Prater nets £8m roofing deal at Wimbledon No. 1 Court



Specialist envelope contractor Prater has won an £8m roofing and cladding deal at the redevelopment of No.1 Court at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London – home of the Wimbledon Championships.

Main contractor Sir Robert McAlpine appointed Prater for the £70m project which will increase the court’s capacity from 11,500 to 12,400.

Prater will start on site in January installing roofing and cladding for the venue’s new bowl structure.

The completion of Prater’s works will facilitate the later installation of a retractable roof to cover the court during adverse weather.

Kevin Smith, Sales Director at Prater said: “We are delighted to continue our excellent working relationship with Sir Robert McAlpine, having worked closely on previous projects at the Emirates Stadium and the Olympic Stadium.

GRAHAM lands £150m Barnet major works deal

The London Borough of Barnet has appointed GRAHAM Construction as its partner for £150m of major works over the next five years.

The deal has an option to extend to seven years and will include the enhancement of education, community, leisure and operational assets across the borough.

GRAHAM will now deliver both improvements and new build works as part of the council’s Capital Projects pipeline.

The first jobs will be two already approved leisure centre schemes and school developments.

Councillor Richard Cornelius, Leader of Barnet Council, said: “Barnet has a good track record of building major projects on time and on budget and this new partnership with Graham provides us further opportunity to deliver key buildings which will serve our residents for many years to come.”

Tunnelling works start on London’s Northern line extension

Two permanent shafts have been dug close to Kennington Underground station from which the tunnelling programme has set off.

Although TBMs will be used to construct much of the extension, tracked excavators supplied by Schaeff are being used initially to excavate the tunnels around the Kennington loop, where the new line meets the existing railway.

Built by NFM Technologies, the TBMs are currently being transported to London and are expected to be in the ground early next year.

Tech sector drives demand for London's offices post-referendum



The tech sector is driving a return to health for the commercial property sector in central London.

According to Knight Frank, there was demand for 9.5m square feet (sq ft) of office space in central London between June and September. This is ahead of the long-term quarterly average of 7.5m sq ft.

This demand is largely coming from the tech sector, Knight Frank said, with Spotify, Expedia and Deliveroo all looking for offices.

In the third quarter, Apple's pre-let of space in the Battersea Power Station boosted the commercial property sector. The tech giant will be moving to its new office space in 2021, relocating 1,400 employees.

James Roberts, chief economist at Knight Frank, said: "Over the past five years London has been reweighting its economy away from finance and towards technology and innovation, which will pay dividends as we move towards Brexit.

"Given the big tech names currently looking for office space in London, and the huge deal last month from Apple, it is apparent that Brexit has had little more than a road-bump effect on the capital's burgeoning technology sector."
