The specialist engineering contractor previously undertook asbestos removal, demolition and enabling works at the former Royal Horse Artillery headquarters, in St John’s Wood.  

The site will be transformed into a residential scheme providing 120 homes and 59 affordable rental apartments. 

McGee will now undertake piling, excavation, and reinforced concrete works, and the installation of bearings on the five-acre basement.  

Work to retain the Grade II-Listed Riding School is also being carried out at the 2.2-hectare site. 

Gareth Stow, COO for St John’s Wood Square Limited, said: “We selected McGee after a competitive process based on their team, technical response to a complex build, attention to detail and strong track record.  

“We are looking forward to working on the next stage of the project with McGee, following their successful demolition works, to deliver a significant basement contract.” 

Seb Fossey, MD of McGee, added: “The whole McGee team are incredibly proud and excited to have been appointed to deliver the next phase of this major super-prime scheme, building on the relationship and trust earned with the client team. 

“Throughout the demolition and enabling works, we’ve shown our passion and ability to deliver on our commitments. We look forward to continuing this collaborative approach throughout the rest of this prestigious project.”
