Knight Harwood tipped for Bond Street auction house

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 company saw off competition from ISG and Sir Robert McAlpine after Bam Construct was knocked out before Christmas.

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.
