Red Construction Group has landed a £31m redevelopment job on Pall Mall in London.
The group’s London team will oversee the creation of a 3,271 square metre scheme at 55 Pall Mall in St James’s (pictured). The scheme will include seven stories plus a basement and ground floor, with terraces on the fifth, sixth and seventh floors.
Existing buildings will be demolished to basement level to make way for the new development, which is to include retail units and office accommodation.
The Pall Mall facade will be retained and renovated, with sections dismantled for cleaning and storage before reinstallation, while the massing and facade materials have been designed to blend into the surrounding area.
Embodied carbon is to be minimised through the reuse of the existing foundations and basement and the incorporation of cross-laminated timber floor slabs.
Tony O’Farrell, operations director at Red Construction London, said the redevelopment would draw on the team’s experience in the retention and restoration of heritage features.
Red’s London portfolio includes the development of the Ruby Lucy Hotel at Waterloo, a residential conversion and extension in SW12 and the restoration of a mixed-use development in Soho.
The firm is also delivering the £15.1m redevelopment of an office building in Richmond formerly known as Eton House.
