Self-storage, Scotland and the Northern Powerhouse: CN's week in motion

VIDEO: Check out our motion story and this brief run-through of just a selection of CN’s digital content this week (15 Aug – 19 Aug).

Our clients and markets piece this week revolves around the self-storage market and the opportunities it is now presenting for contractors; meanwhile, we visit Scotland to take a look at how Darroch & Allan is refurbishing a 19th century dairy farm into a new University campus.

Delays at Hinkley have raised questions about prime minister Theresa May’s stance on Chinese investment in the UK – we take a look at what this could mean for the Northern Powerhouse, with a number of northern projects already having forged close ties with Chinese companies.

Balfour Beatty released its half-year results this week, revealing a £66m loss in its UK business; elsewhere, a Spanish-based contractor has joined forces with a Korean firm to build a £650m energy plant in the north.

Finally, Bam Construct, Galliford Try hps, Graham Construction, Integrated Health Projects (Sir Robert McAlpine / Vinci), Interserve and Kier are preferred bidders on the £4bn ProCure22 framework.
