FORRME completes £2m Transport Hub & Civic Square Northern Ireland-based construction company FORRME has transformed a former Belfast greenfield site into a brand new transport hub as part of a wider regeneration masterplan.
Construction UK Magazine ensures you reach current and new contacts within the construction industry.
The Colin Connect Transport Hub and Civic Square now provides facilities for the local community as well as the infrastructure to facilitate the much-anticipated Belfast Rapid Transport (BRT) system. With a project value circa £2m, the transport hub provides an interface between the existing Metro feeder services alongside the new BRT system to improve links to the City Centre while ensuring the surrounding community is highly accessible by bus. Key features of the transport hub project include its complex reinforced concrete structure, including a curved structural concrete roof deck. Externally, the building is finished in natural stone cladding, whilst internally, it features a striking pigmented board-marked concrete finish. The new transport hub houses a main concourse, lobby, waiting area, office space and bathroom facilities for the public. The civic square, designed to host activities throughout the year, is complimented by an amphitheatre and cycle parking. Full completion of the Colin Town Centre masterplan is due to take place in 2027, with additional projects including a mixed-use town centre development coalesced around the civic square including leisure facilities a new pedestrian / cycle link as well as a new amalgamated primary school.

Istanbul’s Futuristic Supertall TV and Radio Tower releases updated images and more details
THE TIMBER frame at Nottingham’s newest student accommodation, The Nest, is now taking shape onsite, with the view to create 57 new flats by the end of the year.
Turkish practice Melike Altınışık Architects have revealed more details and the construction photos of Istanbul’s futuristic 369 meter-tall Çamlıca TV and Radio Tower photographed by NAARO, London-based architectural photography studio.
The £5 million scheme, located at Derby Road, will feature 57 luxury, purposebuilt student studios and a ground floor commercial space.
Istanbul’s futuristic 369m meter-tall new telecommunication tower seeks a sense of motion and rhythm within its silhouette that changes when viewed from different directions around Istanbul. Its architectural formations combine elegance and beauty with math and geometry, whose innovative concept allows inhabitable spaces to be attached to the whole of the tower’s core. The project hopes to symbolize the growth of the megacity of Istanbul.
Wayne Oakes, director at Dice – the multidisciplinary engineering consultancy, which has been working on the project since its inception last year and delivered civil and structural design services - said: “The Nest is a bespoke, student accommodation which has been designed with international students in mind – incorporating the latest in studio design, great communal facilities and all in an amazing location, close to the city centre.”
The telecommunication tower will replace several drab structures currently in use and will combine an estimated 125 broadcasting transmitters in one structure and it will house two-story 360 view restaurant and observation deck overlooking views of Istanbul, from Asia to Europe. There will be also a public foyer, cafe, exhibition and mediatec areas inside the podium which is transformed by the existing park walkway in Küçük Çamlıca Grove. The Panorama Elevators which rising on both sides of the building are architectural elements that feed and divide the monolithic body. Visitors will experience a vertical travel along the 180 meters towards the historical peninsula on the one side, Black Sea Coasts on the other side. They will be able to watch Istanbul from the observation and restaurant ﬂoors where located 400m above sea level. While wind testing was employed to confirm the monumental structure’s overall stability, it was also used to develop the unique facade design and

optimize how the load of the building envelope would act on the concrete core. The engineered facade not only provides structural optimization but allows for inhabitable space to radiate around the tower’s central concrete core. In this unique tower which requires advanced engineering techniques both in terms of architectural design and construction methodology, all the design features, architectural planning and
material selections were made considering these processes. The tower has reached the total height of 369 meters of construction (589 meters above sea level) last year in April. In September 2018 the tower celebrated its first Lifting Up Process for the Construction of the inhabitable spaces to be attached to the whole of the tower’s core. In total 8 Lifting-Up Phases had been planned. Each Phase includes around 3-4 Levels each 4.5m high and weight in total around 1000-1200tones. In other words, you can imagine that each lifting up process equals to lifting up 1000 Cars at once from ground level up to 180m along the tower concrete core. The first 4 Lift Ups had been completed last month. Top 15 Levels (aprx. 70m) of the tower which will house two-story 360 view restaurant and observation deck overlooking views of Istanbul, from Asia to Europe have been constructed. The lifting up process for the remaining 130m Facade Build up will continue during the summer 2019. The monumental tower’s engineered facade is scheduled to be completed in late 2019.

