Contractor to deliver prestigious new Bonhams HQ
Knight Harwood has pipped rival contractors to a contract to build the new home of Bonhams auction house on New Bond Street, Construction News understands.
The total scheme is estimated to be worth around £30 million with Knight Harwood’s construction contract worth around £10m.
The contractor will build three salesrooms, preview galleries, a cafe and new workspace.
Plans were designed by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands.
Gardiner and Theobold is managing the project and Mott MacDonald is acting as mechanical and electrical consultant.
Bonhams – which has been trading since 1793 – hopes its expansion plans will help it compete with the likes of famous rivals Christie’s and Sotheby’s.
