Thames Water

Thames Water plans to tackle leakage and reduce water consumption in London by lowering pressure in parts of the city. Currently all 80 zones have water pumped into them at the same pressure but the water company wants to tailor this to the geographical profile of the zone and type of building supplied. Consultations with local authorities are under way.

Consultant High-Point Rendel will oversee work to transform part of Beirut. The firm has won a £22M contract to turn the war-torn city's western marina into a modern complex incorporating a yacht club, restaurants and apartments.

The project, due for completion in late 2006, will be linked to a 50-storey apartment block by a pedestrian underpass.
