Canary Wharf Group confirmed today that main construction work on site has now started with Kone winning the elevator package on the 500,000 sq ft building and Seele the cladding.
Contracts to be awarded later this year include structural steel and mechanical and electrical packages.
The architects are Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. Construction of the shell, core and fit out is being undertaken by Canary Wharf Contractors Limited.
The building is set for completion in late 2014 and 250,000 sq ft has been pre-let to the European Medicines Agency.
The balance of the space will be marketed by Canary Wharf Group as construction progresses.
John Pagano, Managing Director of Development at Canary Wharf Group said: “25 Churchill Place will provide a major boost to the local economy, in terms of jobs and contracts and retaining yet another world-class organisation in central London.”
