Wayne McKiernan


Wayne is a key member of our management team and has wide-ranging experience on a variety of projects at all stages. He brings a focus on the London market to the project and is well-versed with getting projects constructed on time and to budget in the capital.


He led the design and oversaw the delivery of the complex building façade for The Francis Crick Institute, a project that created a new world-class scientific research facility and workplace in the heart of London’s busiest transportation hub and adjacent to St Pancras station. His work here included the delivery of the successful planning application for the project.


Wayne led the team and oversaw the delivery to completion of Sky Central, our new headquarters for Sky TV which you have already heard a lot about. The building supports agile, task-based working for 3,500 employees and includes multiple food outlets as well as sports and leisure amenities, including a 200 seat showpiece cinema and a prominent Sky News live broadcast studio.


He led the design coordination of several projects at pre-planning stage in London. These include 4-6 Stanhope Gate, a flagship project for The Clivedale Group, which integrates the redevelopment of three buildings to create a high-profile residential building off Park Lane with additions to listed facades. At 73 Brook Street, our redevelopment will create a new office headquarters building for the owner/developer Clivedale Ventures along with offices for several separate organisations. It replaces a 1970s building to better relate the site to its setting within the Mayfair Conservation Area. Wayne also led a challenging and vital project for Land Securities to enable Transport for London to deliver a critical stage of its multi-million-pound Victoria Transport Interchange works.


Wayne also has extensive experience working on feasibility studies, including the redevelopment of a disused post office distribution depot on New Oxford Street into offices and the conversion of other existing facilities to provide new commercial offices in a challenging location in central London. He led and coordinated a proposal to redevelop a site on the Isle of Dogs to provide a mixed-use scheme of offices, residential, education and retail.
