Preparing for the future, preserving the best of the past
Skanska is carrying out demolition work at 55-91 Knightsbridge, in preparation for a new development on the site.
Running until October 2017, the works see the removal of the building, down to basement level. The team will clean and retain the mansion block’s early 20th century, Grade II-listed façade, which forms part of the conservation area, near Hyde Park.
Skanska’s qualities shone through
Two key qualities helped Skanska win the contract. These were our experience in traffic management and logistics and our expertise in façade retention systems and demolition within tight constraints.
Skanska secured the contract through a competitive tender process, following a successful pre-construction service agreement, where the team undertook asbestos removal, investigative and enabling works.
Situated in the heart of Knightsbridge, the site is bound by two five-star hotels, residential properties, retail outlets and offices.
