London developer Helical has picked Mace to deliver its £140m 33 Charterhouse Street office scheme next to Crossrail’s Farringdon Station.

Smart office scheme will be located next to the new Museum of London site

The site was cleared several years ago for the Crossrail station project and is now ready to be developed with an 11-storey 200,000sq ft office.

Helical is in joint venture with financier Ashby Capital to build the technology enhanced office space, including three terraces and extensive views across central London.

Set to become one of Farringdon’s first smart buildings, the scheme will feature an integrated digital platform that will improve the building’s operational efficiency and support the workspace wellbeing experience for its occupiers, through an employee engagement app.

Leading the way in sustainability, the design of 33 Charterhouse Street was awarded the UK’s first BREEAM 2018 new construction rating of ‘Outstanding’.

Mace’s team will apply its sustainability expertise to reduce the embodied carbon through a variety of measures including, low carbon materials such as ‘Earth Friendly Concrete’ and sustainable design measures such as a connection to Citigen’s district energy network to supply heating and cooling demand, solar PV panels and a biodiverse green roof.

It is the third project Mace is delivering for Helical. This follows Mace’s recent completion of the Kaleidoscope, a commercial building delivered on a complex island site, above Crossrail’s Farringdon East station and One Bartholomew Close offering 223,000 sq ft of flexible office space in the heart of the City.

33 Charterhouse Street is expected to complete in September 2022.

Gareth Lewis, CEO for Construction at Mace, said: “The project marks the continuation of our collaborative working relationship, and we are delighted to be the contractor of choice. The scheme’s challenges play to our strengths and Mace is committed to delivering an exceptional office space at 33 Charterhouse Street.”
