McLaren Construction is pleased to announce two new major commercial projects within the City and Central London.

Worth £37.5 million, 25-32 Chancery Lane for Harrowwood Assets Limited (c/o Viridis Real Estate Services Ltd) will be a brand new eight storey commercial building including lower ground floor level with retail units fronting on to Chancery Lane. The Chancery Lane façade will be retained and restored as part of the redevelopment while other new elevations will be clad in specialist glazing and feature terracotta.

The second awarded project, 1 King William Street, valued at £28 million and based near Bank Station, for UD Europe Limited, a wholly-owned of NTT Urban Development Corporation (c/o Kajima Partnership Limited), is the former home to Rothchilds, who have now vacated and moved into their new signature International office beside the site. The 1997 extension, behind a 1920s Grade II listed building, will be 50% demolished from roof level to ground floor, leaving just a core structure. This will then be replaced with a new primary structure, which, when finished, will be clad in an impressive handmade brick.

Both schemes are situated in high profile locations within London and will accommodate a combined total of over 198,694 sq ft of office space for new occupiers.

Phil Pringle, Managing Director, McLaren Construction, commented: “These projects see us furthering our commercial project pipeline within key locations in London and we are very pleased to be working with Viridis Real Estate Services Limited and Kajima Partnership Limited. We look forward to establishing a successful working relationship with both of these important customers.”
