Heather Church - December 16, 2014

Mace has been appointed construction manager on the 811-home first phase of the massive Royal Wharf regeneration scheme in east London.

Mace will oversee construction of the phase as part of the overall masterplan for 3,385 apartments and town houses, retail space, cafes, a school, restaurants and a gymnasium.

The firm was appointed by Singaporean developer Oxley and Ballymore.

Mace’s chief operating officer for construction, Gareth Lewis, said: “As London continues to grow, major residential projects such as Royal Wharf are key to ensuring this city maintains its status as a major international hub, providing the essential space and infrastructure to support its growth. We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to work on such an exciting project, which will not only meet this demand but will provide a vital economic boost to East London.”

Oxley chief executive, Ching Chiat Kwong, said: “We are looking forward to seeing Royal Wharf transform and rejuvenate the Royal Docks area, and help to make this location one of the most exciting places to live and work.”

Mace’s residential business unit director, Simon Underwood, said: “Mace, in its role as construction manager, has taken on some of the largest residential appointments in London over the last few years and it is great to be given yet another opportunity to further shape this city. We look forward to working alongside the site’s developer, Oxley.”
