Posted on: 24/10/2017

Laing O’Rourke has been named the preferred contractor for new Brent Cross shopping centre extension, expected to be worth £700m.

A pre-construction services agreement has been signed by Hammerson and Standard Life Investments, as part of a two-stage tender process for the construction works.

The appointment of a contractor for the infrastructure works has not yet been made. However, Barhale, Clancy Docwra and Murphy are all believed to be in the running.

Included will be a approx. 150 new shops, 50 restaurants, an ultra-modern leisure and cinema space, hotel accommodation, and improved public spaces.

As well as a new town square, the project will also comprise of a larger bus station, and improved transport & highways infrastructure.

As the construction workforce is set to peak around 1,200 people, a work experience, apprenticeships and graduate development intake has been agreed by the delivery partners, making the Brent Cross project an industry training ground.
