Buro Happold appointed as consultant for Battersea power station

Consultant Buro Happold has been appointed to provide engineering services to the Battersea Power Station Development Company today.

The firm will provide structural and civil engineering designs for phase one of the Battersea power station redevelopment in south London. Buro Happold’s appointment comes as London mayor Boris Johnson renewed his commitment to the proposed £600M Northern Line Extension to the scheme.

“We are truly delighted to have been appointed to the Battersea power station development,” said Buro Happold principal Justin Phillips. “It follows on from our regeneration work across the Lower Lea Valley site which saw the delivery of the triumphant Olympic Stadium and the masterplanning for the site’s conversion from black spot to sporting hot spot.”

Phase one consists of a new 160,000m² residential development over 18 storeys, a ground floor retail and leisure zone and two levels of basement parking. Design development has already begun ready for basement construction beginning next summer.

The Malaysian consortium of SP Setia, Sime Darby and the Employees Provident Fund is backing the Battersea power station redevelopment that will cost £8bn in total.
