McLaren Construction has been awarded a £9.8m high end residential scheme for Wrenbridge and Legal & General JV on Tufton Street in the heart of Westminster, London. The project comprises a refurbishment of an existing six storey office building to provide 22 high quality residential apartments, with concierge facilities.

The work comprises demolition of the existing mansard roof structure and southwest corner, together with internal structural modifications on all floors. Furthermore, rebuilding of the southwest corner (with an enlarged floor-plate), a new steel-framed two-storey mansard roof, replacement windows and full internal fit out. The mansard roof will accommodate three spacious duplex penthouses with bespoke feature staircases.

Wren bridge Managing Director Peter Jarman said: “We are very excited to be starting on site with this high quality development and looking forward to delivering a successful project with McLaren as our construction partner.”

Phil Pringle, Managing Director, McLaren Construction also commented. “We are extremely pleased to have secured this project, which increases our profile in the high end residential sector in London Zone 1. We look forward to working closely with both Wrenbridge and Legal & General to deliver this scheme in line with their expectations and to reinforce the confidence they have shown by awarding McLaren the contract.”

This adds to McLaren’s strong London portfolio and continued relationship with Legal & General.

Works commence in April and are due for completion in April 2015.
