Developer Helical along with its joint venture partner Ashby Capital has appointed UK-based firm Mace as its construction partner to construct a new office project in Farringdon, UK.

The 200,000ft² office scheme, known as 33 Charterhouse Street, is located next to Farringdon Station, opposite the future Museum of London.

It will offer more than 10 floors of technology-enhanced office space, including three terraces and extensive views across central London.

Upon completion in September 2022, 33 Charterhouse Street is due to become one of the first smart buildings in Farringdon.

It will feature an integrated digital platform that will enhance the operational efficiency of the building and support the workspace wellbeing experience for its occupiers, through an employee engagement app.

33 Charterhouse Street’s design was awarded the UK’s first BREEAM 2018 new construction rating of ‘Outstanding’.

Mace said that it will implement several sustainable measures such as low carbon materials like ‘Earth Friendly Concrete’.

The project will also include design measures such as a connection to Citigen’s district energy network to supply heating and cooling demand, solar PV panels and a bio-diverse green roof.

Mace Construction CEO Gareth Lewis said: “We are excited to take on the delivery of 33 Charterhouse Street for Helical plc.

“The project marks the continuation of our collaborative working relationship, and we are delighted to be the contractor of choice. The scheme’s challenges play to our strengths and Mace is committed to delivering an exceptional office space at 33 Charterhouse Street.”

33 Charterhouse Street represents Mace’s third project delivering for Helical. Other projects include Kaleidoscope, a commercial building, and One Bartholomew Close, an office scheme.

Helical senior development executive Pavlos Clifton said: “We are delighted to work with Mace on our third project to deliver 33 Charterhouse Street.

“The team’s experience and track record in building smart, sustainable developments is aligned with Helical’s own commitment to service excellence, sustainability and driving innovation.”
