Multiplex has won a £200 million scheme to build an office-led development at Holborn Viaduct in London.

The international construction company, Multiplex, has won a contract to build a new workspace development, valued between £150 million and £200 million, according to Building.

The structure will sit at the intersection of Holborn Viaduct and Farringdon Street, standing 10 floors tall on the former and 12 floors from the latter.

Royal London Asset Management (RLAM) is leading the development of the scheme, securing planning permission from the City of London Corporation in 2021.

Inside the scheme 

RLAM worked with PLP Architecture to design the 34,300 sqm, BREEAM outstanding, building. 

Along with the office space, the site will include: 

  • A grade II listed south-eastern gatehouse. 
  • Cycle parking spaces. 
  • Cargo-bike parking facilities.
  • A new wellness hub. 
  • A new lift. 

RLAM signed a lease agreement in 2022 with law firm Hogan Lovells allowing the firm to occupy an almost 25,000 sqm space on the site. It will move into the building in 2026. 


Other firms working on the scheme include: 

  • Avison Young (project manager). 
  • Heyne Tillett Steel (steel structures firm). 
  • Hilson Moran (building services engineer).
  • Quantem (quantity surveyor). 
  • FMDC (facades and materials consultant). 

RLAM was approached for comment, and Multiplex has declined to comment.
