The construction and civil engineering giant Carillion has been enlisted to build a new landmark office building in Manchester city centre.
Joint venture development partners Argent and the Greater Manchester Property Venture Fund (GMPVF) handed the contract to the company that built the Beetham Tower, the tallest residential building in Europe and now an iconic sight along the Manchester skyline.
The planned construction will see several hundred thousand square feet of new Grade A office space delivered close to the historic Manchester Library and Town Hall buildings.
“One St Peter’s Square is not only a building of significant architectural merit but it will also create a new landmark building at the gateway to the city centre,” said John Rodaway from Carillion.
“We have previously worked with Argent and we are very happy to have the opportunity to continue our successful working relationship,” he added.
The news of a Carillion’s appointment came not long after it emerged that KPMG, the consultancy and accounting firm, had signed up to take 63,000 sq ft of office at the planned Manchester development. However, there remains a further 210,000 sq ft of offices to be accounted for at the site.
Kieran Quinn, chairman of the GMPVF said: “We underwent a vigorous and lengthy process to ensure that the right contractor was selected for the construction of One St Peter’s Square.
“Experience, reputation and ability to deliver were of paramount importance as we are committed to ensuring that this is a very high quality scheme and that it is completed within the projected time frame.”
Carillion is headquartered in Wolverhampton in the Midlands but its operations extend into the Middle East, North America and across Europe. It employs roughly 50,000 people worldwide.
