Paul Tanter directs this British crime sequel in which a reformed football hooligan who has testified against powerful London gangsters finds his safety under threat. Mike Jacobs (Nick Nevern) was never entirely comfortable with the company he kept in London and now lives in Spain, safeguarded by the Witness Protection Programme after his evidence put several of his former associates behind bars. However, Mike's fatal weakness is his passion for the England football team and his problems begin when he is spotted attending a game. Soon his life is turned upside down as those he betrayed seek revenge through the kidnapping of his friend Katie (Rita Ramnani). With less than a week to gather the two million pound ransom required to save her, Mike's quest will take him back to London and into grave danger.

The performance of the construction industry has been a constant source of criticism and review for many years in the UK and a variety of other countries, and this has culminated in a series of major initiatives aimed at changing the combative nature of the industry to one that effectively provides the service clients say they want. There has been interest in the issues, but little consensus on how to move forward.

Following a number of research initiatives a seven part model has been developed. It has been made possible to set out challenges for various key stakeholders and make clear proposals regarding progressive implementation drawing from various national experiences.

The seven key areas for action are:

- A holistic notion of construction
- A shared vision amongst stakeholders
- A balance between markets and social capital
- Dynamic decisions and information
- Evolving knowledge and attitudes
- Awareness of the systemic contribution of construction
- Promotion of the full value delivered to society

Features of this book:

- Takes a global perspective on the ways forward for the construction industry.
- Identifies seven key areas for action, and the connections between them.
- Based on results from a series of international conferences, survey questionnaires and workshops.
- Published in association with CIB - the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction

Effective construction briefing is vital for a successful project, whether this be in terms of client satisfaction or an effective commercial outcome for the professionals involved.

Despite that, however, poor briefing continues to result in late buildings which do not adequately meet a client's requirements, achieved through a process they do not enjoy.

This book, based on detailed research with industrial partners, identifies five key areas where briefing can be improved:
empowering the client
managing the project dynamics
appropriate user involvement
team building, and
the use of appropriate visualisation techniques.

The areas for improvement are described in detail and are backed up with comments from clients and practitioners. A series of case studies adds further practical detail. It is shown that good briefing is good business.

This easy-to-read guide provides an effective improvement process which firms can adapt to their specific circumstances. It will appeal both to clients and their professional advisers.

Drawing on detailed design, construction and financial histories of six prominent Performing Arts buildings with budgets ranging from AGBP3.4 million to over AGBP100 million, Geometry and Atmosphere presents unique and valuable insights into the complex process of building for the arts. Each theatre project, from tailor-made spaces for avant-garde companies to iconic and innovative receiving houses, yields surprising and counter-intuitive findings. For each of the six projects, the authors have interviewed all those involved. Combining these interviews with exhaustive archival research, the authors then provide cross-case analysis which is distilled into guidance for all stakeholders as they transform their initial vision into built reality. In particular, the book challenges the technical focus of existing design guides for the Performing Arts by suggesting that current practice in briefing and design does not serve the Arts community especially well. It shows that there is a need for an approach in which the focus is firmly rooted in the delivery of the driving artistic vision. As well as being of interest to architects, urban designers and those involved in theatre studies, this book will be useful to other sectors where public money is spent on major building projects.
