T&T Newcastle - Windermere Bike Ride

On Friday 10 June, Turner & Townsend staff from offices around the country took part in a 92-mile cycle ride from Newcastle, where our project and cost management team are based, to the Windermere Jetty site to raise funds in support of the project.

Eleven riders set off from the Newcastle office near to the Tyne bridge at 7am on Friday morning. The route took them across the Pennines climbing over 9000 feet over Rookhope, Allenheads, Hartside and Kirkstone Pass. They all successfully completed the ride arriving at the museum site eight and half hours later.

Site Progress - June

The first buildings have begun to emerge from the ground at the museum site on Windermere. The steel structure for the new conservation workshop was erected last month, although it is still to be clad the building already frames stunning views across the lake as can be seen in the photo above. The new boathouse structure has also begun to take shape spanning the water where boats will later be moored and visitors will see them bobbing on the lake. Groundworks have also continued preparing the site for the café building and learning centre that are next on the list to erect.
