Skanska has secured the £8m design-and-build deal for a mixed-use development in the exclusive Mayfair area of London.
The scheme at 34-36 Bruton Street, close to Berkeley Square, has been won under a single stage lump sum competitive tender and will comprise retail, office and residential apartments.
Work is due to start for client, Berkeley Square Holdings, in August 2013 and is scheduled to complete in December 2014.
Skanska said it will use its expertise and knowledge to incorporate sustainable solutions into the construction process, including:
- The efficient use of water and energy;
- A target of zero waste to landfill;
- The use of materials throughout the construction phase that have a zero impact on the environment;
- Mitigating the impact of its operations on ecosystems;
- Minimising the impact of its operations on water and land contamination.
Representing the client, Richard May of Lancer Property Asset Management said: “It was evident from the tender interviews that Skanska is a very professional contractor and the team put forward for this challenging project has the expertise to deliver high-quality within a tight programme.”
Skanska London and South-east operating unit managing director Paul Heather commented: “Winning this contract is further proof of our ability to adapt to any size project, whether it is the tallest building in the City of London, a mixed-use development or an innovative solution that creates more space for our client.
“We are looking forward to working with the client to deliver a building they can be proud of now and in the future.”
