Spotlight on London Project Management 

The London project management team have been keeping extremely busy recently. We’ve had new recruits, new jobs and existing projects reaching important milestones.

Just completed is a new Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) building for Kingston University housing state-of-the-art laboratories which required major plant works. The next phase of work for the client will see the construction of teaching space and an outreach centre and there’s major works on the way to the District Heating Main an important contributor to the University’s carbon reduction target.

Work continues up at Leavesden Studios where the fast-paced movie world continues to be just that, whilst at Kings College Hospital the helipad is finished and the steel frame for the critical care unit that is being built over an existing theatre block is going up.

Other current projects include a refurbishment of Clarins’ London headquarters and remodelling of an office building in Chancery Land for Aberdeen Asset Management.

For more information about these, or our project management capability more generally, please contact Adam Robinson.
