Blog: Featured finalist - Aperture - Kier Construction

04 May 2018

Project of the Year (£10m and over)

Project value: £11.65m

Location: Greenwich, London

Described as “A modern village hall”, Aperture is a main community hub for the first phase of 2,500 residence on the Greenwich Peninsula. The high specification, five storey building comprises a restaurant, a day nursery, estate management, community centre and a gym.

Design, management and construction of the bespoke façade was a challenge, with a series of mock-ups, sample approval sessions and workshops taking place to resolve the technical challenges. Another of the challenges was the multi end-users needs that developed during the construction phase. Kier worked closely with the client team, consultants and the supply chain to absorb changes into the programme and provide advice on cost and lead times to meet the client’s aspirations.

The team delivered this complex building on a tight footprint, in a multi-contractor environment, with zero injuries or incidents and no defects at handover. Aperture exceeded the expectations of the client by developing and adapting design in an open and collaborative way.
