Skanska has secured a contract to construct a commercial office building at Crown Place in central London, in the UK. The contract amounts to approximately €90 million (GBP 64 million), and will be included in order bookings for the fourth quarter of 2006. The client is Greycoat Crown Place Partnership.
The office building at 30 Crown Place will encompass 18 floors, 26,000 m² of office space and 600 m² of retail space, as well as parking at the basement level.
Curved glass facades will give the building a striking form.
Sustainability is a key element and geothermic and solar energy systems will supplement the building's power source.
Skanska UK, in cooperation with the client, has developed structural engineering solutions responding to the client's needs for everything from foundation to mechanical and electrical installations.
The project will begin immediately and is scheduled for completion in November 2008.
