Are we nearly there yet?

Just cast your mind back to your childhood days, going on a car journey any longer than 30 minutes was a big deal.  The adrenalin of going on such a long journey definitely warranted the need to fully prepare.  Stocking up with books, travel games, packets of sweets or anything else to occupy the mind, […]

COVID-19 : Retaining the initiative

In these very unusual times, it brings to mind some interesting reflections…I will never forget the time I got caught in a strong ocean current whilst snorkelling off a glass-bottomed boat in Barbados.  Being young and inexperienced, the automatic reaction was to swim harder and more vigorously in some futile attempt to overcome a greater […]

COVID-19 An update from Colorminium

In this very challenging time of national emergency, we are all finding that we need to keep extremely agile to deal with the key issues as they confront us. What seemed important last week, has fast moved down the list of priorities.

Project Progress: Canopy hotel by Hilton, Aldgate London

Construction is well underway and nearing completion of the first Canopy hotel by Hilton in the UK, on this prime site in Aldgate, London.

The redevelopment of the site is an important step in the regeneration and expansion of the core fabric of the City of London eastwards beyond the confines of Aldgate. With a view to re-structuring the fabric of this area due to its inconsistency both physically and socially, a masterplan has been developed which comprises some new construction alongside utilisation of existing buildings, whilst leaving the adjacent bus station unaffected.

Project Awarded: Rose Court

We are delighted to have been recently awarded the contract for the Rose Court scheme.

Engaged firstly by Colliers prior to appointment of the Main Contractor, and working closely with BDG architecture + design, this commercial office building is in need of extensive refurbishment including a new facade to improve the performance of the existing building and provide high quality workspace throughout.
