CN's week in motion: Sellar, Chandler and Bristol, too

VIDEO: Check out our motion story and this brief run-through of just a selection of CN’s digital and print content this week (17 Oct – 21 Oct).

The week kicked off with Mark Farmer’s review of the structural issues beleaguring the industry, as well as his ten start recommendations for real chance. Read an analysis of Mr Farmer’s reviews here, as well as the government response from industry minister Jesse Norman here.

At the CN Summit 2016, Irvine Sellar delivered his inspirational keynote speech, and afterwards told CN that he would never build another Shard again. Elsewhere, CN’s first-ever Tech Sprint ended with a victory for Team ‘Resource’, whose ‘Uber for concrete’ app idea received praise from all our judges.

This week’s project report came from Balfour Beatty and Bristol’s new metrobus site. With the project designed to ease congestion in the city, Balfour had a number of groundwork issues to overcome.

Industry moves: Paul Chandler was confirmed as managing director for Wates Group’s construction business, with Paul Heather also confirmed as McAlpine’s new London regional manager. Meanwhile, Horizon Nuclear appointed Ivor Sheppard as its new commercial director.
