UK-based construction and consultancy firm Mace has been appointed by AlloyMtd Group to provide pre-construction services for the redevelopment of One Crown Place in East London, UK.
Under the contract, Mace will design and procure the sub-contractor packages — the first part of a two-stage construction process.
One Crown Place development was designed by architects Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) and will feature two residential towers, with 246 apartments, located above a podium office building.
The office space will be housed in two buildings: a new podium building and the refurbished 54 Wilson Street building, providing 11,150sq m and 1,900sq m of net floor area respectively.
The Sun Street Georgian terraces will accomodate a hotel and leisure/restaurant space of about 2,000sq m of net area. Additionally, the project will include ground floor retail space.
Mace’s chief operating officer for construction Gareth Lewis said: “I’m delighted that Mace has been appointed to deliver this prestigious mixed-use scheme for AlloyMtd in the heart of the financial district.
“It’s a complex and challenging project and we will be drawing upon our extensive experience in this field to create a high-value, high-rise development that leaves a lasting legacy for London.”
Site preparation works are underway, with piling due to commence in March 2017. The One Crown Place development is expected to be complete in 2020.
