UAE New Science Building Designed by Fraser Brown MacKenna Architects, The New Science Building at UEA provides state of the art, flexible, undergraduate teaching laboratories & general teaching in a purpose built building at the Western edge of the UEA’s parkland campus. The brief for this building was to create an open, accessible building that could become a hub for the Western part of the campus, in a building which
will both allow sciences to grow and to attract more students to study at UEA. This new building also helps to deliver a key part of the strategy for the renewal and improvement of the UEA Estate over the next 20+ years in particular reducing emissions from a building type which is historically wasteful & inefficient and providing decant space for the Grade II listed ‘Lasdun Wall’.
DYNAMIC INFRASTRUCTURE RESPONDS TO CORONAVIRUS AND ALLOWS FREE USE OF ITS AI-BASED BRIDGE MAINTENANCE TECHNOLOGY The New York and Tel Aviv based company Dynamic Infrastructure has decided to open free of charge its AIbased technology to enable Departments of Transportation and Private Public Partnerships (PPP) to continue to remotely manage the critical maintenance of bridges and tunnels during the global emergency resulting from the coronavirus pandemic. This will enable engineers and maintenance managers to continue critical tasks remotely when face to face meetings or site visits are difficult or impossible due to the situation. Dynamic Infrastructure, which provides maintenance managers and operators visual medical files with full analysis of their assets, will open its system and virtual assistive capabilities, free of charge. “A live 3D bridge with the related online visual medical records analysis enables remote discussions and decision making, avoiding unnecessary face-to-face meetings and still provides a power tool for taking the relevant operation and maintenance decisions,” said Daniel Granatshtain, Dynamic Infrastructure’s CTO. “People are still struggling to find the right way to ‘keep the maintenance running’ when workplaces and families are under full or partial quarantine. We know that remote access to assets, strong sharing capabilities and a knowledgeable decision support system can make a difference for our customers,” added Daniel.
Dynamic Infrastructure harnesses the power of AI to disrupt Operation & Maintenance of critical transportation assets. Founded by industry professionals with decades of operation and maintenance experience for PPPs and DOTs, Dynamic Infrastructure has become an industry leader and key driver of a data revolution in decision-making processes related to bridge and tunnel Operations & Maintenance. Headquartered in New York, NY, with offices in Germany and Israel, Dynamic Infrastructure maintains a close relationship with its clients and government institutions.
GARBMANN ENCOURAGES DONATIONS OF PPE FOR LOCAL CARE HOMES Personalised clothing specialists, Garbmann, are in contact with local care homes to help provide them with packages of the personal protective equipment they are struggling to receive. As well as investing over £650 into PPE itself so far, the company is also encouraging donations from others.
NOTTINGHAM COUPLE ENJOY GREENER ENERGY WITH A SOLAR PV SYSTEM Passionate about helping save the planet, Sean and Terri set out to reduce their carbon footprint with a solar PV system on their house in Nottingham. They are now enjoying greener energy and saving money on their energy bills thanks to a 4.8kW solar PV system installed by Geo Green Power. Excited to start their green journey, Sean and Terri sought quotes from several solar energy companies but found none of them offered the same solution or inspired the same level of confidence as Geo Green Power. Explaining their choice to go with Geo Green Power, the couple said: “We felt very comfortable with the surveyor, Jack, and were impressed with his enthusiasm.
He came across as being knowledgeable, professional and genuine. He was open, direct, and honest, and there was no hard sell.
The installation and commissioning took place in a single day, and Sean and Terri added: “We were extremely impressed with the whole installation and commissioning process. “It was smooth, efficient with no fuss, no mess and all of the installation team were professional, respectful, and courteous. Outstanding!” The 4.8kW system is now saving 1.8 tonnes of CO2 every year, taking Sean and Terri a long way on their journey to reduce their carbon footprint. Their smart meter shows them in real time how much electricity they are drawing from the grid and they’re always satisfied to see the green line reduced to zero on a clear day. They’re not done with their green journey yet. Keen to reduce their use of the grid completely, they plan on installing battery storage to make the most of their solar energy overnight.
The most sought-after items include disposable aprons, gloves, face masks, coveralls, hand sanitisers, goggles and face visors. All items should be unused and unpackaged. The plans are being made in an effort to support key care workers, many of

