Work set to begin on Canary Wharf steel-framed office enlargement
Skanska has begun work on refurbishing and enlarging 30 South Colonnade, an 11-storey steel-framed commercial office building in east London’s Canary Wharf estate.
Working on behalf of its customer Quadrant and its joint-venture partner Oaktree Capital Management, Skanska will carry out extensive structural refurbishment of the existing building, add three new steel-framed floors and install new cladding.
To be known as YY London, the building is targeting BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating, while internally it will be fitted out to a Category A standard.
Skanska Managing Director Steve Holbrook commented: “Winning this contract is a great testament to the collaborative way of working the team adopted with our customer to deliver a transparent approach throughout the tender process.
“Their hard work to overcome any challenges meant they could find solutions that not only met the customer’s bespoke requirements, but will also deliver a modern, sustainable building located in the heart of the vibrant Canary Wharf community.”
