Hotel Underground Competition
The Design, Engineer, Construct! competition, sponsored by Radisson Hotels and London Transport, required the pupils to design a building that would transform a disused, existing London Underground station into a top class hotel with a James Bond theme! They were given a model of the station and were asked to build above, below and through with just 8 weeks to turn the project around.
Brad Lees, Luke Chantler, Luke Steedman and Craig Vevers, were crowned Northern Winners for their innovative 00Heaven design and as such travelled to London to go head to head with the Southern winners, Heathcote School in Chingford, for the national title.
The pupils had to present their ideas to a panel of top industry professionals at a glitzy awards ceremony. They spent two days in London which included staying in a 4* Radisson Hotel, a tour of the London Transport Agency Building and the opportunity to listen to presentations from the Groups' design and engineering specialists.
