Expanded Geotechnical in partnership with Erith and Morrisroe has been awarded a £40M contract for the piling and sub-structure contract for the Renzo Piano-designed Paddington Square development, London.
Piling is expected to commence at the beginning of April to around June 2020 when Mace will formally start construction of the main Paddington Square building, comprising a 33,445m² office building on 14 floors.
The substructure will cover new Bakerloo Line ticket hall together with retailing at the station concourse level.
Seller Construction director Paul Flexney-Briscoe said: “I want to thank all the companies that tendered for this contract. Everyone produced incredibly detailed bids and the final decision to award Erith the contract was extremely close.
“The process became a short list of two companies – the other being J Coffey, who produced an exceptional tender. In the end it came down to programme and logistics with Erith marginally ahead.”
Construction is expected to be completed during in 2022.