Wayne continued: “One of the key design challenges associated with this development related to the client’s wish for the building to incorporate both a masonry and timber frame superstructure which, for a five-storey building, presented numerous design complications associated with disproportionate collapse. “In addition to this the project delivery team also faced interesting challenges during the early stages of the project due to experiencing poor ground conditions, which impacted upon the piled foundation solution and the contiguous piled retaining structure which was installed to support the public highway of Wollaton Street at the rear of the site.
welcome addition to the development of this area of the city.” Kane Tang, project owner and director at the site’s developers, Tang Developments Ltd, said: “I am so pleased I chose Dice to work on this project. The team have supported the project, overcome the site’s challenges and worked within the team to get us to the point we are now.
The Nest is particularly being marketed at international students as everything they need will be under one roof. It will be finished to an incredibly high standard and will provide students – and their parents - with complete confidence that they will be moving into accommodation that is of a good quality.
“With two universities in the city – which are only continuing to grow - there will always be a need for purpose-built, student accommodation in Nottingham and we are actively looking for new sites to develop to meet demand.
“Derby Road has a unique, independent feel and we wanted to make sure that this was reflected in The Nest’s design. The Nest will be a modern, aesthetically-pleasing addition to Derby Road, promoting modern living in the heart of the city. The first cohort of students are expected to move in, in January 2020 and will provide an economic boost to Derby Road’s eclectic offering.”
“The international student market continues to grow, with five million students currently studying outside their home country, a number which is set to grow to eight million by 2025.
The development planning was managed by GraceMachin and the building was designed by Nottingham-based architects Cleveley King. MPP project managed the scheme.
“We’ve worked closely with the developers and architects to create a building which has minimal impact on the environment and which complements the existing buildings in the vicinity - overcoming these challenges and delivering an impressive new structure on Derby Road. There are a lot of Nottingham teams involved in the construction of The Nest – from us on the engineering side and BEC on the mechanical and electrical engineering side, to the contractors, J A Ball, delivering the work itself – which is, of course, fantastic for the local economy and the city’s construction industry. “There really is a hive of activity going on along Derby Road and across Canning Circus, with new sites progressing everyday – promoting the city’s commercial and residential offering. We’re confident that The Nest will be another

BAKERHICKS DESIGN SUPER POWER ARTWORK STRUCTURE AT HEATHROW BakerHicks, the multi-disciplinary design and engineering company, has completed their part in the installation of a canopy of brightly coloured umbrellas which is currently on display at Heathrow Part of an initiative by the ADHD Foundation, the ‘Umbrella Project’ is designed to help raise awareness of neurodiversity and challenge stigma and promote the celebration of ‘super powers’. Appointed by Mace, the global consultancy and construction business, BakerHicks designed the highly complex cable tension structure that suspends the 300 umbrellas above the Heathrow Terminal 5 Arrivals forecourt. Spanning a 70m x 40m area, the engineered web comprises an impressive 3.5km of cable and weighs approximately one tonne. Working closely with the cable suppliers, Ormiston Wire Limited, BakerHicks were also responsible for the design of all cable connections. Computer analysis modelling was used to predict deflections and elongations in the cables, and thorough tests on scale models were also carried out to assess how the structure would react in various weather conditions, ensuring the safety of all passers-by.
With the project needing to be designed and constructed in a tight timeframe, BakerHicks worked closely with the contractor, Meads Construction Limited, to develop the construction sequence and tensioning requirements. All of the structural elements in the design were developed in conjunction with ongoing discussions with the contractor and suppliers to ensure the design was practical and all materials could be procured at short notice. The BakerHicks team also assessed the structural capacity of the existing ground floor structure and superstructure to enable the cables to be connected to the protruding steels of the Terminal 5 building, over 40m above ground level. The installation, which will be in place until October, celebrates the gifts, talents and employability of those with neuro-developmental disorders. The project’s name stems from the use of ADHD and autism as ‘umbrella’ terms for many neurological conditions, reframing them for children as ‘Super Powers’ with the umbrellas celebrating the unique gifts of every child. This is the first time the ‘Umbrella Project’ artwork has been available to view in London or at an airport.
