We look at the evil side of sustainable building design, with an in-depth review of the new European headquarters for James Bond villain Ernst Blofeld.
We also report on Amazon’s venture into the modular housing market; the archaeological mysteries unearthed by HS2; the tunnel project getting women back into work; and five major industry innovations that will change construction.
Plus, we reveal British builders’ top beauty secrets, new proptech concepts gaining traction, and much more from across property, construction and the built environment.
But wait. All is not what it seems…
Some of the stories in the Christmas card are based on entirely real, factual news. Other stories are completely made up.
