Laing to float fund on LSE to raise £270m

first_img Laing to float fund on LSE to raise £270m KCS-content Tags: NULL Infrastructure group John Laing yesterday unveiled plans to list an infrastructure fund in London raising up to £270m. Laing, owned by asset manager Henderson Group, will sell up to £256m of infrastructure schemes to the newly formed John Laing Infrastructure Fund (JLIF), in a move flagged up earlier this month.The fund will use the cash from the flotation to buy the 19 projects, which include the Ministry of Defence headquarters in London, a hospital in Canada, the Metropolitan Police firearms and public order training centre in Gravesend and part of the M40 motorway.It will launch the flotation in the next few weeks, with admission to the main market of the London Stock Exchange expected in late November. It forms part of the group’s strategy to sell interests in mature infrastructure projects, the company said.Former chief executive of support services company VT Group, Paul Lester, will chair the fund, which will have first refusal on certain investments sold by John Laing in the next five years.Lester said pressure on government to cut costs and to boost economic development and efficiency meant the outlook for the fund was positive.“With our high quality asset base, attractive pipeline and first class management team, I’m confident we can generate value,” he said.The investment adviser appointed to the fund, John Laing Capital Management, has told it John Laing is likely to make available 17 projects worth about £325m in the next three years. The fund will be debt free at launch and will limit future borrowing to a maximum of a quarter of total assets and is targeting an initial annualised yield of 6 per cent per year.JP Morgan Cazenove was appointed as global co-ordinator and is joint bookrunner with Barclays Capital and RBS Hoare Govett.JP MORGAN CAZENOVEJohn Laing has appointed JP Morgan Cazenove as global co-ordinator, sponsor and joint book-runner on the flotation of John Laing Infrastructure Fund, while Barclays Capital and RBS Hoare Govett have been hired as joint book-runners.Laurence Hollingworth, Patrick Magee, Chris Nicholls and William Simmonds will be acting for JP Morgan, making Laing the latest in a long line of flotations and deals that the US investment bank has advised upon.Hollingworth was named head of UK equity capital markets at JP Morgan Cazenove when Cazenove Group and JP Morgan unveiled a deal last year under which their joint venture, JP Morgan Cazenove, became a wholly owned part of JP Morgan.Hollingworth and his team worked on flotations including supermarket home delivery group Ocado, former government-owned defence research group Qinetiq, media group Mecom, CPP, African Barrick Gold and Metric Property Investments.JP Morgan Cazenove claims to be the UK’s number one corporate broker, acting for 36 FTSE100 companies, 94 FTSE250 and 68 smaller companies.On Wednesday, former JP Morgan Cazenove chief executive Naguib Kheraj joined Lazard as chief executive of its international business.

Lewis acquired his stake from Robert Tchenguiz, whose ill-fated attempt to split off M&B’s property arm ended up costing the company £500m after a hedging strategy went wrong.Analyst at Evolution Securities Nigel Parson wrote: “Was he pushed? Did he jump? Are the hands of Joe Lewis and Elpida at work?…the soap opera that is Mitchells & Butlers continues to run and run.”Simon Burke, who replaced Lovering as chairman, said: “Adam has made a significant contribution over a number of years to Mitchells & Butlers and in particular in the past two years … in challenging conditions.” Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Because the buildings is a municipal monument, the architects used both restoration techniques and modern detailing.

