The Stirling prize-nominated building plays host to over 100 new professionals from across the construction industry

Nearly 120 networkers from across construction joined Building for a very special episode of Phase One last night – at the Stirling prize shortlisted Westminster Academy in north-west London.

After warming up in the vast market atrium and chatting over mince pies and mulled wine, they filed into the purpose-built auditorium for a presentation by project architect Susi Le Good, associate director at AHMM.

Demand for tours of the building was so strong that Le Good ended up conducting two rounds of the school, and answering attendees' questions until late into the evening.

Phase One will return in the new year, offering relative newcomers to the industry a chance to meet people from other disciplines, have an exclusive tour of much-admired new buildings and hear the story behind the project. Sign up for your Phase One Invitation here.
