Hugh Broughton heads south again

The team of Hugh Broughton Architects and engineer Faber Maunsell, which designed the Halley VI station currently under construction, has won its second project in the Antarctic.

This time it is for the Spanish. Called Juan Carlos I, the new base will be in the South Shetland Islands. The client is Spain's National Research Council (CSIC), which has been operating a summer research station for the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation on Livingstone Island in Western Antarctica since 1988. It will replace the original station, which has now reached the end of its useful life.
