WCN Editorial Team 17 Mar 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

A joint venture (JV) of Bouygues Travaux Publics and Cimolai has signed a construction contract with the Garden Bridge Trust to deliver the Garden Bridge project in London.

The JV’s scope of the work will include the completion of the detailed design, construction and planting the trees and shrubbery for the project, which is estimated to cost £175m. In April 2015, the JV won the contract for preconstruction services.

The project has been designed by Flint and Neil and Moxon Architects. Arup, Heatherwick Studio and Dan Pearson Studios will offer advice to the trust on the bridge design and construction.

Construction work on the project is expected to start in mid-2016 and will be completed in late 2018.

Garden Bridge Trust chairman Lord Mervyn Davies said: “The Garden Bridge is a reality. We are on course with our fundraising targets, we are meeting the requirements of our planning conditions.

“We have huge public support for the project and we look forward to working with Bouygues TP and Cimolai and all our partners to make this a special place to be enjoyed by Londoners and visitors in the heart of the city for years to come.”
