Hansom: Yule never walk alone

Hansom: Road worthy

19 Dec 16

This week, a not-so-ingenious firm hits the road, a Hollywood trolling, demolishing the wrong house is a ‘boo-boo’, contractors lose a Victorian post box and underground cars are a non-starter

Hansom: Apocalypse now?

11 November 2016

The sandwich board men might be right this week, as we see Donald Trump affecting house prices, aircraft thronging the skies, sinister signs, beloved pubs being demolished and it’s even raining in CGI images

Hansom: That’s show business

4 Nov 16

A little glamour this week (not before time), as a construction grandee is touched by Tinseltown, Zaha Hadid designs for the Brits, and we get not one but two film festivals - plus, there’s a real tearjerker about a bench

Hansom: Misperceptions

28 Oct 16

Our understanding of the world is challenged this week as the true nature of an industry figure is revealed while it seems we’ve got van drivers all wrong, and coffee cups are no longer just vessels for hot beverages

Hansom: Coming of age

21 Oct 16 | Updated: 21 Oct 16

If the stress of working in construction is turning your hair grey, count yourself lucky – you could be a GP. And if you really want to keep in touch with your younger side, you can always dig out your old Lego set

Hansom: What the dickens?

23 Sep 16

This week, we have a colourful tale of giant chimneys, a certain shade of the colour blue, ever-more absurd house prices, a modern mausoleum and some excellent exploits in aid of the less fortunate

Hansom HT

Hansom: It’s the surreal thing

16 Sep 16

This week, a gobsmackingly pricey home, students of today aren’t what they used to be, chamber music at City Hall, British Land goes walkies, and Holiday Inn guests get to sleep in shipping containers

Hansom HT

Hansom: Gargoyles and grotesques

9 Sep 16

Chelsea vs Spurs compete for your attention this week – plus, it’s journey’s end for a 1926 signalling cabin, we get ready for Construction Rocks and Boris Johnson gives us a fright (possibly not for the last time)
