The new temple is being funded through donations from the local community as well as supporters nationwide and internationally.
WORK STARTS ON £5M HINDU TEMPLE Work has begun on the construction of a new £5m Hindu Temple in Oldham, whose design is a blend of modern and traditional features.
Site clearance has begun and will be followed by ground works, structural steel works, glass-reinforced concrete works and then the internal finishes.
Shree Swaminarayan Temple has appointed Salford Quays-based Recom Solutions as the main contractor. The project is due for completion in 2022.
The site of the new temple was previously a housing association depot which has since been demolished.
Around 100 people, including members of the community, senior temple leaders, design team personnel and contractors attended a ground-breaking ceremony to bless the start of the scheme on Copsterhill Road.
Once completed, the Shree Swaminarayan Temple will feature a spacious and naturally-lit modern prayer hall, space for sports, events and teaching, a courtyard with landscaped gardens, parking and accommodation.
An ornate solid marble feature gate and traditional Hindu temple domes will be hand-crafted in India, imported and installed at the new facility.
The Recom Solutions team is led by project director Jason McKnight, Josh Marrs and Jordan Stent.
The Shree Swaminarayan Temple, currently based on Lee Street, opened in 1977. The community has been seeking a new, modern facility for a number of years. Planning permission for the new development was granted in June 2019.
CONSTRUCTION BEGINS FOR NEW £20M CARE HOME Work has begun on the construction of a ground-breaking 80 bed care home which will be construction company Savista’s fifth project. The new luxury development, which will be owned by Savista Development’s sister company, Hallmark Care Homes is being built at a cost of nearly £20 million across a two-acre site at Kings Drive in Eastbourne. The site’s construction team, were recently joined by Conservative MP Caroline Ansell, Deputy Mayor, Councillor Sammy Choudhury, Hallmark’s Managing Director Ram Goyal and Chair Avnish Goyal to officially mark the start of the build. The care home will include the latest features including residences for couples complete with fitted kitchen and bathroom and communal areas will include the usual; café, ice cream parlour, a state-ofthe-art cinema and a luxurious hairdressers and therapy room. The home will have an abundance of
outdoor space on all floors including terraces, a summer garden bar, winter garden activity centre and half an acre of landscaped gardens with a unique woodland walkway for residents and visitors to enjoy. Chair of Hallmark Care Homes and Managing Director of Savista Developments, Avnish Goyal said: “We are proud that Savista Developments has started its fifth care home project since launching in September last year and combined with 23 years’ experience with building award winning care homes we are excited to be able to create a luxurious care home for the Eastbourne community and to continue the partnership between Hallmark Care Homes and Savista Developments.”
Other professionals involved in the scheme include LTS Architects, Curtins and Hurstwood Environmental Consulting.
“Residents will enjoy some of the latest features in care and design and live active and fulfilled lives.” The Eastbourne development called Willingdon Park Manor is scheduled to open its doors to its first residents in late 2021.

LONG-TERM VALUE FROM MODULAR STAINLESS STEEL BRIDGE Andy Backhouse, technical manager for stainless steel manufacturer Outokumpu, explains how structural engineers and architects have turned to stainless steel as a durable and visually striking material for bridges. Councils and government agencies that are responsible for building and maintaining most of the UK’s bridges have a close eye on their budgets. So it’s no surprise that many agencies want bridges and steel structures that minimise the Life Cycle Cost (LCC).
LCC is the sum of all the costs associated with a structure, including feasibility studies, engineering design and construction, as well as regular inspection, maintenance, repair and eventual decommissioning.
Many bridge owners find that there are significant costs in maintenance and repair of bridges. A high profile example is the Brooklyn Bridge in New York. It was built in 1883 for $15 million at the time, but has cost $600 million to repair since 2006 alone. Corrosion has taken its toll, with loss of structural integrity due to rust in many places Happily, since 1883, steel alloys have come a long way. Today’s duplex stainless steels provide a combination of high strength and corrosion resistance that can provide a 120 year lifetime for a bridge, even in coastal locations, where salt increases the likelihood of corrosion sites forming on a steel structure. Duplex stainless steels were developed in the 1930s and are widely used in the North Sea offshore industries. They are dual phase steels containing chromium and a careful balance of other alloying elements with the result that they have excellent corrosion resistance and higher mechanical strength than standard stainless steels. As a result, structural engineers have an opportunity during the design process to slim down beams and trusses, creating structures that are lightweight and lower cost. Stainless steel modular bridge The municipality of Södertälje, near Stockholm in Sweden, is one council that
26 Construction UK Magazine - September 2020
is convinced that duplex stainless steels offer the best long term value. When a wooden pedestrian and cycle bridge over the E4 motorway was coming to the end of its life after only 20 years, the council wanted a replacement in steel that did not require extensive maintenance, repair and re-painting. It opted for a modular bridge from Swedish fabricator Stål & Rörmontage that was designed to optimise LCC. The bridge was manufactured off-site and delivered to site in sections, which were craned into place, requiring only a short closure of the strategic E4 highway. In fact, the installation of the new bridge was achieve faster than dismantling the old one. The bridge is based on a patented modular design that includes polycarbonate panels that protect pedestrians from the weather, as well as LED lighting for the long winter nights. Peter Månsson, Quality Manager of Stål & Rörmontage, said: “The bridge is made of two pieces, one of them is 36 metres long and the other one 24 metres. Our special, protected design was developed to make the most of the material and also to cut the bridge’s LCC.
This bridge has a lifespan of 120 years, with no need for maintenance. In our thinking, the total life cycle costs have to be taken into account, not only the immediate investment costs. The initial cost of a stainless bridge is higher. But at first maintenance check, at approximately 30 years, when a carbon steel bridge has to be repainted and a wooden bridge replaced, stainless pays itself back.
“Outokumpu’s Lean Duplex Forta LDX 2101 was our first hand choice for this project. Long lifespan of the bridge was very important for the municipality as well. Our calculations indicate that, over a reference period of 120 years, wooden bridges and steel bridge costs are significantly higher than a stainless steel bridge.” White paper - analysis of Life Cycle Costs Recognising that many bridge owners will want a breakdown of the LCC of bridges in different steels, a white paper based on a study carried out with engineering consultancy Arup is available, ‘Stainless steel composite bridge study – a summary of Arup reports’, which is available on Outokumpu’s website.
required due to the higher strength. As a result, the lean duplex LDX2101 bridge has comparable overall construction costs to the carbon steel beamed bridge. However, because the stainless steel has high durability thanks to excellent corrosion resistance, the beams would not require regular re-painting or repair. In turn, they have the lowest cost of maintenance – and the lowest overall LCC.
The lifetime costs were compared for four composite steel-concrete road bridges made with different steel beam materials – painted S355 carbon steel, unpainted weathering steel and two of Outokumpu’s duplex stainless steels. It was found that it was possible to optimise the structural design with the duplex steels such that less material was

