CN Awards 2017 Project 20 50 Multiplex Construction Europe




Being in the heart of the theatre district, the project presented unique challenges beyond the usual constraints of building in central London. The busy local road network meant minimising disruption was as important as the project’s successful delivery.

The retained façade is also a remarkable achievement – one of the largest such retention schemes ever undertaken in Europe.

CN Awards 2017 Project 20 50 Structure Tone


Structure Tone – Ogilvy Group and MEC Headquarters

These new offices in the former Sea Containers House are a stunning addition to the growing ‘Creative Mile’ that has taken shape along the Thames’ South Bank.

This project transformed a gridded base structure (low ceilings, protruding concrete wall fins, long and low floor plates) into nine floors of interconnected open office space, extending to roof level.

The 12 unique staircases, river deck, oak timber amphitheatre, new kitchens, new bars and beautiful finishes – along with a unifying AV system – create a unique workplace.

CN Awards 2017 Project 20 50 Vinci Construction UK


Vinci Construction UK – Spire Hospital, Manchester

Spire Healthcare appointed Vinci to deliver one of the most technologically advanced private hospitals in the country.

With just 21 months from brownfield site to completion, an efficient programme was critical as the client team allocated only five weeks (including the Christmas period) between practical completion and admission of its first patient.


Exemplary health and safety also ensured over 500,000 injury-free hours.

CN Awards 2017 Project 20 50 Willmott Dixon Met Office


Willmott Dixon – Met Office Supercomputer

This Met Office flagship project will improve weather forecasting around the world.


Sustainability was strong thanks to a green living wall on the IT hall composed of rare breeds of Devon flora and fauna and landscaping using 3,500 local grasses, flowers and plants.
