Media spotlight on Engineering Building roof project
The project to replace the roof and glazed facades of our world-famous Engineering Building and preserve its heritage has been the subject of an in-depth feature in Construction Manager Magazine.
As well as featuring on the cover, an article on the project describes it as "a contender for the most technically challenging roofing job ever attempted" and interviews Project Manager Pete Bale on the complexity of the work and the efforts to maintain its historic status.
Designed by architects Stirling and Gowan, the Grade II* listed Engineering building is recognised internationally as one of the most significant buildings of the 20th century and is considered an architectural icon. The building, constructed in the 1960s, has a unique glass roof and vertical glazed panels system which has now reached the end of its useful life. Last month the Guardian listed it as one of the 'world's best unsung buildings'.
