Construction UK Magazine

Over the past few years, we have seen a significant increase in environmental awareness and a growing interest in reducing our footprint. A range of interrelated mega-trends has slowly but surely changed the business environment and strategic thinking for many companies across all industry sectors. Companies must react to complex, and evolving demands for addressing key global environmental concerns and showcase how their ‘positive impact’ initiatives are reflected through their culture and business progress.

The competition saw Multiplex win the contract over three other teir one contractors to deliver six towers of thirteen to nineteen storeys offering 355,000 square feet residential space including 268 high-end apartments and 143,000 square feet of commercial and retail.

No.1 Palace Street

London property developer Northacre is now nearing completion on perhaps its grandest of projects in the capital. Ideally located beside St James' Park and opposite Buckingham Palace, No.1 Palace Street occupies a piece of the city's most desirable real estate. Seventy-two apartments are now available to buy in the historic site, whose royal affiliation can be traced back to 1860 when it hosted overflow guests of the royals as the Palace Hotel.
