Building Magazine tidbits
A quick news round-up (so you don't have to read the damn thing) of this week's Building Magazine. Nothing that exciting to report this week, I'm afraid.

The cover story is about students not getting paid properly, or at all, by high-profile architects. It's nothing that any architect won't be aware of and that we all join in condemning round the pub on Friday nights. But I'm not really sure that Building Magazine running four pages on it will really change a thing, I'm afraid...

Ed Balls's column is a rather odd ode to how great CABE is and its role in critiquing PFI projects. Seemingly this stems from him having commissioned Irena Bauman to do his house extension, and then finding out that she's a CABE commissioner. Whatever.

Keith Clarke, head of Atkins, is trying to get EU funding for R&D into construction technology and sustainability, among other things. Sounds pretty interesting, actually - the steering group for the application includes quite a few construction figures but also the architect Ian Ritchie and Terry Hill from Arup.

Foster and Partners are back in profit, so that'll mean his salary's going back up again...
