Harry Neal takes its biggest deal yet


LONDON builder Harry Neal is set to secure one of its biggest-ever deals.

The Camden-based family company has pipped major rival Galliford Try in the race to secure a £27 million deal in the City of London.

The scheme, for Therese House Investments, will see a nine-storey student accommodation block built at a former BT office building on Glasshouse Yard.

General Demolition is currently on site, knocking down the existing eight-storey block located near St Bart's hospital.

Architect TP Bennett designed the scheme to incorporate 250 student accommodation units, which will be privately owned and available for any students in the area.

Harry Neal is currently in final negotiations with the client and construction work is anticipated to start in August.
