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.

With an aim for the project to start in 2018, Laing O’Rourke will now finalise the design and procurement.

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.

The new revamp scheme of Brent Cross Shopping Centre will double the size of the existing centre to 2m sq ft of retail, hospitality and leisure space. 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.