whom have not been able to get hold of the correct PPE. Providing them with the equipment they need is a vital step towards keeping them safe, as well as containing the spread amongst the elderly or unable, ultimately helping to save lives. Laurence Sharpe, Owner and Director of Garbmann, who provide custom safety gear and PPE, explains how companies can make donations:
Anyone can donate. All donations are fully tracked, and you will be publicly thanked for helping, plus those receiving the PPE will be notified of who has donated.

Network Rail Works Delivery Manager, Nad Campbell, commented: “The wet weather conditions we experienced over the winter period had an inevitable impact on a number of railway cuttings and embankments across our network. “The delivery of these critical works play a vital role in ensuring that our passengers and our staff remain safe and disruption is kept to a minimum. “These works require a great team effort and I am proud of the collaborative, round the clock approach that underlines our commitment to putting passengers first.”

FISH ISLAND VILLAGE Fish Island Village, a new £125 million live-work neighbourhood to the south of Hackney Wick, has reached a major milestone: the mixed-use development by Haworth Tompkins, Pitman Tozer Architects and Lyndon Goode Architects, has just welcomed its first workspace tenants after residents began moving in early last year.

Tozer Architects is responsible for three blocks on Monier Road; Lyndon Goode Architects has designed Lanterna, a free-standing block facing onto a new public space at the northeast corner of the site; and Haworth Tompkins is the architect of Neptune Wharf, two clusters with 13 blocks fronting onto the canal. Monier Road and Lanterna are now complete, with residents moving in. Works continue on site at Neptune Wharf.

Located within one of the 2012 Olympic Fringe areas opposite Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Fish Island Village is a joint venture development between Peabody, one of London’s oldest and largest housing associations, and Hill, an award-winning top 15 UK housebuilder. Stirling Prize winner Haworth Tompkins is the masterplanning architect of the 2.85 hectare site, with the public realm and rooftops designed by landscape architect Farrer Huxley Associates. The scheme replaces an inaccessible site of disused single-storey distribution warehouses with a collection of mid-rise buildings interspersed with new public spaces fronting onto the canal. © Fred Howarth
Sited next to an existing live/work block, Omega Works, Fish Island Village opens up 200 metres of previously closed-off canal frontage along the Hertford Union Canal. The new development will create a dynamic canal side neighbourhood with a public square for local activities and spillout space for the ground floor bars and restaurants. Phases 1 and 2 of Fish Island Village (on site to complete this spring) comprise four distinct mixeduse sections designed by three architecture practices working in collaboration, appointed individually through Peabody’s architecture framework.

Designed to reflect Hackney Wick’s industrial heritage while heralding the area’s urban transformation, the development aims to achieve the robustness and permanence of historical warehouses, and to create a legible public realm composed of public squares, yards and treelined streets. Adopting a European model, the three practices worked collaboratively to achieve a sense of diversity and cohesion, taking ownership of separate elements while sharing a rigorous architectural language and materials palette of brick and precast concrete.

Phases 1 and 2 provide 423 homes, in a mix of private, affordable rent and shared ownership, including one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments and maisonettes, as well as 4,600m2 of workspace, of which 4,280m2 will be managed by social enterprise The Trampery. The campus is a key project within Hackney Wick’s Creative Enterprise Zone, and an important part of the Fashion District Initiative, a hub of ambitious businesses, academic institutions and investors in East London. The first seven studios to welcome tenants are the seven studios in Monier Road, have been allocated to emerging fashion studios. © Fred Howarth © Nick Kane

The Industry The Public Sector accounts for an estimated 40% of the total spend on Construction in the UK. In the coming years this will further increase which will lead to a predicated spend of £75bn in 2021. At a local government level construction is the single largest category of procurement expenditure. Gaining contracts in this industry, be it as a product manufacturer or a contractor, is a rewarding as contract values are often high and often lead to further contracts.
