We are known for our experience delivering large complex projects for both the public and private sector. Delivered for external clients or through our integrated business, we are focused on creating a positive legacy wherever we operate. We are experienced across all sectors including defence, justice, education, residential, retail and commercial.

Lendlease Development

In the UK, Lendlease is working on a number of exciting mixed-use regeneration projects, including Birmingham Smithfield, Thamesmead Waterside Elephant Park and International Quarter London. In 2018, it was chosen as the Council’s Principal Contractor for phase one of Birmingham’s Perry Barr regeneration, delivering 1,400 homes, due for completion in 2022.

Lendlease is also responsible for the Over Station Development at Euston, working closely with HS2, Network Rail, Department for Transport, London Borough of Camden and wider stakeholders to deliver a transformational outcome for the community of Camden, London and the wider UK.

In June 2018, Lendlease announced plans for the acquisition with Starwood Capital, subject to pre-completion conditions of The Silvertown Partnership, which holds development rights for a major urban renewal project in London’s Royal Docks.

Lendlease was recognised as the UK’s Most Sustainable Residential Developer by the Next Generation Sustainability Benchmark, for setting new standards of sustainability and customer engagement for the last three years, scoring more than double the industry average.

Smithfield Birmingham

The vision for Smithfield is to create a sustainable, green and inclusive place.

Located in the heart of Birmingham, Smithfield will provide a new home for the city’s historic Bull Ring markets, outstanding new leisure and cultural spaces, including a festival square and landscaped park, integrated public transport, and over 3,000 new homes alongside community facilities.

Lendlease is working collaboratively with the local community through consultation and with Birmingham City Council to ensure the transformation of the site is sustainable and delivers the facilities and features that matter most to the local communities.

Project Outcome

The site will be an international destination, created and shaped by local people – building upon a rich diversity in the city and providing a place for Birmingham’s communities to come together and share experiences and new ideas.

Smithfield is an area in Birmingham city centre which includes the former wholesale markets, plus the current Indoor, Open and Rag markets as well as some surrounding land and buildings. It is key to unlocking the potential and growth of the city and for the long-term economic and social prosperity for the region. The project is intended to maximise opportunities for Birmingham residents to experience good work opportunities, with potential for up to 8,000 new jobs through-out the development phase and in operation.

The new market at Smithfield will celebrate Birmingham and be an iconic new centrepiece for the city centre. We will build on its history and support the area to keep its role at the heart of Birmingham’s economy. The Smithfield project aims to provide all retail and office space built to BREEAM sustainability standard.

Perry Barr Residential Scheme

Construction on the first phase of the Perry Barr Residential Scheme was completed by Lendlease in 2023. 

Almost 1,000 new homes were made available on the former university campus in the north of the city.

Completion of the new homes was announced at the same time that Lendlease, the principal contractor for the scheme on behalf of Birmingham City Council, revealed the project had beaten a number of targets it was set in order to help support the local economy and bring wider community benefits.

Birmingham Business Charter for Social Responsibility

Lendlease adopted the Charter with an action plan in place with 32 social value targets. As part of this plan, it worked in partnership with Birmingham City Council's Employment Access Team (EAT) to promote jobs and training opportunities, as well as advertising works packages to suppliers through FinditinBirmingham.

More than 650 new jobs were created for local people throughout the construction, including almost 100 apprenticeships, and more than 1,350 people were upskilled on the site.

Highlights included a Women in Construction course and working with Solihull College to deliver English for Construction courses for people who had English as a second language, a key tool for increasing safety through better communication on a site which at its peak had 26 different nationalities of workers on the project. 

Over the course of the £326m contract, £267m was spent by Lendlease with local businesses and workers devoted 2,679 hours to volunteering in the local area.

About the scheme

The new homes at Perry Barr consisted of a mix of homes for rent and sale, surrounded by accessible green space. The tallest building on the scheme topped out at fifteen storeys. The scheme was part of a wider £700million-plus regeneration of Perry Barr in the north-west of the city, including improved leisure and community facilities along with upgraded transport infrastructure, all of which is underpinned by the Perry Barr 2040 Masterplan, developed by the Council in partnership with local residents and stakeholders.

Lendlease were the Management Contractor for this first phase of the Perry Barr Residential Scheme, working with Kier, Willmott Dixon, PJ Careys and Vinci UK to deliver the project.
