McLaren awards Skanska £41m MEP London office deal

July 14, 2017
McLaren Construction Group has awarded Skanska the MEP package to deliver the commercial fit-out of New Bracken House office building in the City of London – Aaron Morby

McLaren won the complete refurbishment and fit-out of the New Bracken House office building, which will become the new home of the Financial Times,  three months ago.

The £41m MEP package contract includes replacement of interior services and facilities across all nine floors.

Skanska will deliver the mechanical and electrical engineering, plumbing and heating installations for both the shell and core and category A and category B fit-out, as part of the building’s redevelopment by Obayashi Corporation.

Works have just started and will conclude mid-2018.

Bracken House was first occupied by the Financial Times newspaper until the 1980s when the company moved to Southwark.

The building was partly demolished in 1989 to incorporate the Michael Hopkins glass and steel façade that is evident today.
