Scheme is latest building at Renzo Piano’s Shard Quarter at London Bridge

Shard Place

Mace has been confirmed as construction manager on the third building in Renzo Piano’s Shard Quarter development at London Bridge.

Shard Place will be the second of the so-called Shardettes and replaces a former 1950s office block Fielden House on London Bridge Street adjacent to The Shard and the other Shardette, The News Building.

The scheme is expected to have a construction pricetag of £120m and is set to be completed in 2020.

Designed by the Italian architect’s practice Renzo Piano Building Workshop, will house 148 apartments, many with naturally ventilated winter gardens, and feature a roof-top garden on the 16th floor.

Mace, which was tipped for the role by Building back in May, will provide full construction management services for the scheme, including the delivery of the shell and core, the fit out of the apartments, all associated MEP services, residential amenities and the public realm.

Dan Pearson Studio, which was awarded a Gold Award at the 2015 Chelsea Flower Show, has also been appointed to design the landscaping for both the public realm and Shard Place.

Developer on the scheme is Sellar and Real Estate Management.

The wider project team includes Aecom as project manager and quantity surveyor and WSP as the structural engineer.
