Mace to assist with ‘planned transition’ to new contractor over next few months

Mace is stepping away from the giant Royal Wharf residential scheme in Docklands, east London, only months after being given the contract to deliver the first phase of the scheme.

Mace has reached an agreement with joint clients Oxley Developments and Ballymore to undertake a planned transition over the next few months to contractor Roundstone Construction Services, which will now deliver the remainder of the first phase and the second phase.

A joint statement by Mace and the developers said: “Oxley Developments and Ballymore have confirmed they are continuing with further phases at Royal Wharf, following the successful commencement of Phase 1 by Mace, which includes the completion of the pre-construction phase and procurement of the primary packages.

“This now provides a stable production plan for the delivery phase of the project, which will enable Roundstone Construction Services to deliver the remainder of Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the project. Mace will be undertaking a planned transition over the next few months and Oxley and Ballymore would like to thank Mace for their support to date.”

Mace won the contract to deliver the first 811-home phase of Royal Wharf in London’s Docklands in December.

At the time of the appointment Mace’s residential business unit director, Simon Underwood, said it was “great to be given yet another opportunity to further shape this city. We look forward to working alongside the site’s developer, Oxley”.

The overall Royal Wharf msterplan incorporates 3,000 apartments, town houses, a retail space with cafes and restaurants, a school and a gym.
