Mace and Laing O’Rourke working on first two phases

Concrete firm Reddington and M&E contractor NG Bailey are among the firms to have won work on a scheme to redevelop a stretch of land next to the US embassy at Nine Elms in south London.

Last September, Mace won the first phase of work at the Nine Elms Square project which will see it build three towers for Chinese developer R&F Properties under a management contract.

The first phase has a gross development value of £480m with the entire Nine Elms Square scheme set to consist of 12 buildings and close to 2,000 homes.

Laing O’Rourke has been lined up for the second phase of a scheme. It is understood to be worth around £80m and involves building a 12-storey luxury residential scheme under a design and build deal.

Reddington and NG Bailey will carry out work on both phases while Chinese cladding firm Yuanda is also working on the first two stages. The firm is carrying out work on Multiplex’s One Nine Elms project, next door to Nine Elms Square, which involves two towers of 56 and 42 storeys.

Designed by US architect SOM, the three towers Mace is building will range from 36 to 54 storeys and will provide 880 apartments running across 11,555 sq m. SOM is also behind the second phase.

Other firms working on the both phases of the scheme include M&E consultant Hoare Lea, facades consultant Arup and cost and project manager Turner & Townsend.
