in brief •Home for Welsh history


Architects Purcell Miller Tritton and Feildon Clegg Bradley have been appointed to the project team for the redevelopment of St Fagans: National History Museum.


The site was awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £450,000 to develop detailed plans to make major improvements and transform the visitor experience. The Making History project aims to redesign the main entrance and build more gallery spaces, with the aim of extending the narrative timeline to tell the stories of the Welsh people from the earliest human inhabitation to the present day.


The contractors were appointed after an open competition in line with EU legislation. It is hoped that a second stage application to secure the bulk of the HLF funding will be approved in 2012.


Making history at St Fagans


The mixed use scheme is arranged around a public realm that aims to create a new vibrant centre New retail and leisure destination


Construction work has begun on the first phase of a £105m mixed use development scheme that will create two public spaces in a residential community in Higham’s Park, London. Developed by Spenhill, the wholly owned


regeneration subsidiary of Tesco, the 11.2 acre regeneration scheme, designed by Collado Collins, combines housing designed around a new public park and pedestrianised street to be called Lime Row. This new street will feature 10 new shops and cafes that will be anchored by a 37,000sq ft Tesco store. The mixed use development is situated on the former C&A warehouse site in


Higham’s Park. In accordance with the section 106 agreement, Tesco will invest more than £2m in the local community to provide new office space, business starter units, industrial workshops and a health centre. Tesco originally submitted plans for a scheme at Higham’s Park in 2005, which were subsequently rejected. The new scheme, designed by architects ColladoCollins, was submitted last year and praised by CABE, the former government design advisory body, in its report ‘Supermarket-led Development: Asset or Liability?’.


•2012 hospitality venue


Neptunus will start construction of a 3,000 capacity hospitality venue for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games early next year. The temporary structures will provide 11,500sq m of space over three floors with a three- storey high glass atrium entrance. Neptunus was awarded the contract by Prestige Ticketing, the official provider of corporate hospitality ticketing packages at next year’s event. The structures will be returned to Neptunus’s hire stock for reuse after the Games.
