Skanska has won a fixed-price design-and-build contract for a £45m office and retail scheme in London.

Derwent London is the developer on the 9,800 sq m Copyright Building, which has been designed by Piercy & Company.

The ground floor will provide 1,850 sq m of retail space with 7,950 sq m of offices across seven floors with two floors of roof terraces.

The developer is targeting a BREEAM Excellent standard, using sustainable approaches throughout the construction phase and installing solar panels on the building’s green roof.

Skanska said it had put together a specialist in-house team to install and commission chilled plasterboard ceilings, which it said were new to the UK, to all of the seven upper floors.

Skanska managing director Paul Heather said: “We are delighted to have been awarded our first project for Derwent London, a developer which Skanska has wanted to work with for many years. We look forward to developing our working relationship through the successful delivery of the Copyright Building.”

Derwent London head of development Richard Baldwin said: “We are very pleased to have appointed Skanska as the main contractor on the Copyright Building. Together we will deliver a first-class office and retail scheme in one of London’s most attractive areas.”

Works are expected to be completed in autumn 2017.
