Mace has been appointed by the City of London Corporation to build the Salisbury Square Development, a new civic hub in the heart of the historic Square Mile, following successful completion of a Pre-Construction Services Agreement (PCSA).
The scheme will create 150 direct construction jobs – and a further 80 jobs through the supply chain – and generate around £10 million Gross Value Added (GVA) per year during construction. Once operational, the GVA benefits are expected to rise to £51 million per annum.
“We are delighted to have been appointed to deliver this exciting scheme and play a part in the next phase of this thriving part of the historic Square Mile. There is no doubt that the Salisbury Square Development will play a leading role in the future of the City of London – and in policing across the UK – and we are honoured to have been entrusted with its construction,” said Gareth Lewis, CEO for Construction at Mace.
The unique and complex project, designed by Eric Parry Architects, will house a flagship legal facility for His Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) and a state-of-the-art headquarters for the City of London Police.
The new City of London Law Court forms part of a wider redevelopment scheme by the City of London Corporation that will also create a new City of London Police HQ. The scheme also includes a grade A commercial building, increased public realm and has strong sustainability credentials.
The new court will provide a total of 18 court rooms, an increase of 10 on the current position, with a focus on high-level fraud, cyber and economic crime. The development is on track for completion in 2026.
