The Swedish construction group Skanska has been awarded a development contract that will see it establish new areas of eco-friendly office space in the City of London.
Development firm Bovis Marks issued the company with the £50 million contract and plans are in place for an array of sustainability-focused design features to be incorporated into the building.
The aim of those involved, including the architects at Fletcher Priest, is ultimately to deliver a BREEAM excellent rated development in the heart of London’s primary financial district.
Work on the City of London offices got under way immediately after the announcement of Skanska being awarded the contract, with the project scheduled for completion in the autumn of 2013.
Rainwater harvesting devices, a combined heat and power generator and energy saving light systems will all feature on the structure in the interest of improving sustainability performance, according to plans unveiled by the company newly contracted to carry out its construction.
“Credit must be given to all parties involved in this project for their persistence over the past months to ensure we have reached contract award,” said Paul Heather, managing director of Skanska’s Building London and the South East operating unit.
“We look forward to working with Fletcher Priest Architects and Waterman Structures/Services to deliver this BREEAM excellent building during 2013.”
Offices will account for the bulk of the floor space at the City of London site but it will be mixed use and also incorporate a number of retail outlets.
The site ear-marked for the project is just yards from the office building at 30 St Mary Axe, better known as the Gherkin, which was erected by Skanska between 2001 and 2003 and has since become one of the leading architectural icons in central London.
