Race starts for £50m Nottingham bus station revamp

Nottingham City Council has begun its search for a contractor to build a new £50m bus station and multi-storey car park in the city centre.

The council plans to build a multi-storey car park with space for 1,150 cars and a new bus station on the site of the former Broadmarsh car park.

The site also has the potential space for 48 residential units.

The winning contractor, which will work on a design-and-build basis, will also be required to retain four adjacent retail units to the site, which will remain occupied and trading throughout the project.

In total, the project is expected to last 18 months.

The project represents the latest stage in the city’s major overhaul of its ageing Broadmarsh shopping centre, which is being comprehensively remodelled by client Intu.

In August, Sir Robert McAlpine beat rival bidders Bowmer & Kirkland and Laing O’Rourke to the £150m contract to demolish and rebuild large areas of the existing shopping centre.

Broadmarsh’s gross internal floorspace will more than halve from around 592,000 sq ft to 243,500 sq ft, with around 267,000 sq ft of internal floorspace set to be lost due to either change of use or demolition.

The refurbishment (pictured) is expected to begin in December 2017, with the centre reopening in late 2019/early 2020 on a phased basis.
