Bovis takes big Manc off ice deal

BOVIS Lend Lease is set to secure an £80 million deal to build the largest office building in Manchester.

The firm beat Sir Robert McAlpine to the deal to design and build a home for credit card giant Barclaycard at 3 Hardman Street in the city centre. The work is part of developer Allied London Properties' Spinningfields project.

The scheme will feature a 15-storey tower with 37,000 sq m of office space in four stepped blocks. It will also have a basement car park. Planning permission was granted for the project, designed by Sheppard Robson, last month.

One source said: 'Spinningfields has been the major source of office building work in Manchester over recent years and there are still a few more big jobs there to let.' Work is due to start in the autumn and be completed by spring 2008.