Sound Zero’s aims are clear: Blending acoustics and design to create a better environment for all. The team’s areas of expertise include: • Office and retail spaces • Educational environments • Healthcare facilities • Music studios • Mixed-use developments • Gyms • Hotels • High-end residential projects • Performance spaces Led in part by acoustics expert, Luke Warwick, Sound Zero’s approach aims to combine the ever changing and more demanding requirements of modern construction, with a design philosophy that places the client’s personality and imagination at the forefront of everything Sound-Zero creates.
Acoustics and design is about balance. Quite often, we have to combine client aspirations, architectural and aesthetic constraints, the laws of acoustics and current guidance in order to provide a complete solution. Their client-winning design philosophy stems from a combination of different experience, with Luke working in various technical roles within and around the acoustics industry and Gavin’s many years of design and branding background. This has led to a wide variety of commissions where the team has transformed spaces for some of the world’s most prestigious brands, from Facebook to Universal Music. The team’s creative prowess can be seen most recently in The Kernel Brewery’s converted railway archcome taproom in South East London, right through to the Natural History Museum in the Nation’s capital. Sound Zero aims to not only change the image of the acoustics industry but also set out a clear path to reduce its impact on the environment.

SCHÖCK THERMAL BREAKS FOR WEMBLEY’S LARGEST SINGLE DEVELOPMENT Canada Gardens is the largest single development site that Quintain, the developer behind the regeneration of Wembley Park, is undertaking in the area. Set around a landscaped courtyard and podium-level communal gardens, Canada Gardens comprises seven stepped height buildings, ranging from 12 to 26 storeys, which provide 743 residential apartments. The tallest unit being a landmark building to the northern end of Wembley Park. It conceals an energy centre, which feeds other developments within the vicinity and at rooftop level features a residents lounge and a rooftop garden with exceptional views across London. A number of the buildings at Canada Gardens have in fact been angled at 45 degrees to optimise general views throughout the whole of the site. The concrete frame buildings have façades predominantly of brick and glass – and a notable feature throughout the development is the number of generous steel balconies. The structural and long– term thermal insulation performance of these balconies is critical and as with many of the other major projects at Wembley Park, Schöck Isokorb load-bearing thermal insulation elements are the preferred solution. Hundreds of cantilevered steel balconies Local heat loss is the immediate effect of poor insulation at cantilever connection points and this results in more energy being required to maintain the internal temperature of the building. In addition, low internal surface temperatures in the area of the thermal bridge can cause condensation, leading not only to structural integrity problems with absorbent materials such as insulation products or plasterboard, but also mould growth. This has serious health implications for residents in the form of asthma and allergies. So for any project involving balcony detailing, the prevention of thermal bridging is a critical issue. There are hundreds of balconies
installed at Canada Gardens and the Schöck Isokorb type used throughout is a load-bearing thermal insulation element with 80mm insulation thickness, for connecting cantilevered steel balconies to a reinforced concrete slab. The units are ideal in resolving any technical, thermal and structural issues involved in the design of modern steel balconies and guarantee there is no risk of condensation, mould or corrosion. Other applications for the product include steel canopy roofs, façade substructures and brise soleil systems. Enormous freedom of design As the leading international supplier of structural thermal breaks, Schöck is able to offer planners complete construction dependability and total freedom of design, with the almost limitless variants available in its main Isokorb range. The comprehensive Schöck Isokorb range offers solutions for concrete-to-concrete, concrete-to-steel, steel-to-steel, a thermally insulating connection for reinforced concrete walls – and even a
maintenance free alternative to wrapped parapets. The temperature factor used to indicate condensation risk (fRSI) which must be greater than, or equal to, 0.75 for residential buildings, is easily met by incorporating the Isokorb. All products meet full compliance with the relevant UK building regulations and the NHBC. They also offer LABC Registration and have independent BBA Certification.
