London Victoria’s defining moment
Nova, Victoria is an architecturally daring urban campus that delivers a new and vibrant destination for London. As main contractor we appreciate that the transformation of this 5.5 acre island site is the defining moment in Land Securities’ £2.2 billion re-invention of Victoria. Representing one of London’s most exciting mixed-use schemes in decades and already home to Channel 4, Microsoft and the Telegraph Media Group, we are providing certainty of delivery in what is an enviable task.
Our evolving role in evolving Victoria
We are responsible for delivering the 727,000 square feet first phase, comprising quality, sustainable offices, retail and restaurant space and luxury apartments. What is our approach? To provide value engineering and expert management that ensures certainty of delivery, implement innovative solutions and collaborate with our supply chain from the outset. This approach has led to us already taking six months off the initial target programme.
“I am delighted that Land Securities has chosen to appoint Mace, once again, to deliver what will become one of London’s most significant developments. Nova, Victoria is a complex project due to its proximity to vital transport links but I am confident that the team will demonstrate the expertise that Land Securities has come to expect from us and deliver a major development for London.”
Retaining history, shaping the future
The unique challenges on this project are endless. The Duke of York public house, the listed Victoria Palace Theatre, and Sutton House, built in 1535, will be all retained calling on all of our experience of sensitive construction in historic locations. The theatre and neighbouring businesses will also remain operational throughout the works, which will also utilise our expertise in planning and community liaison. Our experience of working in busy city locations has also been invaluable as works need to accommodate the 100 million people who pass through this busy transport hub. No mean feat but a challenge that we are embracing every step of the way.