It coincided with the Rotterdam Year of the Young Adults, therefore a concept has been developed by artist Ruud Reutelingsperger (Observatorium) together with young adults. The young adults expressed the need for a space enabling young emerging enterprises. This concept has been adopted by housing corporation Woonbron. Woonbron bought five run down apartments and a shop in the corner of a row of terraced housing. During this second stage, Krill architecture was asked to participate in a development group to create a programmatic concept and a spatial sketch. This resulted in a concept for office space and 24 studio’s. Twelve studio’s are meant for young adults, who, having a history of dropping out, are provided guidance for one or two hours per week on their way back to independency, while the other studio’s are reserved for young professionals, acting as role models. The office space was Architectural archaeologySave this picture!Third Floor PlanDuring the preliminary design phase, Krill Architecture asked Christian Müller to participate in the design process. The building was in a deplorable state after being neglected for years, nonetheless it was granted a monumental status during the design process. Krill/Christian Müller Architects decided to deal with this by revealing all time layers in this building, thus not only the architectural-cultural layer was treated as a monument, but also the used material, and traces human intervention, from the earliest notes of the original builders, drawn with pencil on previously covered beams, the traces of black coal on the walls where the chimneys were removed, to the new Cor Ten steel roof additions with structural glazing.  Save this picture!© Jeroen MuschSpatially the building has been drastically changed. The labyrinthine structure, result of numerous previous conversions, was traded in for a clear subdivision, with a central hall on each floor. Developed to enable informal contacts between the inhabitants, all halls have their individual bonus: the first floor is a ‘square’ , the second floor has a small ‘peninsula’  with a view to the street, the third is connected to the second through a void, while the fourth has access to the roof garden. Save this picture!© Jeroen MuschTo enable the spatial clarity, a structurally difficult task was performed; half the carrying wall was removed on site and replaced by a steel truss. This created a single wide space on the ground floor level, with place for 16 emerging offices and a coffee corner for the neighbourhood. A glass zone on the floor offers, through the exposed, old beams and the installation tubes, a view to the ‘underworld’ downstairs, with conference rooms, toilets and flexibility space. Not only social sustainabillity has been served by this project, great care was also taken to ensure energy efficiency and the use of C02 neutral materials. Using an integrated balanced ventilation system, solar collectors and insulation, the energy consumption level went from a high energy consuming  level G down to the green level A.Project gallerySee allShow lessKenneth Frampton wins Lifetime Achievement Award at Lisbon TriennaleArchitecture NewsThe Morpholio Project Launches Trace 2.0Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Rochussenstraat 355, 3023 DL Rotterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

This is a young no-kid couple who demanded open spaces, to develop their own living, but keeping each an own little place. They were looking for very bright interiors, although with some control of the sun in the hotter months, and directly communicated with the outside area, to extend the home for the long periods that the weather allows in this latitude.Save this picture!© Luis Ceres RuizThe office translated the demands of the owners to the project, watching the construction systems and studying the factors that affect various aspects of the process, taking advantage of building orientation and scale of the piece of land, developing a set of clear clean volumes in response to different spaces the program established .Save this picture!© Luis Ceres RuizThe owners like arrange meetings, parties and other events with friends and family, so the house is arranged on two levels, the main one, an almost unique space and very open to the outside, and the upper level, more exclusive and intimate, enhancing the value on the communication between them along the shared common volume. Both levels have a distinct compositional response in the elevations, the upper level as a broken but continuous body, leaning on the lower boxes that respond to the different uses of the main level. This lower level is composed by those containers each housing a different use, separated by axis of physical and visual communication between the two strips of ground.These lines score references between inside and outside, the built and the natural. The fact that owners keep a constant presence during the work, caused somechanges in the project to get a final result even more in line with the ideas they’ve held from the beginning, as well as new ones that arise during building p!rocess.Project gallerySee allShow lessTesistan Warehouse / CoA arquitectura + Estudio Macias PeredoSelected ProjectsPlumber: Is This Not A Pipe? – Launch of Volume 37Event Share ArchDaily Architects: Ceres A+D Area Area of this architecture project Year:  2012 2012 Year:  Area:  352 m² Area:  352 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Luis Ceres Ruiz+ 19 Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/470448/vivienda-aviles-ramos-ceres-a-d Clipboard Spain ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/470448/vivienda-aviles-ramos-ceres-a-d Clipboardlast_img read more

