McLaren will build a new development on plot W03 to provide circa 30,000 m2 of residential and retail space. The mixed-use project comprises of two blocks, one of 10 storeys and the second of 15 storeys. The blocks include 340 build-to-rent units with associated common spaces and ground floor retail units. Construction works include reinforced concrete frame, brickwork façade with offsite prefabricated bathroom pods as well as external works including a new roadway.
McLaren has also signed a contract for early works and pre-construction services agreement on the W06 plot, directly next to W03.
W06 will comprise of the re-alignment of a section of road known as Perimeter Way West and includes installation of underground services below it. McLaren will also install temporary sheet piling and load bearing piling for the future residential and commercial buildings on the plot.
These will be the first jobs that McLaren has done for Quintain. The developments’ completion dates are phased throughout 2018 and 2019.
Quintain construction director Matt Voyce said: “We are delighted to have concluded the contract for W03. Our 85 acre development at Wembley Park is set to become the largest single build to rent site in the UK and seeing it evolve over the last decade has been a real privilege. We look forward to working with McLaren on these two pivotal plots adjacent to the National Stadium.’’
McLaren Major Projects regional managing director John Butten said: “Following the successful appointment to Quintain’s contractor framework, we are extremely pleased to be awarded this project next to Wembley Stadium. Our commitment and dedication working with Quintain and the design consultants to achieve success has been rewarded by the further appointment to a PCSA stage on the adjoining plot which is due to be awarded later this year. We are looking forward to constructing this prestigious project working with Quintain and in close coordination with the stadium for logistics purposes and in conjunction with the other contractors working on the framework at Wembley Park.”
