Last week Alumno along with HG Construction, invited stakeholders and guests including members from the Council, the University of East Anglia and the winner of our poetry competition to our Topping Out Ceremony at Benedicts Gate, Norwich. Benedicts Gate is our third development in Norwich, following All Saints Green and award winning Pablo Fanque House.

Founder and Managing Director David Campbell said a few words about the project: ‘This is a reasonably big structure, I think its a very poignant time and obviously its a chance for everyone here to offer support to the team as we have a long way to go, but we are in good hands going into the final third’.

Others to speak were Connor Rice from HG and Norwich Council Leader Alan Waters said ‘…. there are the remnants of the medieval castle wall, so that reminds us that in a historic city things change over time. This building is built on a number of settlements over a very long period of time.’

A member of the Alumno team was also lucky enough to climb the HG Crane to see the amazing views over Norwich.
