St James's Gateway

VolkerHighways has completed the hard and soft landscaping of the prestigious development of St. James's Gateway in central London, a scheme that involved the consolidation of seven buildings into commercial, retail and residential space, as well as public realm enhancements.

The £540,000 contract, which consisted of the installation of yorkstone footways and granite set carriageways, is part of a wider scheme to regenerate the area to attract new high-end businesses.  

In order to preserve some of the historic features of the area, VolkerHighways undertook a delicate restoration and re-installation of 130 year old listed gas lamps in Eagle Place. This ensured the works remained sensitive to the location, which is a conservation area.

This high profile scheme has seen the area regenerated to reflect modern London, whilst preserving the historic architecture that makes London so unique.

VolkerHighways is experienced in working within central London areas and all members of the teams deal safely, sensitively and efficiently with the challenges faced in these highly crowded areas. Measures were taken in order to maintain the safety of the pedestrians, whilst also allowing them to navigate safely around the works so their journeys could continue without disruptions.
