Swedish property company Skanska has won a contract worth £8 million to design and construct a mixed used development in Mayfair.

The project at 34-36 Bruton Street was awarded to Skanska by Lancer Property Asset Management.

It will see  the site’s existing properties demolished, barring the façades of the aforementioned buildings, and 13 Bruton Place. A four-storey London office building and a two-storey apartment block will be constructed in their place.

Once the buildings have been constructed, they will be finished with stock brick and Portland stone Рto match the fa̤ades retained from the original structures. Both the office space and apartments will be given a category A standard finish.

Paul Heather, managing director for Skanska’s Building, London and South East Operating Unit, spoke enthusiastically about the contract.

He stated: “Winning this contract is further proof of our ability to adapt to any size project, whether it is the tallest building in the City of London, a mixed-use development or an innovative solution that creates more space for our client.

“We are looking forward to working with the client to deliver a building they can be proud of now and in the future.”

Work on the project is scheduled to commence next month (August), and is set to be completed by December 2014.
