The second phase of the Battersea Power Station regeneration project has been selected as 'Building Project of the Year over £10 million' at the Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards 2023.
Phase 2 comprises the transformation of the power station itself, along with delivery of a new energy centre and riverside park.
The iconic power station forms the centrepiece of the 42-acre regeneration site bought by a consortium of Malaysian investors in 2012, with the two vast turbine halls now filled with over 100 shops and restaurants. The redevelopment also provides over 250 new homes, around 500,000 square feet of office space - including Apple’s new London Campus - and a 2,000 capacity events venue.
The judges said: “A complex, Grade II listed restoration, carried out sympathetically whilst minimising environmental impact and preserving an iconic structure - repurposing it to safeguard its future. A superb example of best practice, innovation and technical achievement overcoming the extensive and wide-ranging challenges in such a project. This unique project embodied all elements required of a winner in this category – an exemplary project, based upon a strong, collaborative team. A worthy winner of this category.”
The new-look Battersea Power Station officially opened its doors to the public on October 14, 2022, almost forty years after the Grade II listed building was decommissioned.
McBains has provided project monitoring services to a consortium of funders for Phases 1, 2 and 3 of works on the iconic, Grade II* listed Power Station since 2013.
