Aecom has landed the construction partner role on an £800M residential tower.
The firm was named as preferred construction partner for the Spire London development.
Chinese developer Greenland Group said the 235m high building was set to become the tallest housing tower in western Europe.
The HOK-designed 67-storey structure will feature 861 apartments.
Main construction is expected to start later this year, with completion by the end of 2020.
Bachy Soletanche will deliver the geotechnical works on the development, with pilings work due to complete in November.
Greenland (UK) Investments managing director Wenhao Qian said: “Spire London is set to become one of London’s iconic, landmark buildings, and it is vital that we have the right team in place that can deliver a project of this scale.
“Aecom has been a trusted partner for Greenland on our extensive portfolio, and we are delighted to have awarded them the pre-construction services agreement for the main construction works. We look forward to building our relationship with them as we work together to bring Spire London to life.”
Aecom Construction Services group president Dan McQuade said: “We are very excited to work with Greenland on this iconic project in the heart of London’s Docklands. It will be our fifth project working together across the globe, and we look forward to further strengthening our relationship and helping Greenland to bring its vision to life”.
The record for the UK’s most heavily loaded pile was recently broken on the Spire London site.
