Mace has been picked by Sellar and Real Estate Management (REM) to build the 26-storey Shard Place.
The contractor will serve as construction manager for the project, which is the final in a “trilogy” of towers designed by architect Renzo Piano on the site adjacent to London Bridge station.
The scheme will include 148 residential apartments and feature a roof garden on the 16th floor.
According to REM, the tower will be raised above ground level and set back from the road at St Thomas Street, providing additional retail space and an extended public realm.
Mace will provide full construction management services for Shard Place including the delivery of the shell and core, the fit-out of the apartments, all associated MEP services, residential amenities and the public realm.
The value of the contract has not been disclosed.
Mace chief operating officer for construction Gareth Lewis said: “Mace has worked on almost every element of Shard Quarter – from building the Shard itself to the News Building and the new station concourse.
“The fantastic proposals for Shard Place will complete this transformation and our appointment to deliver the final jewel in the crown following a competitive tender process feels very special.
“The enduring relationships that Mace builds with its clients are vital to its long-term success.
“After 11 years, our record at London Bridge is a real testament to our commitment to delivering on behalf of our clients.”
