Battersea Power Station phase 1 facing West

Brookfield Multiplex has emerged as the final firm on the five-strong shortlist for the £350m first phase of the Battersea Power Station development.

As Building revealed last week, Brookfield joins four other firms in the race for the job - Sir Robert McAlpine, Lend Lease, Laing O’Rourke and Carillion.

The full shortlist for Battersea Power Station Phase One:

  • Sir Robert McAlpine
  • Lend Lease
  • Laing O’Rourke
  • Carillion
  • Brookfield

Sir Robert McAlpine is already on site at Battersea doing preparation work, and one industry source said the impression in the market was that the contractor was the clear favourite to win the overall construction contract, which is worth around £350m.

The first phase of the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station was granted detailed planning permission last December.

The Ian Simpson and dRMM- designed scheme comprises two mixed-use buildings of varied heights between 8 and 18 storeys.

They will be built to the west of the power station next to a new six-acre public park and will provide 800 apartments, a 120-bed hotel, 230 student apartments, and space for cafes, restaurants, bars, a gym, pool, spa, theatre and office studios.
