Sir Robert McAlpine has been selected to construct a dual high-rise, mixed-use development, 2 Finsbury Avenue (2FA), at the Broadgate campus in London, UK.  

A joint venture between British Land and GIC appointed the construction and civil engineering company for this project. 

British Land Development head David Lockyer said: “Our longstanding and collaborative relationship with Sir Robert McAlpine has delivered fantastic buildings for us at Broadgate, so we are delighted to be working with them to deliver this iconic new building at the campus.  

“2FA will set a new standard for workspace in London and is further proof of the continued demand for world-class, sustainable workspace in well-connected locations.” 

Scheduled for completion in 2027, the development will stand at 170m and encompass 750,000ft². 

It will feature a 21-storey West office tower and a 36-storey East office tower.

The two towers will be connected by a 12-storey podium that includes green spaces, leisure facilities, and publicly accessible areas. 

Specifically, a single-storey Winter Garden on the 13th floor will link the two structures. 

In addition, the office spaces, designed by 3XN Architects and sustainability consultant GXN, will integrate green terraces and areas to promote collaboration and socialising. 

The new development will operate entirely on electricity and incorporate smart technology to achieve energy efficiency.  

The project is aiming for Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) Outstanding, WELL Platinum, WIRED Platinum, NABERS 5-star, and Energy Performance Certificate ‘A’ certifications. 

McAlpine Buildings executive managing director Grant Findlay said: “We are thrilled to be delivering another world-class building for British Land and GIC.  

“2 Finsbury Avenue is the sixth scheme in the Broadgate framework, following the multi-award-winning 100 Liverpool St and 1 Broadgate projects.” 

Last month, the University of Bristol in the UK signed a contract with McAlpine for the construction of its new Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus.
