Engineering contractor named for ‘iconic’ Canary Wharf development

A specialist engineering firm has been named as the principal contractor for a redevelopment project on the Canary Wharf estate.

McGee has been appointed as the principal contractor for the first phase of the 30 South Colonnade redevelopment.

Specialising in high-profile and complex engineering projects, the firm will undertake key elements of the redevelopment including the soft-strip, structural demolition, façade removal, enabling and structural strengthening works to the 1980s steel frame building.

McGee will deliver the works on behalf of real estate developer Quadrant and its joint-venture partner, which is part of a complex demolition project including the removal of two storeys from the 62m tall building.

Seb Fossey, McGee group managing director, commented: “As specialists in London, we understand the scope, risks and constraints associated with the scheme which means we engineer the best possible method to deliver the works.

“Our operating model ensures that when procured early, we’re able to collaborate with key stakeholders, mitigate risk and save programme time in doing so.”
