WCN Editorial Team 6 Jul 2021 EUROPE BUILDINGS

RED Construction has secured a contract from real estate firm Hines to deliver a new mixed-use retail and office project in the West End of London, the UK.

The project will transform an existing 32,500ft2 office and retail space, which has dual frontage, to 80 New Bond Street and 325 Oxford Street.

The scope of work under the contract involves comprehensive refurbishment along with part demolition and removal of the existing top floor as well as Dering Street wing.

The latter wing of the development will then be reconstructed, with two floors built on top of building, along with construction of two retail units on the ground and first floors.

Designed by Orms Architects, the project will provide 31,000ft2 of total office area with a dedicated, spacious reception area. The office entrance is planned to be repositioned on to Dering Street.

RED Construction stated that the building will be constructed to achieve BREEAM Outstanding rating with a BIM Level 2.

The refurbishment work on the mixed-use retail and office scheme is expected to be completed in the spring of 2023.

The structural alterations at 80 New Bond Street will include a complete renovation of internal steelwork.

RED Construction managing director Graham Sturge said: “80 New Bond Street is a momentous project win for the RED Construction team. The elements of this milestone scheme call on many of RED Construction’s technical specialities and capabilities, with its innovative pre-cast concrete features and a strong focus on sustainability measures.”

Other partners of the project include Price & Myers working as structural engineers, SWECO as MEP engineers, Rise as project manager and Gardiner & Theobald as PQS.
