Miller sinks rivals to take P&O head office

CONTRACTS SOUTHAMPTON

MILLER has sailed away with a £20 million deal for the headquarters of the company that owns cruise liner f irm P&O.

The company saw off competition from Bowmer & Kirkland, Warings, HBG and Wates to take the deal to build Carnival UK's new headquarters in Southampton.

The building forms part of the third phase of the £300 million West Quay development, the former home of tyre manufacturer Pirelli.

Development Securities owns the 999-year lease for the western side of phase three and submitted the planning application on behalf of Carnival.

The building will be six storeys high and provide 13,700 sqm of office space plus car parking. Work will start on site early next year and is due to finish in winter 2008.
