Vinci to develop £16.5m scheme at Walthamstow station

Vinci has been awarded a £16.5 million contract to build a mixed-use scheme at Walthamstow Central Station in London.

Solum Regeneration, a joint venture between Network Rail and Kier Property, has awarded Vinci Construction UK the contract which will include a new Travelodge Hotel.

The scheme will also see the development of 69 new buildings including new affordable homes and retail units.

Vinci Constuction UK building south managing director Gavin Taylor said: “This is an exciting and challenging contract win for Vinci Construction UK. It is yet another great opportunity for us to utilise our expertise in a prominent London location.

“We will be working in partnership with Solum Regeneration to ensure that the scheme is finished to the highest standard.”

Meanwhile the new £45m south terminal security area at Gatwick Airport has been unveiled by transport minister of state Therese Villiers.

Vinci’s air division completed the scheme, which includes 19 new security lanes which are set to reduce processing times per passenger to an estimated five minutes.

Vinci Construction UK’s air division operations director Jason Griffiths said: “We are delighted and proud to work on this prestigious Gatwick flagship project.  The team have managed to deliver a quality product, amidst significant challenges, by working as an integrated team with the client.”

Gatwick Airport director of capital projects hailed the £45m scheme as “an exceptional performance, achieved by teams working together, rising to the challenge and delivering a single objective”.
