McLaren Construction has been awarded three contracts on a £41m mixed-use scheme in Waltham Forest, East London.

McLaren managing director Phil Pringle said: “We are delighted to have been appointed on this scheme by Spenhill Regeneration Ltd.  This project presents the opportunity to make a valuable contribution to the development pipeline in East London and to inward investment in the region and corporately, sees us strengthening our existing experience in the mixed use and retail sectors.”
