Battersea Power Station project director resigns

Battersea Power Station project director Aidan McLeod has resigned after nearly three years in the job, Construction News understands.

Mr McLeod had been with Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC), which is working on the redevelopment of the 17 ha site, since August 2014.  

BPSDC declined to comment on his departure.

Bouygues was appointed as contractor for the £1bn phase three role at Battersea in 2015, but exited the scheme in March this year.

BPSDC is now hunting for a main contractor to take on the role and has since made alterations to its affordable housing programme for phase three. 

Approximately 1,300 homes within two residential blocks to the south of the Grade II-listed former power station will be delivered in this phase.

However, BPSDC submitted plans in April for more than 100 affordable homes to be relocated to a later phase of the project.

To compensate for the move, 386 affordable homes within phase 4a will be brought forward from the current delivery requirement.
