Carillion wins London resi contracts worth combined £134m

Carillion has bagged a £91m contract to build the first phase of Helical Bar’s Bart’s Square scheme in the City of London.

Construction on the former Bart’s Hospital site will begin in the summer and is due to be completed by summer 2017.

Phase one will feature residential, office and mixed-use facilities across the 0.93 ha site.

Planning permission for the site was granted back in November 2012, with work originally slated to begin in late 2014.

Carillion also today revealed it has won a £33m contract from residential developer St George Central London.

The contractor will build 177 new flats at the Beaufort Park scheme in north London, being developed for Notting Hill Housing Association to provide affordable housing.

“Winning these prestigious contracts builds on the strong, high-quality order book we have in our UK construction services business,” said Carillion chief executive Richard Howson.

“We are delighted to be working with Helical Bar and St George on these projects and share their vision of not simply constructing buildings, but helping to create communities in which people enjoy living.  

“We also remain committed to working with local suppliers and to creating jobs through these projects, by recruiting local people wherever possible and we will also be offering opportunities for young people who are training as apprentices with Carillion.”
