Willmott Dixon to build new City & Guilds office in London

Willmott Dixon has won a deal, believed to be worth around £10m, to build a new office for City & Guilds at Clerkenwell in London.

The contractor will demolish a six storey building behind a retained façade at 5-7 Giltspur Street to keep the building’s character while providing 4,650 sq m of new office space behind the frontage.

The deal will see Willmott renovate a vacant property that was previously a mixed development comprising of a public house, apartments and offices.

The City & Guilds project sees Willmott Dixon construct a steel-frame seven storey building behind the 1920’s era façade to provide modern offices with latest IT infrastructure and contemporary lay-out.

It also includes fit-out to Cat A and Cat B standards, with work set to complete in October next year.

Current London commerical deals for Willmott Dixon include fitting-out new retail space over four floors for leading fashion brand McQ in Dover Street and creating a new spa for the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge. 

Other Willmott Dixon projects in the capital include the £86million Woolwich Central for Tesco develop Spen Hill and new estate regenerations in Bermondsey and Tottenham.
