McGee secures phase two ex-Royal Horse Artillery contract
25 October 2023
Specialist engineering contractor McGee has been appointed as principal contractor for the next phase of works at major residential redevelopment in St John’s Wood, London.
The UK-based company, which was previously appointed to deliver asbestos removal, demolition and enabling works, has subsequently been appointed to deliver the next phase of integrated specialist activities. This will see the company undertake the expanded excavation and piling works, as well the installation of bearings on a five-acre basement.
Seb Fossey, Managing Director of McGee, said: “The whole McGee team are incredibly proud and excited to have been appointed to deliver the next phase of this major super-prime scheme, building on the relationship and trust earned with the client team.
Throughout the demolition and enabling works, we’ve shown our passion and ability to deliver on our commitments. We look forward to continuing this collaborative approach throughout the rest of this prestigious project.”
The 2.2-hectare site, which served as headquarters for the Royal Horse Artillery until 2012, is located in the heart of St John’s Wood between Finchley Road and Primrose Hill. The site is being transformed into a high-quality residential development that will provide around 120 private homes and 59 affordable rental apartments.
Gareth Stow, Chief Operating Officer for St John’s Wood Square Limited, said: “We selected McGee after a competitive process based on their team, technical response to a complex build, attention to detail and strong track record. We are looking forward to working on the next stage of the project with McGees, following their successful demolition works, to deliver a significant basement contract.”
