Bam Construct is understood to have been chosen to deliver a new office and hotel development in Manchester.
The appointment is expected to be confirmed in mid-January.
Client Ask Real Estate has picked the firm for the 17-storey building in the south of Manchester city centre.
Office space will occupy most of the bottom 11-storeys, with some of the space being used for commercial units. A hotel with 205 bedrooms will be spread across the upper storeys.
Plans for the development have been recommended for approval ahead of a planning committee meeting due to take place today.
The hotel is part of the wider 17-acre First Street development in Greater Manchester. A 279 apartment student accommodation and office are already open and a second office, called No 8, is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018.
Bam Construct was also picked to deliver a 6,500 capacity car park at Manchester Airport earlier this year.
