The high-rise City Hall building overhaul is estimated to be worth £50m-£60m with the hunt now on for a building contractor to be selected by October this year.
Faithful & Gould has already been appointed for the multi-disciplinary professional team under an NEC3 form of contract prepared by Bond Dickinson.
The City Hall building, along with its base mechanical and electrical systems, date back to the 1960’s. As a result, the maintenance has become increasingly difficult and costly.
The planned building overhaul will include new lifts, full replacement of building services, new roof and windows with an extension to the 19th floor.
