CN's week in motion: Rise, demolitions and Styles & Wood

VIDEO: Check out our motion story and this brief run-through of just a selection of CN’s digital content this week (5 Sep – 9 Sep).

This week’s project report visited Rise Management, and their tight-knit work at London’s Royal Opera House. Just south of London, meanwhile, Mason and Brown carried out an explosive demolition of the UK’s second-largest chimney in Medway, Kent. Watch the video here.

Our data piece explores how, and if, infrastructure investment in the north, with a particular focus on Greater Manchester, can ease the region’s severe housing shortage. Fit-out firm Styles & Wood suffered, like many, during the pits of the recession, but new CEO Tony Lenehan has helmed a turnaround in the last few years.

In the news: Specialist contractor William Anelay is expected to enter administration following a dispute on a London hotel development; a CVA proposal failed after clients lost confidence in the firm’s creditors. Elsewhere, the developer behind the multi-million-pound Wyre Tidal Barrage has cut ties with its investor, Aventa Capital Partners – the investors are also funding the much-delayed £370m Circuit of Wales racetrack.
