WCN Editorial Team 7 Jul 2021 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Property development and investment firm British Land has appointed McLaren Construction as the main contractor for the second phase of Aldgate Place development in London, the UK.

The development is a 136,000ft2 residential led, mixed‐use scheme which will be located on London’s City fringe.

It is situated near Aldgate East and halfway between Crossrail stations at Liverpool Street and Whitechapel.

The second phase building will include 159 premium build-to-rent apartments, 19,000ft2 of office space and 8,000ft2 of retail and leisure space.

Aldgate Place will also be a net zero carbon development with embodied carbon of around 620kg CO2e per square metre.

Under the contract, McLaren will work on the design of the project which will involve upgrade to public realm.

McLaren Construction Major Projects managing director John Butten was quoted by constructionenquirer as saying: “We are immensely proud of the strong and professional relationship we share with British Land.

“Our mutual understanding and shared values have seen our project portfolio grow progressively over the last 13 years, when we’ve delivered 26 varied projects.

“We’re very excited to embark on our 27th project for British Land, starting later this year. Aldgate Place is an excellent showcase project for McLaren Construction.”

Butten further added that the project demonstrates the company’s speciality in delivering residential as well as mixed‐use schemes with complexities.

In May this year, the company started work on a new service hub for West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) in Sandwell, the UK.

Property developer Stoford is delivering the 76,000ft2 purpose-built hub, which will house about 350 operational ambulance staff working 24 hours a day.
