Laing O’Rourke has been appointed under a pre-construction services agreement as part of a two stage tender process for the main construction works with an overall value in the region of £700m.

Hammerson and Standard Life Investments, joint owners of Brent Cross Shopping Centre, will now work with the contractor to finalise the design and procurement to enable a start on site in 2018.

The regeneration of Brent Cross will double the size of the existing centre to 2 million sq ft of retail and leisure space. This will include up to 150 new retail stores and 50 new restaurants, as well as a cinema, a hotel and improved public spaces including a new town square. The plans also include a relocated and enlarged bus station as well as improved transport and highways infrastructure.

The scheme is designed by architects Callison RTKL and Chapman Taylor.

Laing O’Rourke’s recent record in this sector includes Trinity Leeds, Westgate Oxford and Edinburgh St James Quarter developments..

Liam Cummins, head of UK building for Laing O’Rourke, said; “Laing O’Rourke has the ability to drive certainty into the delivery programme through in-house technical expertise and procurement capacity, our integrated supply chain and advanced digital engineering and offsite manufacturing. The project is in total alignment with our 2025 mission to be the recognised leader of innovation and excellence in the construction industry.

“We will collaboratively define – then deliver – success for our clients, partners and the wider community on Brent Cross, undoubtedly one of London’s most exciting and anticipated retail regenerations.”
