Sir Robert McAlpine has been confirmed to complete phase three of the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station.
The firm was officially named today as construction manager on the 1,300-home phase of the iconic London scheme.
Bouygues initially landed the £1bn job but it was announced earlier this year that the French contractor’s involvement would not go beyond pre-construction works.
Project client Battersea Power Station Development Company today said an “intensive handover process” was underway.
“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,” it said in a statement.
Designed by Gehry Partners and Foster + Partners, phase three features a hotel and retail space.
Battersea Power Station Development Company chief operating officer Simon Jenner said: “Sir Robert McAlpine has demonstrated a comprehensive and robust understanding of our objectives; it has identified a strong, proven team with highly relevant experience; and it has shown a true desire and enthusiasm to work on this exciting and demanding project.”
The seven-phase Battersea Power Station project forms part of the overall Nine Elms scheme, which features 42 interconnected development sites close to the River Thames.
