wates, which secured second place with a £70m residential project win at Hoxton Towers for Anthology.

BAM jumped to the top of the annualised rolling league after Bouygues slipped from top position after its £1bn Battersea Power Station dropped out of the 12 months table.

Airports expansion decision to be made next week

[IMG]http://ichef.bbci.co.uk/news/660/cpsprodpb/FE3E/production/_91968056_***********-615154168.jpg[/IMG]

The government will next week announce its decision on whether to favour expanding either Heathrow or Gatwick airport, after decades of delays.

Unusually, the decision will not be taken by the full cabinet but by a sub-committee, chaired by Theresa May.

MPs will not get to vote on the decision for at least another year. Some ministers will be allowed to speak out against it for a limited period in a move being seen as evidence a third runway at Heathrow will be backed.

Expanding Heathrow is strongly opposed by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, and Education Secretary Justine Greening. Allowing ministers to speak out could avert the possibility of resignations from cabinet.

In a letter, Prime Minister Theresa May has told cabinet colleagues that once a decision has been taken by the airports sub-committee on the preferred scheme it will then be subject to a "full and fair public consultation" before a final decision is put before the Commons in the winter of 2017-18.

Number 10 would not comment as to whether MPs would be able to vote freely on the matter.

A Heathrow spokesperson said it was "the expected and appropriate political process" - a view echoed also by Gatwick.
