Mace has been appointed as main contractor to deliver the 727,000 sq ft first phase of the Victoria Circle scheme, as part of the continued transformation of Victoria.

The £380 million contract is the result of almost two years project preconstruction advice alongside the delivery of utility diversions, enabling works and appointment as CDM Co-ordinator.

Construction is due to start in June and will take place over the next four years. The first phase offers 480,000 sq ft of efficient, high quality office accommodation, 80,000 sq ft of retail/restaurant space and 170 luxury modern apartments within three architecturally striking buildings, at the heart of a new, pedestrianized, landscaped public quarter.

Mace has a long-standing relationship with Land Securities Group PLC and experience in working within the company’s property portfolio across London, which include design and build contracts for developments at 123 Victoria Street and Park House on Oxford Street.

Stephen Pycroft, Executive Chairman of Mace said: “I am delighted that Land Securities has chosen to appoint Mace, once again, to deliver what will become one of London’s most significant developments. Victoria Circle is a complex project due to its proximity to vital transport links but I am confident that the team will demonstrate the expertise that Land Securities has come to expect from us and deliver a major development for London.”
