Contractor Sir Robert McAlpine has been appointed to build Hammerson’s £70m WestQuay extension in Southampton.

The leaisure-led development will include a 10 screen cinema, up to 20 restaurants and a public plaza.

It will sit next to the current WestQuay shopping centre, which Hammerson jointly owns.

Guy Wells, Hammerson’s development manager, said: “Sir Robert McAlpine is a welcome addition to the WestQuay Watermark team.

“Their extensive experience of delivering high-quality schemes will be fundamental to the timely delivery and quality of the development.”
