An intensive handover process is already underway, and Sir Robert McAlpine’s Phase 3 team will continue to grow over the coming months. This change in contracting partner has not affected the existing progress on site as the trade contractors are already directly appointed by the developer and their ongoing management has continued during this transitional period.

Phase 3 is a key part of the Battersea Power Station project which features over 1,300 new homes, a hotel, shops and restaurants and a new London Underground station. The phase has been designed by world renowned architects, Gehry Partners, and Foster + Partners, and will include a new pedestrianised high street, Electric Boulevard, which will run from the new Underground station up to the Power Station.

Simon Jenner, COO of Battersea Power Station Development Company, said:
“On behalf of the shareholders, we are pleased to welcome Sir Robert McAlpine to the project. Sir Robert McAlpine have demonstrated a comprehensive and robust understanding of our objectives; they have identified a strong, proven team with highly relevant experience and have shown a true desire and enthusiasm to work on this exciting and demanding project.
This is another step towards the successful completion of this phase and we look forward to working with their team in due course. ”

Sir Robert McAlpine’s Managing Director for London, Paul Heather, said:
“We are delighted to be involved at the Battersea scheme and look forward to working successfully with the developer and consultant team on the completion of Battersea Power Station phase 3a.”
