Stansted unveils plans for new £130m arrivals hall



London Stansted Airport has unveiled plans for a new £130m arrivals building. The proposed 34,000m2 building spans three levels and would be delivered inside the existing footprint of the airport located adjacent to the current terminal and the Radisson Blu Hotel.

It will include plans for a larger immigration and baggage reclaim area, new retail facilities and a public forecourt.

The new arrivals building will enable the current terminal building to be reconfigured and dedicated entirely to departing passengers.

Subject to the relevant planning consents and approvals, it is expected the arrivals building will take up to three years to complete with other improvements to the existing terminal due to be finished by 2022.

Stansted Airport’s CEO, Andrew Cowan, said: “Since MAG acquired the airport in early 2013, we have turned Stansted into one of the UK’s fastest growing airports.

“It has always been our vision to invest in its infrastructure to create the best experience for our growing number of passengers and airline customers and we have already invested over £150 million to update our terminal and satellite facilities.

They're fixed pieces of cladding, designed by Will Alsop's architecture firm. It's their largest UK scheme to date.

McAlpine early frontrunner for £600m Google HQ



Sir Robert McAlpine is understood to have emerged as an early frontrunner in the bid race to build a landmark building for Google in London.

The firm is bidding with Lendlease, Mace and Multiplex for the £600m project to build the 10-storey HQ at King’s Cross Goods Yard.

A source told the Enquirer: “It is still early in the assessment process but McAlpine looks to be leading the rest of the bidders.”

“Now it looks like the final decision will now be taken in the New Year.”

Google’s new building is designed by Heatherwick Studio and Bjarke Ingels Group and replaces previous plans that were suddenly withdrawn in 2015 for being too boring.

The new 650,000 sq ft complex will make up more than half of the company’s complete King Cross campus.

Presently it occupies one 380,000 sq ft development at 6 Pancras Square and is due to move into a second leased building, now being built by Carillion, in 2018.

BAM wins £25m West London multi-faith school

They shouldn't support the construction of any "faith" schools imho.
We live centuries after the Age of Enlightenment and education needs to be about real stuff, not fantasy stories wrapped as "facts". Just my stance here.

Bidding to start for £150m Luton Airport rail link



Prequalification of firms will start in February for £150m worth of construction work for the planned light railway system for Luton Airport.

The 2.2 km long guided mass rapid transit passenger system will run between two purpose-built stations, heading out from Stirling Place, close to Luton Airport Parkway station, to the airport terminal.

It will be broken down into two main packages Civils work worth up to £115m will include viaducts, embankments, cut and cover works and station platforms.

Some of the works will be within the airside sections of the airport.

The track, rolling stock and associated systems package will be subject to a separate contract worth up to £35m to be awarded concurrently.

The scheme forms part of an ambitious £1.5bn inward investment programme revealed by the council, which outlines a 20-year plan for major transformation of the town.
