CN's week in motion: Trump, energy and HS2

VIDEO: Check out our motion story and this brief run-through of just a selection of CN’s digital and print content this week (7 Nov – 11 Nov).

Donald Trump will be the 45th president of the United States of America. What does that mean for the future of sustainable building, with Mr Trump’s well-acknowledged doubts surrounding climate change? How will it impact UK infrastructure and construction?

This week’s project report focuses on the arts, with Kier and NG Bailey bringing Chester’s Storyhouse Theatre to life; meanwhile, our special report centred on energy infrastructure, with the future of a number of markets, such as tidal, battery and solar, all explored in relation to construction.

In the news: Preferred bidders for the £900m enabling works on HS2 were revealed in a CN exclusive; Laing O’Rourke preconstruction director Mark Richardson has moved to U+I having worked with the contractor for nearly 40 years; and nearly 60 people have lost their job after Yorkshire-based construction firm Management Cubed went into administration.
