Skanska will also install mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering services in the 25-storey commercial project, due to start construction soon and complete early in 2023. Currently, the existing buildings are being demolished in advance of construction commencing.
The scheme consists of 38,900m² of office space and 1,094m² of ground level retail space.
The project includes the creation of a double-height entrance and lobby along Ropemaker Street close to Moorgate tube station and a separate dedicated cycle entrance. A single storey of business space will be located at mezzanine level within the ‘street block’.
Steve Holbrook, Skanska Managing Director, Building said: “We are delighted to win this contract and to welcome Great Elm as a customer. The project is aiming to achieve BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ and WELL Building Standard v2 – Platinum and we will use innovative construction techniques to help the client realise this ambition.
“Our innovative approach enables us to deliver better and more effective projects for customers and we look forward to working with our customer to achieve this on Ropemaker Street.”
