CN's week in motion: Willmott, Heathrow and Mace

VIDEO: Check out our motion story and this brief run-through of just a selection of CN’s digital and print content this week (24 Oct – 28 Oct).

The big breaking news of the week emerged as Heathrow was granted approval to build its third runway. Though it was suggested construction might be pushed back to 2022 in light of various political and legal challenges to the expansion, Heathrow has confirmed its intention to start construction in 2020.

The project report this week is a suitably spooky affair, with Willmott Dixon refurbishing a 16th-century theatre in Darlington, said to be haunted by a number of spirits. There were fewer scares in our analysis of the top 10 FM contractors, which showed little EU-referendum impact, and decent margins; but there are still challenges to overcome.

Mace poached two from both Laing O’Rourke and Lendlease, whilst Wates scored a hat-trick of student digs developments worth a combined total of more than £130m.
