Buro will provide structural and civil engineering as well as specialist facades, fire, Inclusive Design, security and water engineering.
The overall scheme, which already has planning consent, will provide over 8m sq ft of mixed use development on the 38-acre power station site.
Buro Happold principal Justin Phillips said: “We are truly delighted to have been appointed to the Battersea Power Station development.
“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 1 will see 1m sq ft of residential development over 18 storeys, a ground floor retail and leisure zone and two levels of below ground parking.
Surveys and repairs to the iconic Grade II listed building will also be undertaken as part of the early works to ensure that the first occupants on site have exceptional views of this world renowned building.
Design development is already proceeding to support the commencement of basement construction in the summer of 2013.
