McLaren has won a £40.8m contract with Viridis Real Estate to build a commercial development in central London.
Work includes the demolition of the existing building at 119 Farringdon Road, which was the former headquarters of the Guardian, and the construction of a 100,000 sq ft office and retail building.
McLaren Construction London divisional director David Osborne said: “It is an absolute privilege to be engaged on a second project with Viridis Real Estate, for their client investor – a true testament to the valued working relationship developed between McLaren and Viridis on the Chancery Lane scheme.
“Working closely with the Viridis team to deliver this iconic building, designed by AHMM, will be a real pleasure and something that both the McLaren team and me personally are looking forward to.”
This is the second commercial project McLaren has bagged with the client, as it nears completion an office development on Chancery Lane this year. The Farringdon Road project started on site in July 2016 and is due to finish Q4 2018.
