Bam Nuttall is the preferred bidder to deliver infrastructure work for the £4.5bn Brent Cross South property development, in North London.   

The infrastructure contract is part of the wider scheme to build a 72ha mixed-use neighbourhood at Brent Cross South. 

Under the contract, Bam Nuttall will deliver new and improved parks, public spaces, roads, as well as implementing drainage and utilities, in preparation for the construction of new homes, workspace and retail and leisure. 

The project will create 7,500 new homes, more than 370,000m2 of workspace, and up to 27,000 new jobs. 

The development also includes a new Thameslink railway station. The has government pledged £320M from its Housing Infrastructure Fund to develop the station and surrounding areas.  

The station was officially approved by Network Rail last month. It will have four platforms, a public right of way footbridge providing access to the new platforms

A joint venture between Barnet Council and Argent Related has been set up to deliver the project.  

Argent Related development director Anthony Peter said: “Bam Nuttall has been selected as Brent Cross South’s long-term infrastructure delivery partner; this is a critical role to help us achieve the level of the scale and ambition that we have for the new place. Bam Nuttall was chosen based on the quality of its team, its experience, innovation, approach to long-term partnering as well the respect it has for the local community; these values mirror ours and are particularly important for long-term regeneration schemes such as this.” 

Earlier this month, Vattenfall was selected as preferred partner to deliver the district heating infrastructure on the site, including the UK’s largest installation of heat pumps. 

The infrastructure contract will run for between 10 and 15 years. While the full Brent Cross South scheme is expected to be delivered in 2030.
