Propping Up Piccadilly

Works are well underway at our project in Piccadilly. We’re using temporary propping to support adjacent buildings during the demolition phase of the project.

We’ve worked on many such projects in London where heavy duty temporary propping is required to support buildings.  With over 400 schemes completed in London, we’re used to working in difficult conditions where access is restricted, and noise levels strictly monitored.

We’re looking forward to the next phase of the Piccadilly project and will keep you posted.

Could we help with your London construction project?  Please call us on +44 (0) 1923 630 100 or send an email to  One of our team will be in touch to see how we can help.

The verdict is in. Middle Temple works begin.

Shaca construction are thrilled to be working alongside Willmott Dixon Interiors on the transformation and refurbishment of this historic and grade II listed property in Holborn.

The building used by the Honourable Society of Middle Temple will be transformed into modern purpose designed accommodation for Barristers’ chambers.

We are working in phases to ensure as little disruption as possible. Starting with refurbishing 1-2 Garden Court.

Once that is complete, the final phase is the refurbishment of Blackstone House, which includes an extension to the 6th floor and work to the ground floor atrium.

We are currently at the beginning stages and look forward to seeing the finished project.

Shaca Construction are fired up about this exciting London project!

Westminster Fire Station redevelopment

Shaca Construction have been appointed to work with Paragon to refurbish the Grade II Listed former Westminster Fire Station at 4 Greycoat Place. The Fire Brigade Station was originally built in 1906, replacing a nearby station on Francis Street.

The site is being redeveloped with a restaurant and residential accommodation. The building will accommodate one and three bedroom units.

The Grade II listed building at the rear will be designed to minimize impact on neighbours and also accommodate residential units.

17 new apartments, commercial space, a basement and underpinning  the existing foundations will be included in this exciting project. There will be a newly landscaped courtyard implemented  as a shared amenity and bespoke apartments will consist of original characteristics. We can't wait to see this finished project in 2020.

Battersea Power Station to Power Up Again!

Battersea Power Station will once again be a source of energy supply for Londoners following the creation of a new Energy Centre 40 years after being taken out of service.

It  is set to become one of the largest of its kind ever to be created in the UK.

Shaca Construction are working alongside Vital Energi on the structural build and are now in the process of fitting it out ahead of completion in 2020.

To create the vast underground space adjacent to the River Thames, and in front of the Grade II* listed building has come with many issues and has been problematic

150,000 cubic metres of earth have been excavated and taken away using river barges. Some 16,000 cubic metres of concrete was poured, 4,200 tonnes of steel structure installed and 13,000 cubic metres of blockwork laid in what was undoubtedly a major construction and engineering challenge.

The new Energy Centre will be underground and provide natural sound proofing.


We are looking forward to seeing the finished project of this iconic building.

Stephenson House

Shaca Construction have been busy assisting on a 225,000 square ft project in London to demolish a current property and redevelop it to a 7-storey commercial space. The space comprises of  17 residential apartments and retail space. The developer has yet to undertake a scheme like Stephenson House and this is their first project of this nature.

The project comes with some difficult challenges such as 5 party walls to be kept in agreement, building 3 new substations and the fact that the site is located adjacent to the HS2 Crossrail Link, this is a logistically challenging project. We are excited to see the finished project and proud to be part of it.
