“We look forward to drawing on our extensive experience delivering high-quality projects in central London as we work in partnership with the City of London to support their estates strategy.”

Christopher Hayward, City of London planning and transportation committee chairman, explained that over the upcoming decade, there are plans to spend up to £2.3bn on four major capital projects, including; a new home for the Museum of London, an opera house on the museum’s current site, a relocation of Smithfield market and new court ad police buildings on Fleet Street.


Hayward states, “Those projects alone are the biggest capital programmes the city will have ever engaged in, which I think shows our confidence (in the city.)”

As this new framework takes off, London anticipates the output of this new construction scheme.
