Mace appointed main contractor on Fleet Street’s Peterborough Court, marking the company’s largest interiors project in a decade
Mace, the international consultancy and construction firm, has been appointed as the main contractor on the refurbishment of Fleet Street’s Peterborough Court, the largest interiors project for the Group in the past decade.
Construction has started on the landmark Fleet Street office development scheme, Peterborough Court, the former European headquarters of Goldman Sachs.
Peterborough Court, located at 133 Fleet Street, will be remodelled to create 292,000 sq ft of curated Grade A workspace and ground floor retail across eleven floors. The iconic property offers flexible floor plates of between 16,000 sq ft and 33,000 sq ft, with access to private terraces across four floors and public courtyard open space. The scheme will be available for occupation from Q2 2024. CBRE and JLL are joint leasing agents.
Peterborough Court features transformed Fleet Street and Shoe Lane building entrances, activated frontages, a long gallery entrance with new glazing, and redesigned interiors aligned to the highest sustainability standards, health and wellness and dual-feed, 100% ‘All-Electric’ technology.
The building will target green building certification BREEAM status of ‘Excellent’, or better, as well as ‘Platinum’ ratings for WELL (health and well-being), Wiredscore (broadband connectivity) and ActiveScore (commuter convenience). In addition, a minimum EPC energy efficiency rating of ‘B’ rating will be achieved.
Peterborough Court has excellent transport and cycle connections adjacent to the Fleet Street conservation area. The property will offer c. 600 cycle spaces, EV charging points, luxury showers, lockers, changing and support facilities to appeal to London’s cyclist commuter market. The design features SMART technology, outdoor spaces, attractive on-site F&B amenities and impressive leisure facilities. The building is expected to exceed LETI 2030 and RIBA Climate Challenge 2030 embodied carbon targets.
The £120 million investment programme for Peterborough Court is managed by Broadwater Capital.
Mace, the international construction and consultancy firm, has been appointed as the main contractor on the scheme and will be supported by JRA for architectural services and BDP for structures and lighting. Gardiner & Theobald provide Project Management and Cost Consultancy services and Gerald Eve act as the planning advisor.
Stewart Ward, Managing Director of Mace, Interiors, said:
“We are delighted that the Mace interiors team will be playing a key role in delivering such an ambitious landmark project. As a responsible business we are particularly proud to deliver workplaces with strong sustainability credentials and we look forward in making this bold vision a reality.”
Phillip Bennison, Head of Development and Investment at Broadwater Capital, said:
“Demand for prime, amenity-focused offices in central London continues to strengthen post-pandemic, as businesses seek to create engaging and versatile spaces for employees to work together, especially those with embedded cosy, relaxed open spaces and innovative features.’
“Peterborough Court will be remodelled to provide corporates with a world-class headquarters, designed to the highest sustainability standards, and to promote well-being, productivity and collaborative working. Peterborough Court combines the highest contemporary ESG standards with an iconic address, a fantastic workspace environment, specular City views and impeccable transportation links.”
