Bidding starts for £600M Battersea Power Station Phase 2 centrepiece

Start of work on the main part of Phase 2 of the £8Bn Battersea Power Station project is in sight after bids were invited for the £600 million contract for redeveloping the iconic power station itself.

 

Four firms have been invited to bid for the main contract on phase 2 of the mixed use scheme. Balfour Beatty, Lend Lease, Skanska, and Mace are understood to have been invited to bid for the £600M construction job, with an appointment set to be made later in the summer.

 

This main redevelopment of the power station building will feature retail and events space on lower floors with 58,000m2 of offices above and 248 flats at the top of the building.

 

The Power Station is at the heart of a wider 40 acre mixed use development that will comprise office space for around 5000 people, approximately 200 shops and restaurants, a state of the art performance venue, cinema and a boutique hotel all set amongst 18 acres of public space including a new six acre riverside park.

 

The redevelopment of the whole site will create  hundreds of construction jobs, 15,000 new jobs, 3,500 new homes and a privately funded extension of London Underground at Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station.

 

Mace is already acting as construction manager on the first element of phase 2, worth £100M. This involves the repair and restoration of the structure itself including the demolition and rebuilding of the chimneys. Work on the first of the four chimneys is due to start within weeks.

 

Carillion is already working on the £400 million first phase, a contract to build 866 apartments.

 

Various consultants have already been appointed on the project, including architect Wilkinson Eyre, cost consultant Gardiner & Theobald, structural engineer Buro Happold, conservation architect Purcell and services engineer Chapman BDSP.
