Construction firm Lendlease has been selected by the Internet giant Google to construct its new headquarters at King’s Cross in London, UK.
Designed by Heatherwick Studios and BIG, in partnership with BDP, the new 10-storey building will accommodate 4,000 employees when completed.
Google’s EMEA director of real estate and construction Joe Borrett said: “Lendlease emerged from a rigorous selection process as the best choice as our construction partner at King’s Cross because we felt it shared many of our own values, a desire to challenge industry norms, a focus on innovation, and a highly collaborative approach.”
Neil Martin, managing director of Lendlease’s Construction business in Europe, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be appointed by Google on this landmark project. With our global construction experience, we are confident this will be as distinctive as everything else Google does.”
Based in Sydney, Australia, Lendlease has about 12,000 employees across the globe. The company’s regional head offices are located in New York, Singapore and London.
