Lucas Scoops New Project in Shard Place
Lucas has won the full decorations package for Shard Place, a 26-storey residential development located alongside The Shard and The News Building, which marks the third phase of the 2.5 million sq ft regeneration of Shard Quarter.
Shard Place will deliver 176 private residential apartments of varied configuration including studio and one, two and three bedroom apartments. Amenities include a lounge, cinema, spa and gym on the fourth floor, a double height lounge and private roof terrace on level 16, and a steam room and sun deck on the roof.
Lucas painting teams will start next year on the basement and back of house areas applying specialist resin coatings and anti-graffiti treatments, before moving on to the complete decoration of all the residential units scheduled for completion in 2020. The Construction Manager for the project is Mace and the developer is Real Estate Management (UK) Limited and Sellar.
Lucas finishing and fit out teams previously completed major contracts on both The Shard and the News Building. Space in and around the site will be at a premium so we will make full use of our well-tested Logistics Centre to deliver supplies on a just-in-time basis, to work most effectively with other trades at the development and assist with the smooth construction process.
