Multiplex has been chosen by Northcare as the preferred bidder for the £400m design and build contract to redevelop a previous New Scotland Yard location in Westminster, London, UK.

The Broadway development scheme secured its planning consent in 2016.

This 1.72-acre mixed-use development will feature six towers rising from 14 to 20 storeys, offering 268 apartments, 142,000ft² of commercial and retail space.

The scheme will also have a new thoroughfare connecting Victoria Street to St James’s Park tube station.

The towers will provide views of The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, St James’s Park, Horse Guards Parade and Green Park.

“This is a major milestone for the project and demonstrates our commitment to delivering a world-class, vibrant destination.”

Squire+Partners has designed the Broadway development with Robert Bird Group chosen as the structural engineer and Keltbray to deliver enabling works and piling package for the site.

Multiplex won the contract, beating Skanska following a nine-month single-stage competitive tender process.

Northacre development director for Broadway David Harman said: “We are delighted to announce the selection of Multiplex as our preferred main contractor to deliver this landmark development in central London.

“This is a major milestone for the project and demonstrates our commitment to delivering a world-class, vibrant destination located in one of the capital’s most exciting areas.

“We look forward to working alongside Multiplex to realise our vision and see them forge ahead with construction. To date, all milestones have been delivered ahead of programme, from securing planning consent in 2016, completing demolition of the existing 1960’s 22-storey building in 2017 and more recently finishing the piling phase in June 2018.”

Multiplex will begin work by next January and the project is expected to complete in December 2021.
