Big names to fight it out for mixed use scheme on the Thames
Four contractors have been invited to tender for the £100 million revamp of Sea Containers House on London’s South Bank, Construction News understands.
Southwark Council planning committee last month approved plans for the 45,866 sqm mixed-use scheme, designed by Warren TP Bennett.
The scheme, for developer Archlane, extends and refurbishes the building, creating a 358-bedroom hotel and 28,000 sqm of office space split between the existing building and a nine-story extension.
Construction is expected to start on site in January 2012 and is due to complete at the end of 2013.
