Make's success continues with huge West End scheme

Make is continuing its extraordinary rise with the appointment to one of the largest construction projects in London's West End in recent years.

Developer Project Abbey took on Ken Shuttleworth's practice yesterday, hours after winning a bidding war for the mammoth Middlesex Hospital site in Fitzrovia.

The practice, which has grown dramatically over the last two years, will now draw up a masterplan for the 1.2ha site.

As it stands, Make has only one completed scheme to date, but continues to win work with exceptional frequency.

The firm will work with high-end development firm Candy and Candy, who will oversee the project, with a particular focus on the interiors.

Richard Williams, chief operating officer of CPC, which part-owns Project Abbey, said he was excited by the development.

He said: 'We are delighted to have purchased the site and look forward to working closely with Ken Shuttleworth and Make.

'We will create a mixed-development scheme out of the existing fabric that will rejuvenate the existing area.'
