A group of six American students plus their Professor, from the School of Building Construction at the Georgia Institute of Technology, visited The Turnmill site on Tuesday 11th June. Both a mix of undergraduate and graduate students were shown around the prominent site in Clerkenwell and witnessed how the McLaren team operated and the challenges they faced.

This new build commercial office development includes the demolition of the existing Turnmill building at 63 Clerkenwell Road.

The development will comprise of, a new six storey office building with basement and will provide a total of 97,000 sq ft of space; including 68,000 sq ft of office space completed to Cat A standards and a further 31,000 sq ft of flexible retail and restaurant space.

The students were shown a brief presentation by Robert Kremis and David Wells which included: a brief history of the previous Turnmill building, the proposed office building programme overview and the construction methodology and logistics of the various construction phases. The talk and tour was well received by all of the students, including the professor.

“I wanted to take a few minutes to let you both know how much I appreciated your time last week and our tour of McLaren’s Turnmill project. It’s an impressive site and I took in a lot from it and from our conversation…The fact that you both [Rob Kremis and David Wells] took so much time out of your schedules to show some students around really demonstrates your character and what McLaren values as a company.” Jeffrey Miller, Vice President, GA Tech Student Construction Association.
