Bouygues UK Limited has been appointed to work on the new civic centre in Whitechapel for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
Construction is due to begin later this year with a completion date of autumn 2021.
Bouygues UK will be working closely with the council throughout the pre-construction stage of the project to fully plan, price and programme the refurbishment and construction works required to create the new building. Bouygues UK is the preferred contractor for the construction of the building although this will be confirmed on completion of the pre-construction work.
John Biggs, Mayor of Tower Hamlets, commented:
“We’re pleased to have appointed Bouygues UK to work with us to deliver a new town hall for the borough’s residents. We look forward to working in partnership with the company to develop our plans.”
Fabienne Viala, Chairman of Bouygues UK, added:
“We have an excellent relationship with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, having built a number of schools across the area. It is great to be continuing that relationship by creating a new town hall that will provide a high-quality working environment for council staff and improved facilities for the local community.”
