The UK’s Grandest Designs
15 May 2018
At Millbank we’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the UK’s top architectural design companies to assist them with many exciting projects.
By seeking out key roles such as Architects, Designers, and Planners, along with Civil, Structural, Project and Construction Engineers, we enable our clients to deliver exceptional projects that contribute to our country’s infrastructure.
Here are a few of our favourite pieces of architecture from around the country to celebrate the impact of great design to all of us.
Mersey Gateway Bridge, Halton
Maybe we are biased, being located just a couple of miles away and having been involved in staffing the project. However, the Mersey Gateway Bridge is an iconic and recognisable landmark of the North West, owing to its three towers at different heights creating a unique profile.
The project has won awards for sustainability and technology and has created a true gateway between Merseyside and Cheshire, in effect replacing the aging and overworked Silver Jubilee Bridge.
The contractors for the project were FCC Construcción, Kier and Samsung.
King’s Cross Station, London
Although originally built in 1851-1852, we are more in awe
of the 2012 restoration of King’s Cross Station, completed by Arup. It has been
described as being "like some kind of reverse waterfall, a white steel
grid that swoops up from the ground and cascades over your head."
Imperial War Museum North, Manchester
Opened in July 2002 and designed by architect Daniel
Libeskind, Imperial War Museum North in Trafford, Manchester is a striking
design. It was built by Arup and Sir Robert McAlpine. In 2003 it won the
British Construction Industry’s Building of the Year Award.
A more recent project, Boxpark has won awards for its sustainable design, repurposing 96 shipping containers into a contemporary dining and cultural space.
It was designed by BDP and opened in October 2016. It recently won the RIBA London Award 2017.
