Winners for the project management framework at Canary Wharf are expected by the end of this year

Canary Wharf, which is co-owned by the Qatar Investment Authority and Multiplex owner Brookfield, is looking at moving away from a focus on offices at the Docklands estate and broadening the mix of tenants in the wake of post-pandemic working practices and higher borrowing costs.

The group is drawing up several frameworks of firms across a range of disciplines including cost consultants, M&E and structures.

Last week, 黑洞社区 revealed that T&T Alinea, Mace, AtkinsR茅alis and Exigere had made the cost consultants framework, having been whittled down from an initial shortlist of eight.

Meanwhile, KPF has won the architectural competition to reimagine the HSBC tower in Canary Wharf which the banking giant is planning to move out of by 2027 and into new, smaller offices in the City.
