Project sees Southern region of business further strengthening Commercial portfolio following successful completion of Conduit Street project in Central London.

McLaren Construction is pleased to announce its appointment as main contractor for the major redevelopment of Belmont office scheme in the heart of Uxbridge on behalf of client, Aviva Investors.

Designed by TP Bennett, the £30 million pound contract will provide 210,888 (GIA) sq ft of prime office accommodation over four storeys including four passenger lifts and underground parking for 171 vehicles, accessible car parking bays, charging for electric vehicles, 116 cycle bays and associated shower and locker facilities.

The scheme includes stripping the existing facades back to the concrete frame, and the complete demolition of the central core area. These works will accommodate a new entrance and reception area, providing a new main focal point for the building.

The development will prove a technically  complex project as approximately a third of the building is being demolished with major strengthening works to the existing concrete frame that will enable additional accommodation to be added at roof level, increasing the floor area to 125,950 (NIA) sq ft.   The envelope is being re-clad with an innovative brick cladding system in addition to extensive areas of curtain walling and structural glazing. Along with the complete replacement of the building services and the introduction of green renewable technologies and a green roof will result in the building achieving a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.

McLaren started works on site in July and are currently on programme with piling to the central core to commence soon.

David Murphy, Regional Managing Director McLaren Construction – South said: “We are delighted to be working with Aviva Investors again to deliver this prestigious redevelopment in the heart of Uxbridge. Following a number of recent successful completions in the Commercial market we look forward to a successful Project for all concerned which in turn will further strengthen our Commercial portfolio.”
