Bank job for Harrington


PC HARRINGTON has taken a £20 million package for concrete works on the new Barclays Bank headquarters building at Canary Wharf.

The firm saw off competition from Byrne Brothers and O'Rourke for the package to carry out all concrete work at the 150 m-high, 34-storey office block known as BP1.

Enabling works and site clearance for the job started late last year, but it is understood that Harrington will not start work until later in the summer. Canary Wharf Contractors is responsible for the remainder of the work.

The 92,000 sq m building is scheduled for completion by 2004. Barclays will take up to two thirds of it, with the remainder available for other tenants.
