Work is due to start this month on the £55M Paddington Exchange mixed use scheme in London after Bouygues was appointed as main contractor by Taylor Wimpey Central London.

 

The 150 home project will transform a former car park into four residential blocks from eight storeys to 14 storeys high. Four new commercial units will also be included as part of the development.

 

The scheme is expected to take around two years to deliver and will be handed over to the client in three phases.

 

Taylor Wimpey Central London managing director Ingrid Skinner said: “This marks an exciting step forward for our Paddington Exchange development.

 

“It is one of the largest and most innovative projects in our portfolio and we are very much looking forward to getting construction underway.

 

“The appointment of Bouygues UK reflects our commitment to forging industry-leading partnerships to create genuinely high quality and sustainable new communities across Central London.”

 

Bouygues UK’s regional director for housing in London John Campion said: “This latest contract underlines our credentials and solid reputation for working with leading property developers in London.

 

“From our work in Bayswater on The Hempel Collection, to Pontoon Dock and Hallsville Quarter in Newham; from Queens Park Place in Brent to the Ice House Quarter in Barking and Dagenham, we’re working with local authorities and developers to deliver much-needed housing and regeneration for people right across the capital.”
