A lot has been going on in the world of construction this past week. Many proposals have been made for new developments along with the on-going construction of existing ones. We are still seeing cases where developments are continuing to rise in value exceeding original figures. Here is a taste of what has been going on as of March 2020.
Bristol University Expansion
Planning for an £80m Library for Bristol University has been submitted to the council. This project is being designed by Schmidt Hammer Lassen, Hawkins/Brown and BuroHappold. The library is going to replace the current student accommodation that is currently on the campus.
Everton Football Stadium
This year, work will start on Everton’s proposed 52,000 seat stadium. The main contractor for this development is Laing O’Rourke. Goodison Park (the current stadium) will be redeveloped into homes offices and shops. The proposed new stadium will include a home end, steep stand for 13,000 fans and a steel and glass roof.
Canary Wharf, London
Canary Wharf Group is looking to introduce eight new buildings in the North Quay area. It could potentially offer around 950 homes to locals and a range of commercial uses within the area.
Blackfriars, Central London
Developer Native Land has been given the go ahead to continue with the second phase of its £1bn central London development. This development is located at Blackfriars in the City of London. It is known as the Bankside Yards project and has been split into two separate sites lying alongside the river Thames.
Silvertown Tunnel, London
The project value of Silvertown Tunnel has risen from £1bn to £1.2bn since the end of November. A contract award notice was published and shows that the value had risen by £200m compared to the original figure of £1bn which was given by Transport for London.
There are a range of exciting building and civil engineering projects underway in London and across the UK.