Designed with sustainability, low maintenance and natural ventilation in mind, OURHOUSEWANDAL is a low-budget, family home with a difference. Having traveled extensively and become accustomed to using minimal space wisely, the young family client wanted their first family home to reflect their love of the great outdoors and have a natural, rural feel, despite being located in a well-established Rockhampton suburb.Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Scott BurrowsStreet appeal and uninterrupted views of their expansive backyard and beyond was something they also desired for the property, which influenced the home’s shallow plan, position on the long arrow block, and the use of bold geometric shapes. Open plan living spaces with large floor-to-ceiling windows and doors are central to the sustainable design of this slightly elevated two-story home in order to capitalise on natural light and cross ventilation. The home’s large overhanging eaves, back deck, and strategic rear-facing orientation also help to minimise its reliance on artificial heating and cooling while making the most of its garden view. Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsSave this picture!© Scott BurrowsAll material choices were shaped by three criteria: environmental sustainability, low maintenance, and cost-effectiveness, hence the use of zinc cladding on the exterior walls and room as well as fibre cement on the lower level. Since the client’s budget was limited, standard materials (i.e., sliding doors, windows, and kitchen) were utilised in a thoughtful, creative way that added that contributed to the natural, modern, open-plan design – giving a luxe feel for less. Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsArriving at the final design was a collaborative process between the builder, architect, and the client, who as an engineer, was highly involved in the project and had a large impact on the design. This close working relationship enabled the overall cost of the project to be kept tight and within the client’s low budget. Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsEnvironmental sustainability was a key component of the OURHOUSEWANDAL project brief as the young family client requested that their home complement their existing sustainable lifestyle. To subsequently minimise its environmental impact, the home is elevated to provide maximum ventilation and orientated to take advantage of the natural light and incredible cross breezes that the location affords.Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsOpen plan living spaces with large floor-to-ceiling windows and doors combined with large overhanging eaves also help to minimise its reliance on artificial heating and cooling. Low cost, sustainable materials such as zinc cladding on the exterior walls and roof were also used where possible to reduce the home’s environmental footprint, minimise ongoing maintenance requirements and maximise the overall livability for its inhabitants.  Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsProject gallerySee allShow lessWhite Cave Gallery / 123 architectsSelected ProjectsXYTS Shop / WGNBSelected Projects Share Australia Year:  “COPY” Projects Save this picture!© Scott Burrows+ 21Curated by Paula Pintos Share Colin Strydom Manufacturers: Bluescope, James Hardie, Laminex, Bradnams Architects: Design+Architecture, N Veenstra Area Area of this architecture project OURHOUSEWANDAL / Design+Architecture + N VeenstraSave this projectSaveOURHOUSEWANDAL / Design+Architecture + N Veenstra 2020last_img read more

Recent changes to funding in Wales have meant that Family Fund has been unable to help the number of families it has previously, with families only able to seek support once every three years, instead of annually if they need to. Garfield Weston’s generous donation means that we can now reach back out to more than 200 of these families and provide essential support that many thought they would have to go without.”Family Fund is the largest UK charity providing grants to families on low incomes raising disabled or seriously ill children and provided 88,119 grants or services worth over £33 million to families across the UK last year, including 1,686 grants to families in Wales. Family Fund received a grant of £500,000 from Welsh Government in 2017/18, a reduction of £2 million from the amount it had received until 2016/17 of £2.5 million a year.last_img read more

This is something that The Lotteries Council warmly welcomes.“That National Lottery good cause funding is back on a growth trajectory again, alongside a growth in charity lottery good cause funding, backs up recent Gambling Commission modelling which showed that charity lottery sales don’t impact on the National Lottery. “The Lotteries Council is calling on the UK Government to bring forward changes in the law to help charity lotteries to grow their funding to good causes, and these latest statistics further strengthen the case for those changes.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. It has been a record year of fundraising by charity lotteries, according to the Gambling Commission’s annual statistics.The figures show that the sector raised £296 million in the year to March 2018, up from £256 million last year.Fundraising by the National Lottery is also growing again. The statistics show an increase in the percentage to good causes from society lotteries – at 43.8% – up from 43.5% last year – and in the percentage to good causes from the National Lottery, at 21.7% – up from 21.5% last year.Welcoming the record year of fundraising, Lotteries Council Chair, Tony Vick, praised players of charity lotteries for helping raise a record amount and said that the growth in good causes funding across both charity lotteries and the National Lottery was a “win-win” for the country. Vick said:“This has been a great year of charity fundraising by charity lotteries, with charities across the country benefitting as a result. Our thanks go to charity lottery players across Britain who have helped the sector make a record amount for good causes. “The charity lottery sector has a huge amount of fundraising talent within it – both staff and volunteers – and charities such as hospices, air ambulances, community groups and sports teams benefit as a result. Given the tough charity fundraising climate this growth in income is very welcome.“We also welcome that both charity lottery funding and National Lottery funding is on a growth trajectory, which is a win-win for the country and makes clear that both types of lottery can grow together.”Malcolm Fleming, Chair of The Lotteries Council Public Affairs Committee, added: Advertisementlast_img read more
