Morgan Sindall has won £47m of work on Liverpool’s Paddington Village development.
The contractor was appointed by Liverpool City Council for two phases of the huge extension of the city’s Knowledge Quarter.
Morgan Sindall will design and build the Royal College of Physicians’ Northern Centre of Excellence under a £35m deal.
It well also carry out £12m of early works on the site. This first phase, due to start on site this summer, will include installation of infrastructure, creation of public realm and delivery of development plots.
The second phase will see a 140,000 sq ft building to house the RCP and associated institutions and life science businesses.
Preconstruction has already started, with the building due to handover in late 2019.
Both projects were procured through the North West Construction Hub framework.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said: “Paddington Village is creating a huge amount of interest from investors and the first spade in the ground, which is always a symbolic moment for any development, will no doubt further boost that momentum and confidence.
“I’m delighted to see that Morgan Sindall has won the contract via the North West Construction Hub because it is vital we ensure projects like the Knowledge Quarter create and support jobs from the construction phase right through to the end use of the facilities.’’
