As well as UAL, the scheme will include new buildings for the BBC and Sadler’s Wells theatre

The firm will design, manufacture and install aluminium windows, spandrel panels, doors, screens and glazed skylights on levels four to 14 of the Allies and Morrison-designed building.

It is the latest package of work to be handed out at the scheme, after Belfast firm Portview won a £24m fit-out contract for the building last October.

The building’s structural frame, cores and roof works are being carried out by Laing O’Rourke subsidiary Expanded.

UAL’s existing London College of Fashion site is at John Prince’s Street just off Oxford Street and will move into its new Stratford premises once it is completed in 2022.

The wider Stratford Waterfront development, which is being project managed by Mace, includes new sites for Sadler’s Wells Theatre, the BBC and the Victoria & Albert museum.
