Scheme involves overhauling former Goldman Sachs HQ on Fleet Street

Mace has been confirmed as winner on its largest fit-out scheme in the past decade with a job to revamp the former headquarters of US bank Goldman Sachs in the City of London.

The value of Mace’s deal for investor Broadwater Capital is thought to be north of £70m and is a coup for the firm which is cementing its place as the biggest fit-out firm after the runaway big two of Overbury and ISG.


The scheme is set to receive its first tenants by summer 2024

Goldman Sachs swapped Peterborough Court on Fleet Street for a new HQ called Plumtree Court around the corner three years ago. That scheme on Farringdon Street was built by Multiplex and designed by KPF.

Mace is overhauling Peterborough Court under a £120m plan to create 292,000 sq ft of grade A workspace and ground floor retail across 11 floors. The scheme is slated for occupation by summer 2024 with CBRE and JLL joint leasing agents.

Work will involve transforming entrances on Fleet Street and Shoe Lane, along with new frontages, a long gallery entrance with new glazing and redesigned interiors.

Others working on the job include architect John Robertson Architects, project and cost manager Gardiner & Theobald and structures and lighting consultant BDP.

The scheme at 133 Fleet Street is a stone’s throw from 120 Fleet Street, an office scheme being developed on part of the old Goldman Sachs headquarters which was won over the summer by Lendlease – beating Mace into second place – in a see-saw battle for developer CO-RE.

Mace is already on site with the £350m Justice Quarter contract further up Fleet Street after Keltbray finished demolition work. Designed by Eric Parry, the scheme is due to finish in 2026.
