Mace wins West End scheme

7 Jul 15 Mace has won a contract to replace two outdated office blocks in London’s West End with new retail and office space.

It was appointed by Exemplar, which is working in partnership with AshbyCapital, to deliver the £33m scheme at One Bedford Avenue.

One Bedford Avenue is scheduled for completion in early 2017 and has been designed by Bennetts Associates.

A BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating is being targeted for the commercial space and ‘Very Good’ in the retail units. Sustainable measures incorporated into the design include green roofs, photovoltaics and combined heat and power.

Exemplar’s founding director Clive Bush said, “Exemplar, together with our partners AshbyCapital, are excited to be working with Mace to deliver this landmark building in probably the most dynamic location in London. The development strengthens our investment in the area and helps underpin the unprecedented growth of Tottenham Court Road and the eastern end of Oxford Street.

Mace’s chief operating officer for construction Gareth Lewis said, “This is a fantastic project for Mace and we’re delighted to be working with Exemplar on another high quality, high profile development in London’s West End. With Crossrail due for completion shortly after One Bedford Avenue, the scheme will be a major new addition to the Tottenham Court Road area.”
