Balfour Beatty selected for luxury residential scheme in London
August 15, 2018 – International infrastructure group Balfour Beatty has been selected by Brockton Capital to deliver the new, luxury 60 Curzon Street residential scheme.
Located in the heart of London’s Mayfair district, Balfour Beatty will use its experience in operating within a constrained city-centre environment to deliver 32 luxury apartments around a south-facing courtyard garden, as well as a range of private 24-hour amenities.
Balfour Beatty will use the latest digital solutions, including Building Information Modelling (BIM), to generate and manage vital information on site and deliver the scheme with minimal disruption to local residents and the community.
Balfour Beatty CEO for UK Construction Services Dean Banks said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this key contract and to be part of 60 Curzon Street’s exciting development plans.
“Our selection to this project builds on our vast wealth of experience in delivering significant developments across the UK, including the No.1 Palace Street residential scheme overlooking Buckingham Palace.
“We look forward to continuing our work with Brockton Capital over the coming years, successfully delivering a new first-class residence and its associated facilities.”
Balfour Beatty has already begun work and the project is scheduled for completion in 2020. At construction peak, the project is expected to employ a workforce of 250.
The company finances, develops, builds and maintains complex infrastructure, including transportation, power and utility systems, social and commercial buildings.
Operating mainly in the UK and Ireland, the US and Far East, Balfour Beatty has created iconic buildings and infrastructure all over the world, including the London Olympics’ Aquatic Centre, Hong Kong’s first Zero Carbon building, the National Museum of the Marine Corps in the US and the Channel Tunnel Rail Link.
Major projects in the company’s London portfolio include East Wick & Sweetwater development to secure long-term urban regeneration benefits of the Olympics in partnership with the London Legacy Development Corporation; and the construction of 1,500 homes, including 450 affordable homes, in joint venture with Places for People.
In Canary Wharf, it is building The Madison, a £150m London Docklands residential tower; and a student housing project worth £180m for 2,117 students in 28 buildings for the University of Sussex.
