A contract to redevelop 80,000 sq ft of grade A office space in the City of London has been awarded to Mace, Construction News understands.
Rockspring Property Investment Managers and Charterfield Asset Management appointed the contractor for the redevelopment of Centurion House, EC3 shortly before Christmas.
The total construction value for the project is thought to be worth in the region of £15 million.
The company saw off competition from rivals including Bam, Galliford Try, Sir Robert McAlpine and Volker Fitzpatrick.
McGee is already on site carrying out strip out and demolition work to the 10 storey structure, a short distance from Monument tube station.
Plans for the David Walker Architects designed redevelopment include two new ground floor retail units.
The existing building, which was acquired in December 2010, was originally built in the mid 1980’s and consists of 61,000 sq ft of outdated office accommodation.
It is hoped the new building will secure a BREEAM Excellent rating.
Mace is due to start on site shortly, with delivery targeted for Q2 2013.
