Carillion preferred bidder for Battersea Power Station redevelopment

UK construction company Carillion has been selected as the preferred bidder to deliver the 400m pounds first phase of redevelopment at London's Battersea Power Station.

UK construction company Carillion has been selected as the preferred bidder to deliver the 400m pounds first phase of redevelopment at London's Battersea Power Station.

The redevelopment comprises 866 apartments, including 11 penthouses, along with retail facilities, theatre space and business studios.

It covers two blocks and is built on a podium with two levels of basement parking.

The project, located within the area bounded by Battersea Power Station to the east, forms part of the overall strategy to create a high-density, mixed-use development around the restored former Grade II Power Station.

The main block will vary in height from eight storeys, 18 storeys and 12 storeys. The second block will be eight storeys high.

Main construction works for the first phase of the project will begin in summer and are scheduled for completion in 2016.

The Battersea Power Station development site is owned by a Malaysian consortium of S P Setia, Sime Darby Property and Employees' Provident Fund.

The development is being managed by British firm Battersea Power Station Development Company.

"We are delighted to have been selected as the preferred bidder for this prestigious project, which I believe reflects Carillion's reputation for delivering high-quality, value for money projects," said Carillion's Chief Executive, Richard Howson.

"We look forward to working in partnership with the Battersea Power Station Development Company to deliver this iconic project that will make a major contribution to the transformation of this historic site."

It brings the total value of new orders and probable orders for Carillion in 2013 to some £2.6bn, he added.
