British Land Award £3.3m St Helen’s Project to Maylim

St Helen's Square

Situated in the heart of the City, St Helen’s Square will serve as a multi-functional yet aesthetically pleasing public space. Maylim are excited to commence work on this prestigious project as Principal Contractor. Once complete the square will serve as London’s third largest open space, accommodating a variety of activities and exhibitions.

Maylim’s remit includes both hard and soft landscaping and design and build. There will also be a complex lighting scheme which will include projection lighting across the square. The project is set to be logistically challenging. Areas of the existing 1960s structure will need to be retained and worked around.

The design by Gillespies is an ode to contemporary design but also a nod towards traditional London, retaining character and charm.
