Sir Robert McAlpine has been appointed to redevelop the Broadmarsh shopping centre in Nottingham.

The £86m transformation has already been given the go-ahead by Nottingham city council and while preparatory work has been underway for a number of months the contractor will start work on site in the coming weeks.

Designed by Westfield London architect firm Benoy, the Broadmarsh scheme is the latest in the pipeline for shopping centre developer Intu, which operates 17 shopping centres in the UK and last year unveiled a 400,000ft² extension to its Watford development which was built by Laing O’Rourke.

It also plans to launch a £72m Lakeside leisure scheme in Essex later this year.

Martin Breeden, Intu’s development director, said the company’s Broadmarsh scheme would help the council’s plans to regenerate the wider area.
