McAleer & Rushe handed £28m contract to convert Costain's old offices

19 Dec 14 Costain’s former London offices are to be demolished and rebuilt as a hotel apartment block.

Marlin Apartments has handed builders McAleer & Rushe a £28m design-and-build contract to demolish the 1950s-built Costain House near Waterloo station and put up a new building.

The new build element is a 14,566 m2 development at 111 Westminster Bridge Road comprising a 218-room apart-hotel, six office suites, a restaurant and adjoining retail.

It will be built from Portland Stone and brick. The development adjoins the Grade II listed Necropolis building at 121 Westminster Bridge Road, rising from seven stories at the front to 10 at the rear.

McAleer & Rushe Construction managing director Martin Magee said: “This is a very handsome, well located scheme which we are very proud to deliver.”
